RINGS AND BLING

THERE'VE been a few DC Comics-endorsed flight rings over the years, ranging from good quality gold-plated items to cheap, plastic toys.
There are also numerous custom-made ones; this list only includes official licensed products.

 

DC COMICS GOLD-PLATED RING (1997)
The first DC-sanctioned ring, a handsome 14K, gold-plated item, came in a variety of sizes and in an attractive box bearing the disclaimer: “Warning! This ring does not enable the wearer to fly!”

 


DC DIRECT FIGURES FLIGHT RING (2001)
The DC DIRECT figures of Saturn Girl, Cosmic Boy, and Lightning Lad each came with a plastic flight ring (and flight belt).

 


DCU CLASSICS 12-PACK FLIGHT RING (2011)
The highly coveted DC UNIVERSE CLASSICS Legion of Super-Heroes 12-pack made by Mattel includes a 24-carat gold-plated, shiny Legion flight ring, but most collectors will probably keep it within its casing in the Legion Clubhouse box the set comes in.

 


PROMOTIONAL PLASTIC FLIGHT RING (2011)
A promotional plastic Legion ring was given away with copies of LEGION: SECRET ORIGIN 1. The band of the ring was split in the middle so it could be adjusted to fit any finger.

 


THINK GEEK FLIGHT RING (2015)
A gold-plated, stainless steel ring and licensed from DC was released by the company Think Geek, which came in a box that oddly bore Superman’s symbol (instead of, as one might expect, the Legion’s).

 


HEROCLIX FLIGHT RING (2015)
The LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES Heroclix series included a plastic flight ring as a "3D Special Object", which also had its own card (S101).

 


 

GOLD AND PLATINUM RINGS (2020)
To commemorate the first issue of the revamped LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, limited edition gold and platinum plastic flight rings were manufactured, the latter only available to retailers with every 100 issues of the book ordered.
The rings bear the revamped Legion logo.
