Recently my wife bought me this amazing gift: it's a frame with a set of Lego superheroes/villains from the Marvel and DC universes. Image below.

    @RogueJedi No, as far as I can tell they're all real Lego; there's a pretty extensive set of Marvel and DC Lego sets, and they've released some exclusives based on their video games Commented Oct 12, 2015 at 2:33

    @RogueJedi I sort of lied; the Hawkeye appears to be a custom job; I found an Etsy store selling them, but I'm not sure if it's 3d-printed, or a modified minifigure, or what Commented Oct 12, 2015 at 3:12

First Row

  • Captain America

    I'm pretty sure this is The Avengers version of the Cap minifig, although it's hard to tell. I'm basing this judgment off his belt, mainly, which in the question image appears to be very thick red; Avengers cap is the only one who has thick red bands on his belt in those locations.

    This variant is only available with the Captain America's Avenging Cycle set, released as a tie-in for the 2012 Avengers movie.

  • Spider-man

    Lego Spidey

    Based on the defined musculature on his chest, this is the "Ultimate Spider-man" variant of the Spidey minifig. Ultimate Spidey is available in almost every Spidey set released between 2012 and 2016

    The rope in his hands is, maybe obviously, meant to represent one of Spidey's web-ropes

  • Wolverine


    This is the "Astonishing Wolverine" variant (you can tell because of the blue vertical stripes on either side of his chest. This is a rare variant (although Wolvie is a pretty rare minifig to begin with), and is only available in the Wolverine's Chopper Showdown set

  • Hulk

    enter image description here

    This is notably the Hulk minifigure, which was given away as a promotional item with LEGO Store purchases in May 2012. The Hulks that you can get in the regular sets are more...hulking.

  • Falcon

    enter image description here

    Based on the guns, I think this one might be an off-brand, not the official Lego figure. I obviously can't be certain, but the picture I've included above is of an off-brand, and it's the only one I could find of Falcon carrying those guns.

    In any case, classic Falcon is only available in the Hulk Lab Smash set (which also doesn't have guns for Falcon)

  • Cyborg

    enter image description here

    Cyborg is a newcomer; his minifig was only released in September of 2015. You can get him as a Dimensions Set, or from the Darkseid Invasion set, which is also the only place you can get Hawkman

Second Row

Third Row

  • Nick Fury

    enter image description here

    This is the "Ultimate Spider-man" Nick Fury minifigure; he's only available in the Spider-Man: Spider-Cycle Chase set.

  • Hawkeye

    enter image description here

    Unlike the rest, this one doesn't appear to be an official Lego minifigure; the official one has red accents, not purple. This purple variant seems to be a custom job, from this Etsy store

  • Carnage

    enter image description here

    So far, Carnage has only appeared in a single set: Carnage's SHIELD Sky Attack

  • Loki

    enter image description here

    It looks like you have the Avengers variant of Loki, which appears in a few of the tie-in sets for the 2012 Avengers film (such as Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape); however, the standard Loki minifigure comes with a bright green cape, while the one you have appears to be wearing a black cape (although that may just be a trick of the light; it's hard to tell).

    Also note that Loki's Scepter comes in two pieces (one of which was later re-used in Ninjago); in most official images these two pieces are together, but in yours he's holding one piece in each hand.

  • Ant-Man

    enter image description here

    This seems to be another custom job, available from this Etsy store; the design is based on the classic Ant-Man look, while official products tend to follow the design from the films.

  • Brainiac

    enter image description here

    Brainiac is only available in the Brainiac Attack set.

Fourth Row

  • Wonder Woman

    enter image description here

    This is the comics variant of Diana, available in Superman vs. Power Armour Lex and a Dimensions set. She also apparently appears in an exclusive The Lego Movie tie-in set distributed to members of the press.

  • Bizarro-Batman

    enter image description here

    By most accounts, Batzarro is a very rare minifigure; as near as I can tell, the only way to get him is with the home video release of the Justice League vs. Bizarro League Lego movie. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if this one was off-brand.

  • Aquaman

    enter image description here

    This is the comics Aquaman, rather than the guyliner-tastic Justice League variant, available in a few Aquaman sets release pre-2017

  • Hawkman

    enter image description here

    As I mentioned above, Hawkman is only available in the Darkseid Invasion set. Note that the set comes with two different sets of wings: one extended (for flying) and one folded up (for going through narrow doorways). Whoever put together your product put both sets on him, hence why he looks like he has butterfly wings

  • Catwoman

    enter image description here

    Catwoman is a bit unusual because no two sets seem to have quite the same version of her minifig; I'm pretty sure, however, that you have the variant appearing in Catwoman Catcyle Chase (which also contains a diamond and that brown whip)

  • Thor

    enter image description here

    That looks like the Avengers version of the Thor minifig, which appears in a few of the sets that tie into the 2012 Avengers film (such as Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout)

Links are to the Brickipedia pages for the heroes/villains:

Unknown 1 Is indeed Falcon
Unknown 2 is Cyborg
Unknown 3 is indeed Antman
Unknown 4 is Braniac
Unknown 5 is Hawkman

    And the one labeled Deadpool is definitely Carnage.

Bottom row "Unknown 5" is Hawkman. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawkman Not sure about the rest.
