Super Amigos Card Game :: Mujer Halcón

This is a piece of the Super Amigos card game (juego de naipes) that comes from Argentina, as part of the Super Powers line of products released in South America. Art by the incomparable José Luis García López. All stats are presented using the metrical system; however, they seem a little off if you ask me:


Height: 5'5"

Weight: 55 Kg

Strength: 340 Kg

Battles won: 816

Speed: 177 Miles per hour

According to amos del retro, E2 was Hawkwoman from the first edition. The E set of four comprised of E1 Wonder Woman, E3 Batgirl and E4 Supergirl.
Now, a pack of four die-cut magnets of the above-mentioned DC superheroines is available. The Supergirl magnet is from 1984 style guide by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez.
I lament that they never had a story featuring the silver age Batgirl and Hawkwoman.

I gather, in 1985, Cromy produced some fun stickers from the style guide by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez. Some were plain stickers. Some were like trading cards. Others were like puzzle cards. There were sticker albums with preprinted images.
At amos del retro, the page with Super Amigas, the top corners had Hawkwoman. Six puzzle card stickers were assembled to complete the image of Super Amigas... Supergirl, Zatanna, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, Batgirl, Wonder Girl and Hawkwoman. At the bottom corners were trading card stickers of Mera and Raven. Both were horizontal landscape images.
While I understand the reason for Raven by George Perez being at the bottom right corner, I would have preferred a sticker of Starfire, another redhead, by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez there. At the four corners would have been redheads by JLGL.

The Starfire sticker to which I was referring that should have been at the bottom right corner.
