Found only in TYCO's 1978 catalog, the Super Hero Box Car was numbered in the 368-series. The car's shell and underframe are the same as the 50' Box Car (339-sereis) that TYCO had offered for years.

This set of four Super Hero Box Cars is very popular with collectors from my experience, though none appear to be any more rare than any others in this set.  All of the characters depicted in the series are DC Comics properties.
