I was just looking in the database and I realized that while DC Comics Super Heroes is now a separate theme from Marvel Super Heroes, the latter has subthemes for different movies or franchises and the former does not. It would probably be OK to categorize everything into subthemes based on whatever brand is pictured on the box, as is currently done with Marvel sets.#6857
, and #76013
would all be in the "Batman" subtheme. #30300
would be in the "The Dark Knight Rises" subtheme.#6862
would be in the "Superman" subtheme. #76002
, and #5001623
would be in the "Man of Steel" subtheme.#5002126
and the Comic-Con figs would not have any subtheme listed, like #5000022
and the Marvel Comic-Con figs. On a side note, shouldn't the Martian Manhunter fig's main picture be a picture of the package? I thought that was Brickset policy when it came to polybag sets.
Categorizing sets is confusing... I've been beginning to wonder whether it would be worthwhile for Brickset to adapt to using "tags" like shop.LEGO.com uses instead of themes and subthemes. It might make things easier when dealing with sets that seem like they should appear in multiple groups, like Creator Expert (both "Creator" and "Advanced Models"), the Marvel constraction figures (both "Constraction" and "Avengers"), or the LEGO Ninjago board game (both "Games" and "Ninjago").
