The scoop
This ad proves 900 numbers were not only for phone sex lines. In 1988 DC launched the Superman Action line costing a whopping $2 for the first minute and $0.45 for each additional minute...and that's in 1988 dollars. Call 6 times and get a free brass pin. That's at least $12!

So did anyone out there call the Action Line? How much trouble did you get in from your folks? I wonder how successful these 900 numbers were? I wonder if it was anywhere near as successful as the F.I.S.T. phone lines. I guess we'll never know.
