One thing that's changed a lot since I was a kid: the quality of toys that come in a Happy Meal. When I was a youngster, a Happy Meal generally came with some super cheap toy that wasn't particularly exciting. Kids today, on the other hand, still get something cheap -- but it's usually a tie-in to a movie or something you'd actually care about keeping for longer than the car ride home. Case in point? These Marvel Heroes action figures that the Golden Arches are currently giving away.

Of course, since this is America, someone is complaining about these toys and how they're the end of civilization as we know it. The Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood has targeted the figures -- particularly The Thing and The Human Torch. What's wrong with two of The Fantastic Four's main members? "One action figure, The Thing, menacingly roars 'It's clobberin' time!' each time a child presses a button on its back. Another, The Human Torch, is a man on fire."
