I think they make great Iron Age figures, ugly art for ugly stories in an ugly age.

I'm not sure.  If you have the Silver Age versions of the characters, you can just position the Silver Agers standing over their defeated Iron Age counterparts.  Headband Supergirl over Evil Kara.  The Supergirl that came with Silver Age Superboy standing over the new Supergirl.  Darksied having Streaky and Krypto standing on top of him.  That sort of thing

I wonder if Turner's fans will catch on once they see this stuff in 3 dimensions that his art is junk.  Sometimes you can get away with stuff on paper that, once brought to 3-D life, is revealed for what it is.

For example: Supergirl, and all too many females drawn by the younger wave of incompetent artists, has a mid-section that looks long and twisted like a piece of salt water taffy.  Is this supposed to be sexy?  Because when I was growing up, carnival freaks were not the stuff of wet dreams.

This kind of anatomy *might* squeak past on a Plastic Man figure, but not a "hot young chick."
