Sometimes instead of using an "assortment tag" for the shelf tags for toys (particularly toys that ship in multifigure assortments, like DCUC), the toy people will scan a specific figure for a price tag.

 

In this case, they scanned a Superman figure (which was probably the black suited figure in their system as "Superman regenerated" or something like that)

That's the name for the Black Superman with no cape and silver "S".

 

The way Walmart's system works is all of the UPC's for a line, such as DCUC have one master SKU that is used for inventory purposes. That's why they can't tell you what series they have by looking at the system, just the number of DCUC total. In the computer, they are all the same. To make the shelf labels, they just grab the first one in the case, scan it and generate the label. To the computer it's all the same. All the UPC's are cross referenced as one item.

 

So that is still the DCUC figures, just the figure they scanned to make the tag was the Regeneration Superman, not a new line.
