Marvel Universe Live New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 20 2015

If you're a six-year-old in an Iron Man costume, or happen to be holding one on your lap, this epic battle between good and evil featuring more than 25 Marvel comic book heroes and villains is a dream come true. It's about collaboration and teamwork, with a Cain-and- Abel-like feud between mighty Thor and his evil brother Loki. Thor smashes the dangerous Cosmic Cube to pieces so it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, but then Loki tries to clone its powers in a quest for world domination. Lucky for Thor, his superhero friends (Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Wolverine, etc) fly in— literally—to help save the day. Stunts run the gamut from teleportation to motorcycle tricks to Bruce Banner bursting at the seams as the Incredible Hulk (a crowd favorite). —Marissa Oberlander
