Perhaps one of the most popular and recognizable “characters” in Marvel Comics is New York City itself. When comics legend Stan Lee decided that Marvel Super Heroes like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four would work and play on the real-life streets of New York, he made it thrillingly easy for readers to imagine their favorite crimefighters just around the corner. Now, armed with this action-packed guidebook, Marvel fans can take a fun-filled tour of the Big Apple, visiting some of the most famous and obscure locations from Marvel’s long, rich history:
– The stately uptown museum that inspired the Avengers Mansion
– The Greenwich Village street that is home to Dr. Strange’s Sanctum Santorum
– The bridge where Spider-Man tried – and failed – to save his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy
– The site of the X-Men’s first battle against Dark Phoenix
From the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty to Times Square, you’ll get blow-by-blow descriptions of Marvel’s greatest adventures, and the lowdown on Marvel landmarks both real and imagined. Whether you’re a native New Yorker, a thrill-seeking tourist, or a curious armchair traveler, with this one-of-a-kind guide you can explore the city that never sleeps and the comics that live forever.
