Marvel Universe Live – Age of Heroes: Review

Wow! If you want a great outing for your super hero fans, Marvel Universe Live! Age of Heroes is it. I had no idea what to expect going in, but I knew I had two little boys with me who love super heroes. I’m a little more spotty in super knowledge and, apparently, I lean more toward DC Comics with the little knowledge I have. Were I to do it again, I would have studied a bit for this date, but it didn’t really matter. I caught on quick enough and the story was entertaining without background knowledge.
