All your favourite Marvel characters including Thor, Ironman, Spiderman, the Black Widow, The Hulk, The X-Men, Captain America and slew of others are brought to life by a cast that are part athlete, part actor, part stuntman, part aerial artist and part entertainer, all to do battle against the evil Loki, who is plotting to take over the world.

Occupying a stage that take up a full third of the arena, the show features aerial acts, jeep and motorcycle chases, just the expected amount of the good guys fighting the bad and a little bit of fireworks and pyrotechnics thrown in for good measure.
