Review: Marvel Universe Live

Last Thursday night the Santos family “assembled” (hee hee, I couldn’t help myself) along with the Avengers for the action packed opening night of the Marvel Universe LIVE! tour kicking off at IZOD center in New Jersey and enjoyed some yummy food and pre-show activities for the kids. SO MUCH FUN!!! Dahlia got to channel her inner “Black-Widow” as she threw on some boxing gloves and beat down a few “villains” , before showing off her archery skills.
We got a quick bite to eat, got into character for a family photo (my webs weren’t working…) and headed to our seats for the show.  My family are huge marvel fans so it was super cool seeing their faces as we watched so many of our favorite characters come to life and save the day right in front of us.
Here’s a brief description of the show which you can find in the “about” section on
Marvel Universe LIVE! will captivate audiences with an authentic and original story that brings more than 25 Marvel characters together on one epic quest. The story is framed around the battle over the Cosmic Cube, the source of ultimate power and one of the most feared and coveted treasures in the Marvel Universe, that has been shattered into pieces by the Mighty Thor in order to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. With the pieces scattered across the globe, Thor’s villainous brother Loki devises a scheme to clone its powers, inciting a threat that could not only decimate Earth but also obliterate the Universe.To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes must band together, including The Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor along with Spider-Man and Wolverine, must trek across the globe to retrieve the Cosmic Cube fragments and unite them. As the Super Heroes track the Cube, they will encounter some of their biggest adversaries including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Red Skull, Madame Hydra, Aldrich Killian, Electro and more, in the quest for the very same fragments. These foes have no problem teaming up if it gets them closer to their ultimate goal of world domination.”

This show is definitely fun for the WHOLE FAMILY! There were babies, toddlers, tweens and adults all captivated and kept on their toes. Marvel Universe LIVE! will be at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ until Monday August 10th before heading to the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY from August 13th-17th.  This BronxMama definitely recommends!
