Via tekeningen, filmfragmenten en requisieten wordt de oorsprong in de miljoenenmetropool belicht van figuren als Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Spider-Man en Iron Man. "Comics hebben een grote culturele uitstraling, maar weinigen onthouden dat zij hun wortels hebben in New York", zei curator Louise Mirrer.

Hoogtepunt van de expositie is een originele Batmobile, het voertuig waarmee Batman in zijn films de krachten van het kwade in Gotham City bestrijdt. Tot eind februari blijven de superlui in het museum. (Belga)
