Finally, a map of New York City for the nerd set. Who needs Metropolis or Asgard when geek heaven is right here in New York? We turned to our favorite comic books and movies to find where momentous fictional events happened in the city, from Spider-Man’s battle with the Green Goblin on the Queensboro Bridge to X-Men’s landmark gay marriage in Central Park. Plus, find out where to play games and find the coolest comics in real life.
