Get your superhero fix IRL at this huge Marvel superhero exhibition
Gearing up for Avengers: Infinity War? You can get your superhero fix IRL at a world-class Avengers exhibition in Melbourne.
Marvel's Avengers STATION is an immersive experience that integrates science and NASA-developed technology with replica movie props. Basically, you’ll be diving headfirst into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the shared comic book universe that encompasses all your favourite jacked-up superheroes: Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor Ant Man, Black Panther and more.
The Avengers assemble (!) at Birrarung Marr behind Federation Square in a purpose-built 2500m2 structure. Here you can get your hands on an extensive range of replica Avengers props, including Captain America’s uniform and shield, Iron Man’s MK 45 suit, the Hulkbuster suit (which is an Iron Man suit designed to take down the Incredible Hulk) and Thor’s famous hammer.
Having toured New York, Seoul, Paris and Las Vegas, Marvel's Avengers STATION (an acronym for Science, Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) lets visitors simulate recruitment as if they were training as agents of SHIELD. The exhibition will feature a dose of science and technology provided by NASA to amplify the scientific themes that are central to Marvel's storytelling, all in an effort to encourage STEM pathways for high school students.
