Marvel Universe Live at Landers Center 

And there came a day unlike any other (except for the last time Marvel Universe Live came to town), when Earth's mightiest heroes were united to perform an arena-sized show featuring motorcycle stunts, massive CGI projections, explosions, and even more explosions. On that day, the Avengers of Marvel Universe Live! were born. The massive touring show coming to the Landers Center, has often combined Marvel's trademark characters in ways that ownership rights and studio wrangling has made impossible in the cinematic universe. It pairs Avengers with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Fist, and Black Panther, and it pits this superhero supergroup against classic villains the Lizard, the Black Cat, all the forces of Hydra, and sometimes gravity.

The latest iteration of Marvel Universe Live! is a fast-paced and action-packed race against time to keep the sorcerer supreme, Dr. Strange's mystical Wand of Watoomb from falling into the hands of Norse God of mischief, Loki, who also died in Infinity War. Clearly, this stuff all happens outside of continuity.

Marvel Universe Live! is a frenetic endeavor mixing extreme gymnastics, motorcycle stunt riding, web-swinging, pyrotechnics, and non-stop fight choreography. Just how big is it? Since Mighty Heimdall died in Avengers: Infinity War, and there's nobody available to open the Bifrost bridge for the purpose of magical teleportation, it takes 30 trucks to move the the high tech stage and gear from town to town.

A Helicarrier or Quinjet would probably make transportation easier, but sadly they don't yet exist in the real world.

Marvel Universe Live at The Landers Center, December 28th-30th. Tickets start at $20.
