Walk through the New York City of Superman, Spiderman, Batman and the Fantastic Four. Comic books and superheroes were invented in New York in the
1930s and the city continues to cast its influence over the genre to this very
day. In the DC Universe, NYC is the inspiration for both Batman’s Gotham
City and Superman’s Metropolis. In the Marvel Universe, characters such as
Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four inhabit the ‘real’ NYC.
On this 1.5 hour walking tour you will see:
• The headquarters of Marvel
The former offices of Bob Kane (creator of Batman) & Will Eisner (creator of
The Spirit). • The ‘real’ location of the Fantastic Four’s fictitious Baxter
Building. • The hidden bar where comic book artists have been drawing
superhero cartoons on the walls since the 1960's. • The buildings used as the Daily Bugle and the Daily Planet. •
The location where Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, "With great power comes great
responsibility" (Spider-Man). • The Green Goblin’s Gothic Manhattan mansion
(Spider-Man). • The United Nations Headquarters where Batman and Robin saved
the Security Council from the "fearsome foursome" of Joker, Penguin, Riddler and
Catwoman (Batman: The Movie). • The apartments of Lernore Lemmon (suspected
of killing George "Superman" Reeves ) and across the street Kirk Allan (the
first Superman 1948) - no they did not know each other.
And much, much
