We all have our fantasies of meeting our favorite Superheroes in real life. I for one fantisies daily about a chance encounter with Spiderman’s buxom burglar The Black Cat. As well as the Fantasic Four’s Invisible Woman. Err, is there something wrong with me if I fantasize about her while she’s invisible? I digress. Sadly, much like meeting real life  girls this is never gonna happen. So, what is a nerd, with unrealistic ideas of meeting their favorite superhero to do? Well, check out the new Marvel superheros exhibit opening up at famous Madame Tussauds wax museum in London, that’s what.

Opening up this summer, here you can gawk at life size wax replicas of Iron Man, Captain America, Spiderman and Wolverine. Sadly, no super heroines seem to be on the roster. Besides being able to stare, for hours, at your favorite Marvel flagship heroes there is more to the exhibit. “Marvel Super Heroes 4D“, as the exhibit is named, lets you stroll through a superhero penthouse (hehe penthouse, I love that mag)  and enter the headquarters of S.H.I.E.L.D, the Hall of Heroes and Tony Stark’s workroom.

The highlight of Marvel Super Heroes 4D is a special 360º eight minute animated 3D  CG animated feature, complete with high impact special effects, such as air, water and vibrating seats to make the experience a truly 4D affair. Screened in Madame Tussaud’s famous domed auditorium the story unites a  crack team of super heroes including Hulk, Spider-Man and Captain America in a battle against Doctor Doom, one of Marvel’s most villainous baddies in an all new adventure.

Eh, the whole thing sounds a bit silly. I guess it’s a good thing for the kiddies. Though, the wax statues are pretty damn awesome. Might be worth checking out. Now, if you will excuse me I’m gonna go back to aimless air humping. My pecker is bound to hit that elusive Sue Storm eventually ( I have problems, please help).
