    What to Expect
    The Superhero Tour of New York shows you firsthand the prime hangouts of radioactive latex loving spider heroes, vigilante bat-people and delves deep into the benefits of wearing spandex briefs... Did you know comic books and superheroes were invented in New York in the 1930s?! The city continues to cast its influence over the genre to this day in both comics and films.
