SEATTLE – Marvel’s super heroes are assembling in Seattle.

The Museum of Pop Culture is opening an exhibit exploring eight decades of heroes created by Marvel Entertainment.

The “Universe of Super Heroes” show begins Saturday and explores the nexus between the comic book pages, the television shows and the highly successful movies.

Among the more than 300 items on display are costumes and props from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies including Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming and others. Curators also obtained rare comics and artwork from private collectors.

The show’s run ends in January, 2019.
