Normally, the superheroes of New York stay hidden until it's time to fight crime. Discover where they hang out on this guided tour, sure to delight any comic book lover.
Always alert, hiding behind their secret identities: superheroes exist, and they live in New York City. Grab your cape, and meet at the Midtown Comics in Times Square to start your guided tour through the city in search of those extraordinary men and women who, with their superpowers, make the planet a better place - or at least they do in comic books and films anyway!
Climb aboard your customised tour bus and get ready for your comic-book crazy guide to show you all the most iconic New York sights from the Marvel and DC universes. Your first stop: the lobby of the Daily News building, the inspiration for Clark Kent's place of work, the Daily Planet newspaper.
Continue down 42nd Street and Madison Avenue, where the fictional Baxter Building, the headquarters of the Fantastic Four, is located. Heading down Fifth Avenue, you'll reach the iconic Flatiron, a building scaled on numerous occasions by your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman.
Your next stop will be in front of the JP Morgan building. Superhero film fans will recognise the Gotham Stock Exchange, the bank where Batman fights his nemesis Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
Having enjoyed many more superhero haunts in the City That Never Sleeps, you'll finish your tour at Battery Park, admiring the views of the famous Statue of Liberty, rescued countless times by the heroes of Marvel and DC. From here, you can catch the ferry to go and visit Lady Liberty herself (not included), or enjoy the rest of your day on Manhattan, having discovered that, like Bowie said, ‘We can be heroes, just for one day’.
In an effort to stay current, the local tour provider regularly updates this tour with new locations so you can visit the most popular superhero sights in New York. They therefore do not guarantee the inclusion of every location mentioned here. If you have a particular interest in locations in a specific TV show or movie, let your guide know so they can do their best to accommodate your request.
