With the huge success of The Avengers and the Batman trilogy, the return of the Amazing Spider-Man and Superman movies, and Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine making the A-list to name but a few, superheroes have never been so popular. We won't talk about the Fantastic Four movie though.
But who is the best?

★★★★ "Such a fun and entertaining night. There are games in between rounds and prizes to be won. Even if you know nothing about superheroes, as I did, it is immensely funny to watch people pull “facts” out of their behind and make them sound possibly factual. A Super fun night!" (Clothesline)
