*Disclosure: I have an ongoing relationship with Feld Entertainment and received complimentary show tickets in exchange for this review. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.
Last night, my parents and I headed to the Palace of Auburn Hills to check out the new (to this area) show, Marvel Universe LIVE. The videos I had seen online for the show looked great, but I wasn't sure what to expect as this was my first time attending. The result? Like watching a live Avengers movie - and super fun!
All your favorite Marvel characters are here, and working together in a giant plot to stop Loki - the Avengers (Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, etc.) plus Spider-Man and some of the X-Men characters too (Storm, Wolverine, etc.). It was a little strange to see them all together, since normally in the movies they're separate, but they're all part of the Marvel universe.

The pyrotechnics in this show were fantastic! I wasn't expecting them to be so dramatic and omni-present, but they really added a lot to the show. I think my favorite character was actually the Hulk, who shows up near the end, although regretfully I didn't take any pictures (I think by that time I was so enthralled in the show that I forgot!).

The show is still ongoing this weekend, today and tomorrow!
Show times are:
- TODAY (9/26) - 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm
- TOMORROW (9/27) - 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm
You can buy tickets here at Ticketmaster, as well as at the Palace box office. Tickets range from $25-75 and childrens tickets (up to age 12) are $20.
For those that went last night, what did you think of the show? For those that are thinking of going - what character would you look forward to seeing the most?
