Families heading to a Leeds museum this week were guaranteed a super day out.

The Royal Armouries was invaded by a host of classic superheroes as part of the three-day POW event – a soar away celebration of comic book favourites which continues tomorrow. (Thurs)

Fans were able to meet some of the world’s most famous action heroes, including Batman, Iron Man, Captain America and Judge Dredd, along with Star Wars Jedis and Storm Troopers.

They were treated to breath-taking demonstrations such as Batman taking on wise-cracking Marvel Comics anti-hero Deadpool in a thrilling display of one-to-one combat.

And one of the genre’s most awe-inspiring vehicles – the Batmobile – also roared into the exhibition.

Visitor experience officer Lisa Power said: “The museum was packed with families and children who all loved seeing their favourite superheroes.

“Everyone seemed to be having a brilliant time and we had some great feedback.”
