Head to the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle for the Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes exhibit, running until Jan. 6, 2019. (Not in Seattle? The exhibit will travel, but its schedule is not yet known.) The 10,000-square-foot, two-level exhibition chronicles nearly eight decades of Marvel history.
The exhibit begins with a recreation of an old-fashioned newsstand, the first place many Americans discovered comics. As headlines of famous events such as the moon landing light up on a screen, related comic books with that same theme are also shown.
The exhibit includes vintage photos from the early days of comics, including a brief affair with 3D.
The Fantastic Four were concerned about the Commies back in the day.
From the start, Captain America wasn't afraid to take on America's enemies.

The costume and panther gauntlets wore by Shuri (Letitia Wright) in Black Panther are on display next to Boseman and Gurira's costumes.

Can you guess whose scary image hides behind this wall? Hint: Nicolas Cage would know.
At the end of the exhibit, visitors can vote for their favorite Marvel character (or at least from the selection presented in the machine). That character then shows up on a television set in a nearby display case to thank you for your vote.
