Marvel Universe Live Review: An Action Packed Adventure for the Entire Family

Disclosure: I received tickets for my family to attend this show from Feld Entertainment. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are honest and 100% my own.

Marvel fans assemble! Marvel Universe Live is in Kansas City for the next 2 days and if you or anyone in your family is a superhero fan, this show is a MUST SEE!

All of your favorite Marvel heroes join together in this amazing show for 2 hours of non stop action. When we first heard about the show, I wasn't sure if Grace would be interested. Luckily she saw Black Widow (her favorite super hero) in the preview and happily agreed to go. This was important since the show actually fell on her birthday! So after a busy day of birthday activities, we dressed the kids up in their costumes, Captain America for Connor and a recently ordered Black Widow costume for Grace and headed to the Sprint Center.
I couldn't let her go to the show on her birthday without a fun costume!
We were lucky enough to be very close to the front but trust me there is no bad seat for this show. The show is staged wonderfully to use the whole arena floor and there is constant action from all angles.
Connor had fallen asleep in the car before we arrived so he was a little stoic through the first act but he assured me he was having fun.

The show started with a gathering of all of the famous superheroes and then broke each scene into smaller groups versus some of the more famous villains. Connor loves Captain America and Grace loves Black Widow so they both said their favorite parts were the motorcycle scenes featuring the two heroes. I wasn't expecting all of the daring motorcycle tricks throughout the show and they were extremely fun to watch.

My favorite part of the entire show was watching Spider Man hang upside down from a moving platform. The special effects in this show are non stop and truly amazing. The Statue of Liberty set was extremely impressive as it would become see through for parts to allow the audience to see fighting inside and then change back to the Statue of Liberty. It was very cool to see how they used projections against the back wall to set all of the scenes.

The scenes were a good length for my little ones' attention span and their eyes were glued to the constant action. After a short admission, the plot culminated with a final huge fight scene featuring Connor's very favorite superhero ever, the Hulk. His only complaint about the whole show was that Hulk was only in the show for a few minutes!

Spoiler alert, the Avengers win the day and Loki is defeated leaving the crowd cheering.

With motorcycle stunts, flying heroes, fire, pyrotechnics and more, this show is an adventure your family will not want to miss. I was a bit concerned that it might be a little scary for my 3 year old but he was smiling and had a great time. It's a very family friendly show and everyone around us seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Grace was very happy that the show featured more than just one female hero and although none were as prominent as Black Widow, I appreciated the addition of Captain Marvel and Storm. Connor is looking over my shoulder as I'm writing this begging to go see the show again and Grace told me I should write "It's a super cool show because of Black Widow, everyone should go."
