International superhero day to be celebrated at Toy & Action Figure Museum
Kevin Stark wants to be surrounded by a sea of original superheroes.
As curator of the Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, Stark is helping to spearhead what the museum is calling “International Superhero Day.”
“I just want to see a town full of superheroes walking the streets like everyday citizens,” Stark said, recalling how in the 1960s “Batman” series, no one seemed surprised by Batman and Robin interacting with the city.
The museum is trying to set a world record for the most people in original superhero costumes in one place on Aug. 4.
Stark said someplace like Comic-Con International in San Diego of course has thousands of people in costume, but most of those costumes are based on existing characters. Stark wants to see creativity unleashed in this record-breaking attempt, as attendees will create their own characters, costumes and origins.
“I’m much more interested in that than having 100 Batmans show up or 1,000 Supermans. I want to see what people would come up with if they had a chance to be a superhero,” Stark said.
