The Superhero Walking Tour of New York

The News Building, New York City

New York City has been inspirational in the development of many well-known superheroes, like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. This walking tour visits the origins of these legendary superheroes, bringing the comics and films to life while exploring the real-life Gotham City and Metropolis.

The tour begins, appropriately, at JHU Comic Books, New York City’s premier comic book shop. Comic books and superheroes were invented in New York in the 1930s, and New York is the inspiration for both Gotham City and Metropolis in DC comics. And Spider-Man, the Avengers, Ironman and the Fantastic Four inhabit the real New York in Marvel comics.

See the battleground where the Avengers fight for humanity on the streets of New York City. Visit the real location of the Fantastic Four’s fictitious Baxter Building. And go to the Daily Bugle, aka the Flatiron Building, from Spider-Man.

Recognize Spider-Man’s perch when he’s using his spider sense? That’s the Chrysler Building, also a stop on this tour. Plus, the Empire State Building has been featured in countless superhero adventures. Find out which ones and visit the iconic landmark. Also find out which superheroes have battled at Grand Central Terminal. Step inside Clark Kent’s workplace, The Daily Planet. And visit the New York Public Library, where Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

As a bonus, visit Overlook, a classic American bar where comic book artists have been drawing superhero cartoons on the walls since the 1960s. See it all on this ultimate superhero tour of New York City.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

The tour was great! We had a wonderful time learning the history behind the comics, seeing the sites of some of the best movies to hit the big screen. He had my husband pretend to audition for the role of Superman on the radio to show us how the actor that did it had to make the audience visualize the character through the radio. We only wish we had done this when it was a little warmer. Lots o walking and very interesting information. My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. We want to do it again.

My mom brought this for my fiance while we were celebrating his 30th in NYC. When we first got to the meeting point we didn't know what to expect. There were two families and another couple with us on the tour. Paul the tour guide was brilliant he has so many stories and you can ask him anything while he takes you around the city. There's not too much walking involved and there are some great photo opportunities. I would recommend this for anyone who loves superheroes!

Entertaining, full of information, The tour guide was also very concerned with our safety, while walking through the city and took steps to ensure our safety, while walking through the city. Our guide was also very personable and funny! Our son and his best friend thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

our guide Paul was very knowledgeable about all the superheroes. His stories about the making of the movies and some of the secrets behind the making of the movies and the actors was really interesting!!!! It was great to see where the movies were filmed and also go into some of the buildings too. The bar at the end had wonderful drawings and we all ended up with a personalised drawing of a superhero by Paul a cartoonist. The group was small so that was a bonus too. My daughter and I thoroughly recommend the tour if you are a superhero fan.
