If you're anything like me - and the above reads like a snippet from your own autobiography - then you'll be as excited as I am to hear about an exhibition that is soon to open at Rochester, New York's Strong National Museum of Play on October 17th. The American Comic Book Heroes: The Battle of Good vs. Evil is the celebration of 70 years worth of superhero action, featuring life-size statues of all my old faves - Spider-man, Superman, Batman, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.
Every kid's dream - and probably a lot of adults' as well - the museum is also offering to enrol visitors in Super Powers School where, by entering a mirrored booth (much like Superman's telephone box, I imagine), you can magically assume a new identity, complete with cape and costume. By going through interactive stations, you can pick up powers like super strength, memory, balance, flight and reflexes. Roll on, October 17th - all my childhood dreams are about to come true!
If, however, you like cartoons but comics just don't work for you, backpack to Cornwall - also in New York - where the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum is offering you the chance to track a wily coyote (although probably not the one in the kid's TV show).
