Ever since its beginning in comics way back in 1939, Marvel has continually reinvented itself and the content it offers, mesmerizing audiences with entertainment reflecting contemporary society and events. Recent examples include a string of movie hits like The Avengers and Iron Man that are contributing to Marvel’s rapidly burgeoning popularity in Japan.
 Showcasing some 200 rarely seen items, the MARVEL Age of Heroes Exhibition zooms in on Marvel, past and present, and the Marvel worldview in all its variety and detail. Background materials, costumes, and props never seen before in Japan are on display along with exhibits highlighting popular Marvel characters and titles like The Avengers and Spider-Man. And the exhibition highlights how Marvel titles affect popular culture and people by going beyond just the heroics of their stars to depict them as real people—individuals coping with their own issues and internal struggles who grow as human beings as they fight for the things they believe in.
 The exhibition space approaches Marvel’s history and unravels the mystery of its ability to deliver audience-riveting titles from five perspectives: History (the history of Marvel), Heroes (how Marvel depicts its heroes), Culture (the many popular phenomenon Marvel has spawned), Now (Marvel today), and Art (Marvel and its artists).
