A Mighty Marvel Kind of Universe

They seem to be everywhere, these incredible denizens of the Marvel Universe. It's practically impossible to turn on the TV or go to the local movie theater without seeing them on a screen, big or small. So if your idea of star-studded entertainment is watching these costumed crusaders, clad in capes and spandex, performing their heroics in closer proximity, you're in luck. Marvel Universe Live! is coming to the AmericanAirlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) at 7 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The promoters promise fans an evening of extraordinary entertainment and excitement as our heroes battle their archenemies in an attempt to save the galaxy. Of course, the special effects we witness in the cinema raises the bar considerably. Word has it, however, that the pyrotechnics, high-tech high jinks, martial arts, and aerial displays will rival anything we’ve seen on the screen. Heck, we’re pleased enough that Spider-Man, the Avengers, Iron Man, and the Hulk will grace us with their awesome presence. Let’s hope you can distinguish between the stars of the show and the costumed wannabes who’ll also be in attendance. Tickets cost $20 to $214.10. Visit ticketmaster.com.
Fri., Nov. 28, 7 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 29, 11 a.m., 3 & 7 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 30, 11 a.m., 3 & 7 p.m., 2014
