Looking for a vacation adventure of epic proportion? Then head to Las Vegas and watch the mightiest superheroes and the dangerously devious super villains take part in an epic battle over the Cosmic Cube—the most revered and feared treasure in the universe. It’s a classic clash between good and evil and it all unfolds at Marvel Universe LIVE! during a big city escape with your family.
Here’s the backstory: Mighty Thor has smashed the Cosmic Cube into tiny fragments to prevent it from being found by those who would use its powers to inflict harm and gain total domination. Unfortunately, parts of the destroyed Cube are now strewn across the globe, and Loki, Thor’s diabolical brother, wants them in order to clone its powers. If he succeeds, the results would be devastating, unleashing a threat that could potentially annihilate earth and eradicate the universe.
To vanquish Loki, Marvel’s greatest super heroes, including The Avengers, must join forces in a global quest to retrieve the pieces of the Cosmic Cube. Standing in their way will be villainous foes that choose to oppose them. These evildoers will stop at nothing, including working together, to be the first group to find all the fragments.
Will it be the superheroes or the super villains who piece together the Cube? Find out during your Las Vegas getaway.
