Thor and Iron Man, two of Marvel Comics’ official superheroes, will be on hand Saturday and Sunday during Superheroes Weekend at the Strong National Museum of Play. An engaging display of comic books spanning nearly 50 years will also be on display. It was created by Alfred University.

Thor rumbles in with his trademark hammer in hand from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday. Iron Man rockets into the museum from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Weekend highlights include how-to-draw sessions with comic book artists, superhero training, and visits from PBS Kids' WordGirl and Wonder Red. Visitors are invited to come in costume.
