Fans of the wildly successful Avengers movie franchise can now live out their vigilante dreams too. Following successful runs in New York, Seoul, Paris and Las Vegas, the MARVEL’S AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D Exhibition finally makes its way to Singapore.
After checking it out at the Singapore Science Centre, Arman Shah lists five things that fellow self-proclaimed geeks can look forward to at this experiential exhibition.
Probationary agent training
Bid a temporary farewell to civilian life and prepare to undergo training as a recruit before becoming an official S.H.I.E.L.D agent. You’ll be handed a communications device (alternatively, you can download the app on your mobile phone) through which Agent Maria Hill will brief you on your mission and offer access and insight into every exhibit.
High Performance Test Lab
Think you can handle the Super Soldier programme that Steve Rogers underwent to become the world’s first Avenger? Put your physical prowess and mental sharpness to the test at the High Performance Test Lab. Undergo the strength and cognitive reflex assessments to prove that you’re just as fit and mentally acute as Captain America.
What goes on in the mind of the Hulk to trigger his transformation? How is the Bifröst Bridge able to transport Thor from Asgard to Earth? What are the scientific properties of vibranium that’s used to make Captain America’s shield? Get your answers from the touchscreen panels that take superhero trivia to a whole other level of geeky-cool.
Superhero costumes and weaponry
Your obsession with superhero costumes doesn’t have to end just because Halloween is over. An impressive collection of costumes and weaponry belonging to both superheroes and villains are on display behind well-polished glass panels. Admire the sleekness of Black Widow’s skintight leather suit and feel dwarfed by the Hulkbuster that stands over 3m tall.
Augmented reality games
Let’s face it – we all want to know what it’s like to don Tony Clark’s crime-busting suit. At the Iron Man Advanced Engineering Bay, you can put on the suit in an augmented reality setting and actually shoot out blasters from your hands! During the final stage of your recruit training, you can also team up with fellow visitors in the Game Room to battle villains before you officially become a S.H.I.E.L.D agent. Too fun, too cool.
