Agana Center Celebrates Superheroes

This may be the year of the superhero. Marvel finally brought together its big name heroes in The Avengers. Then there was Spider-man’s new beginning in The Amazing Spider-Man. Finally, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has reached its stunning conclusion.

Guam’s Agana Shopping Center got in on the superhero fun last weekend with its Super Heroes Fest. It celebrated all things great and geeky, with video game demoes, a superhero band and a comic art competition.

Speaking with Guam Pacific Daily News, Charles McJohn, the center’s marketing manager, said, “We wanted to create a family-friendly atmosphere where people can dress up and show their inner geek.”

The center put comic artists to the test in its Super Art Fight. You know the age-old question of who would win in a fight? You know, Batman vs. Superman? Well the artists needed to make their own calls, drawing a counter to each theme the judges offered.

Shoppers who showed up dressed as their favorite heroes got a special treat: discounts at retailers throughout the center, and a chance to win big prizes in the costume contest. The winner of the contest received a costumed photo shoot with an expert cosplay photographer.
