I have to admit that I don’t know much about Super Heroes. After all, I only have daughters. However, when Kacie saw the Marvel Super Heroes Magazine sitting on the counter she went crazy! Apparently, I have a Super Hero fan in my home after all!
Marvel Super Heroes Magazine invites families to bring home the “Mighty Marvel Universe!” Readers must get ready to join forces with all their favorite Avengers. Each issue features exciting comics, brain-teasing puzzles, cool activities and fun cutouts, plus, an amazing looking collectible poster.

We received the May/June 2012 issue and we were very impressed with the full-color cover. It showed images of 6 different Super Heroes and gave you an idea of what to expect inside. The thicker paper used for the front and back cover also doubles as a 2-page action scene pull-out poster. The index tells you where you can find all the fun contents.
The Marvel Super Heroes Magazine may not look very thick but it’s sure packed with fun. Here’s a sample of what we found inside our issue:
- 11-page comic story featuring Thor
- The Daily Bugle by Peter Parker
- Evil Infiltration – Heroes and villains may not always be who they seem to be. Using the clues, figure out who is real and who is an imposter.
- Crack the Code – Unscramble the letters in the words to find out what evil plans lurk. Time yourself for more of a challenge.
- Clip & Collect: Black Widow – Get all the 411 on a Super Hero.
- Mighty Marvel Fun – Clip and rearrange the Super Heroes to create new ones.
- Avengers: Super Team Profile
- And much more!
What we really liked about the Marvel Super Heroes Magazine is all the great information it provides about the characters. Before I read the magazine I had no idea who was who but now I know that Hawkeye’s real name is Clint Barton and can strike almost any target with any form of weapon. And even though he’s ranked low on durability he’s a master at fighting skills.
However, the best feature about this magazine is that every single page is fully colored! There was no skimping or corners cut when they published this magazine. All of the sharply detailed images are what really drew us into reading every single page.
So, if you have a boy between the ages of 8-10 (or girls, too, apparently) think about getting them a Marvel Super Heroes Magazine subscription. They retail at $4.99 each or $29.92 for 8 issues (25% off the cover price).
