The Sibling bond is a complex one! Growing up under the same roof, siblings generally spend more time together during childhood than they do with their parents. As a result unique relationship develop that are influenced by things such as birth order, personality and parental treatment. No matter how much love is shared between the children, there is bound to be a period of time when they don’t get along resulting in Sibling rivalry. Sibling rivalry is a competition or jealousy that results between two children whether they are blood related or not. In many families, sibling rivalry is normal and even healthy, as it teaches the children how to deal with these feelings and communication. Unfortunately if you are THOR and your sibling rivalry is with LOKI, it could result in total destruction of the world.

Last night, I surprised my boys with tickets to the Marvel Universe LIVE in Toronto. They have always shown a fascination with superheros and enjoy watching them on cartoons, reading comic books and even playing with the action figures. It wasn’t until we walked past miniature Spider-mans, Thors, and Wolverines (aka kids dressed in costumes) that they realized what they were about to see. They have seen many live action shows in the past, but I don’t think the realized the true treat they were in for!
From the first bang of Thor’s hammer to the suspenseful fight at the grand finale, my boys were in awe. They sat glued to their chairs the whole time, occasionally commenting “Hey Mom did you see that!”. Amazed by the lights, costumes and motorcycle stunts, the performance was simply captivating.
The show begins with Thor destroying the cosmic cube. The cosmic cube is a life force of power that turns even the good superheros bad. Unfortunately, Thor’s brother, Loki found a piece of the cosmic cube and attempts to regrow it using the powers from three captive Xmen. Marvel Super Heroes including Spider-Man and The Avengers (Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk and more) gather to form a plan to stop Loki and other evil villains from taking over the world. They discover the cosmic cube was divided into 3 parts and if they put them back together they can save Earth. The Avengers break off into three teams to hunt down the cube. Team 1: Captain Marvel, Iron Man, and Falcon Team 2: Captain America, Black Widow, and Hawk Eye Team 3: Thor and Spider-man. Each story is showcased a dramatic battle between these superheros and the known villains. With amazing displays of athletic ability, awesome motorbike stunts and outstanding special effects, the show appealed to children of ever age.
Here’s a sneak peek at what we saw:
Our favourite battle was between Spiderman/Thor with Rhino, Black Cat, Lizard, Dr. Oct, and the Green Goblin. The set was amazing! They recreated the Statue of Liberty’s head to provide two separate battle scenes. With the use of lighting and sound effects, you could feel the power of Thor’s lightening as he struct down the bad guys. Meanwhile, the scene would shift to Spider-man fighting Green Goblin outside the statue. With life like spiderwebs, amazing acrobatic skills and Green Goblins hover craft, it was a terrifying air battle that had you on the edge of your seat.
I absolutely loved the ending! A huge dramatic battle scene between all the superheros and villains followed and the much anticipated transformation of a gigantic Hulk. Fire whips, smoke, explosions and more ensured that the show finished with a bang! My boys truly enjoyed this performance and they have already asked when the show would be returning! If you have never seen a Marvels Universe Live performance, I highly recommend you make it a family affair!
