The superheroes are coming

"United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment, Inc. announced today a partnership that will bring Marvel's full library of Super Heroes - including Spider-Man, Iron Man, The X-Men, Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer - to Dubai for a major new theme park destination being developed by AAG. The development is in line with the vision set by HH Shk. Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, through his innovative entertainment and hospitality driven expansion projects for Dubai and the UAE." Read more here.
Since it will be the first theme park of its kind, just imagine how many comic superhero fans and not from all the corners of the world will come here in the future just to try them Hulk-roller-coasters, Spiderman-roulette, X-men-carousels or whatever bizarre ride they can come up with.

Surprised no one ever thought of this before--or planned it--before. Disney turned animation into a theme park 50 years ago. Only now is it about to happen again--this time in Dubai! It sure beats bringing in tourists with casinos.
