Spider-Man Unveiled in Hong Kong
Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created the superhero Spider Man in 1962, and has since appeared in a myriad of comic books, cartoons, television shows, movies, video games and musicals. He is part of the Avengers, an all-star line-up of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and is recognized as one of the most intelligent fictional characters.
Kelly Mak, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong said, “Spider-Man is the very first superhero wax figure introduced to the attraction. We believe this will add to the fun our guests experience by meeting famous people, action heroes and cartoon characters while they embark on the star-studded journey here.”
“We are thrilled to bring Spider-Man out from the big screen to life so that his legions of fans here can enjoy a close personal encounter with their hero, while he does what he does best,” added Ms. Mak.
Grasshopper said, “We are really excited to officiate the launch of the Spider-Man wax figure. Come join us on an heroic adventure at the attraction.”
Spider-Man’s wax figure will be permanently displayed in the World Premiere zone at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.
