Superheros of all types will be celebrated at The University of New Mexico's first-ever Superhero Day on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Students are encouraged to cosplay and jump into the world of supers — whether it is Marvel and DC to the Incredibles and Captain Underpants. The celebrations run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Student Union Building Atrium. Refreshments will be provided.

Students are encouraged to dress up and cosplay as their favorite superhero because there will be a costume/cosplay competition at 12:30 with prizes for the winners. Additional activities include a game of Geeks Who Drink Superhero Trivia Contest, photobooths, superhero crafts, and a special appearance from some of your favorite comic characters — specialty of Albuquerque Comic Crusaders will be on hand dressed up as some of your favorite comic characters.
