Marvel’s Marvelous Events for February 22nd – 28th
Are you disappointed that you still can’t train to be a Super Hero at Avenger’s Campus at the Disney Parks and Resorts? At Marvel Blog, we have AN EPIC CASE OF THE MONDAYS, and thought it would be nice of us to offer some enjoyable at home entertainment and events to hold you over until the park’s reopen – hopefully, soon…
If you are still stuck inside – because of the national-level quarantine-style staycation – then check out these marvelous virtual events celebrating Marvel Comics and entertainment from around the inter-webs.
