COLUMBUS, OH – COSI visitors will join forces with members of DC’s Justice League when they arrive in Columbus this winter.

Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman need YOU to help them battle crime and fight for justice in DC SUPER HEROES: Discover Your Superpowers. In this exhibit, at COSI from February 8 – May 25, 2020, guests can save the city, vie with villains, and work as a team to restore order across the DC universe. In this immersive DC environment, you’ll explore the Hall of Justice, investigate robberies in Gotham City hone your Super Hero skills in the S.T.A.R. Labs, and more. Along the way you’ll also meet DC Super Heroes Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Supergirl, and Batgirl.

“This exhibit is a great way to connect science and DC Super Heroes as guests learn more about teamwork and problem-solving through the lens of well-loved and well-known characters,” said Dr. Frederic Bertley, President and CEO of COSI. “Teamwork and problem-solving are key skill sets in STEM careers of all types and this exhibit is a fantastic way to learn and develop new skills.”

In the exhibition, brave recruits will be called on by members of the Justice League to make the world a safer place by battling DC Super-Villains in the fictional, crime-infested city through activities such as:

• A quiz where everyone can learn which DC Super Hero they most resemble. • A crisis-scanner game to see what DC Super-Villains may be causing trouble in the streets and the best DC Super Hero to stop them. • Help Batman in Gotham City fight off The Joker who has sabotaged the Bat-Signal. • Work with Wonder Woman to rescue artifacts that The Cheetah stole from the Museum of Ancient History. • Join super hero training to see if you’ve got what it takes to protect the city. • Find Black Manta’s secret base and help protect the city’s ocean habitats.

DC stories and characters have inspired generations of kids and grownups to be more like DC Super Heroes in real life. What kind of super hero will you be?
