Attire should be comfortable and appropriate for the occasion. Is the arena handicap accessible? The first act is a sort of snooze of exposition with some really cool effects, like a battle with a bunch of aliens on cars that seem to drive themselves around the arena and heroes flying on to the stage on wires.
There are lots of motorcycle tricks and more than a few well-timed explosions that will scare the bejesus out of all the parents twiddling on their phones. After a minute intermission, the second act picks up considerably, with four large battles between groups of heroes and a series of villains in increasingly laughable costumes.
There are a lot more motorcycles jumping around on sets that are put up and taken down in between scenes while the audience is distracted by videos played against the ever-transforming back wall of the stage.
The climax is a battle between about a dozen heroes and a couple of dozen villains and henchmen where people fly around the stage on various hovercraft, careen about on motorcycles, and Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk, the only effect that is actually very cool and the one that got the biggest cheer from all the kids in attendance. This combining of the two mythologies will probably anger the hardcore comic book nerds who go to see the show.
And for those conspiracy theorists who think Marvel is trying to tank the X-Men franchiseall the mutants but Wolverine do get short shrift. Of course the show is cheesy. The costumes for the villains are oversized and cartoons, as are the fighting styles of everyone on the stage.
As adults we may not be able to suspend our disbelief, but it seems like the kids were able to. But the kids love Marvel Live.
