“The shield is probably the most iconic and recognizable prop, so to me, not just because we have it but if I could choose any Marvel prop I think I would pick the shield,” he said. “It’s not only a prop from one of the Marvel movies, it’s probably the greatest prop.”
The museum will be hosting a Marvel 75th anniversary celebration on May 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
At that event patrons can hold the autographed Captain America shield and get a picture with it for a $5 minimum donation. The donations, Stewart said, will go to restoring and preserving the museum’s Captain America number one comic book.
The museum is available for tours by appointment by calling 574-522-1187. For more information on the Hall of Heroes visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hall-of-Heroes-Super-Hero-Museum/54673733796.
