The exhibition starts with Superman, with its initial comic strips framed on the walls with a large screen showing its first ever animated cartoons. Three suits are on display, one worn by Clark Kent as the journalist, and the other two by Clark Kent as Superman. All three of the suits were actually worn by actor Christopher Reeves, whose portrayal of the character from 1978 to 1987, is considered to be the best of all times. The Superman costumes worn by Henry Cavill in the films Man of Steel (2013) and Batman Vs Superman: The Dawn of Justice (2016) including Justice League (2017) are also on display.

Numerous other DC Comics characters including Green Lantern, The Flash and Suicide Squad are also on display. There is a whole gallery dedicated to only the comic strips and graphic novels consisting of nearly all the DC Superheroes and Enemies created. It is a very eye opening exhibition, as all the costumes and props are originals, worn and used by actual actors in their respected characters and films. It’s just that no one can touch them because there is a glass casing around them.

DC Exhibition: Dawn of Super Heroes opens at the O2, London, 23 February and runs until 9th September 2018. For more information and tickets please visit www.DCExhibition.co.uk
