The Super Hero Shop is now open



The Mego Museum is proud to unveil, an online tribute site to the legendary Heroes World stores.

Before the internet, 70s kids got the majority of toy news from Department store wishbooks and TV. However, for a child who loved Superheroes there was no better check list than the many ads and catalogs produced by New Jersey based comic book chain Heroes World. will serve as a repository for all those ads, catalogs and any other bit of information or memorabilia relating to those days we can find.

Right now we’ve got the 1976 and Fall 1977 catalogs scanned in their entirety along with a gallery of the chain’s many comic book ads. The goal of the site is predictably to collect ’em all!
