Everyone loves a superhero. But it’s not that often that people get to pal around with the oft-masked crusaders. Fortunately for us, there’s an upcoming opportunity to skate alongside a few of our favorite superheroes, which will definitely be a big hit with the youngsters… or anyone else that appreciates these upstanding comic book hero figures.
