Marvel-exclusive KAPOW! Universe opens in Manila

Marvel-exclusive KAPOW! Universe opens in Manila
User Rating

Comic book lovers now have a marvelous new hangout at the KAPOW! Universe concept store in Glorietta 5, Makati. The recently opened franchise is the first in Southeast Asia and is an authorized retailer of Marvel merchandise, including comics, apparel, and collectibles.

Where spandex, capes, and colorful boots are the norm, you’d definitely feel underdressed when you step in wearing regular jeans and shirt–but a great way to hide your superhero identity, if you ask us. The Manila store is designed like a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility to complete the Marvel experience. It  opened with a bang (or a kapow?) on September 29, only less than a year after the very first KAPOW! Universe store–a collaboration between Walt Disney Fashion and Consumer Productsand MINDstyle International–opened in Beijing, China.

If you’re starting to feel nostalgic about that good old comic book store you used to frequent, that’s because the owners of the KAPOW! Universe in Manila, Collecticons, Inc., also took under their wings Filbar’s.

Run, fly, or swing, marvel at the exclusive Marvel products you can get your hands on, and celebrate comics with fellow comic fanatics. Or just hang around, turn on your spidey sense, and wait for Thor, the X-Men, or Hulk to drop by.
