Photo Gallery | Marvel Heroes on Display

Some new superheroes swooped onto the Las Vegas Strip.

They were unveiled by none other than the man who originally created them. Stan Lee was at Madame Tussauds inside the Venetian Hotel and Casino Wednesday to help introduce its newest characters, including Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark otherwise known as Iron Man, Thor and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Lee says there is no better place than Las Vegas for them to go on display.

"I can't tell you how thrilling it is to me to see these characters that I've lived with so long actually become wax figures that other people can enjoy now forever," comic book legend Lee said.

The exhibit also includes the first Marvel 4D theater featuring a movie where the superheroes save Las Vegas from destruction.

The new display is all part of a multi-million dollar makeover for Madame Tussauds.
