The stories told by Marvel Comics have been enthralling readers since 1939. Today, their characters are known to millions, and animated series, live-action television and blockbuster movies tell their stories. Marvel action figures allow their owners, old and young, to bring out the hero in themselves. Walmart Canada has a wide selection of action figures so you can find your favourite, whether your loyalty lies with the Avengers or X-Men.
Every superhero needs a villain, and you can find those villains at Walmart Canada. Popular heroes, including Iron Man, Hawkeye and Spider-Man, can be found with arch enemies such as Thanos, the Chitauri and Doc Ock.
But if your favourite character isn’t from Marvel, don’t worry. You can also find the heroes and villains from other stories. The Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars and Batman action figures are all available to choose from so you can grab the hero that your kid loves.
Without the shield, Captain America would just be Steve Rogers. Without the Batmobile, the Dark Knight would only be Bruce Wayne. It’s the suit of armour that turns Tony Stark into Iron Man. You can find a variety of superhero accessories in store and online. The right vehicle helps your heroes get around, and the correct armour helps them protect themselves, their team and the world.
Kids learn through stories, both the stories we tell them and the stories they tell themselves. Superhero stories teach valuable lessons about standing up for your principles and sticking up for other people. With Marvel action figures, children have the tools to put themselves in stories where they stand up to bullies and save the world.
Playing pretend is easier with a mask, just like their favourite hero wears, or a wand like Harry Potter carries. Action figure playsets come with everything they need to create a world where heroes step forward to protect the people who can’t protect themselves. Toys for all ages are available, so even the youngest superhero fan can join Captain America on an adventure.
It’s not just kids who appreciate a good superhero story. Many adults are avid collectors of action figures from Marvel, DC Comics and beyond. Maybe you grew up reading the comics, or perhaps you only became a superhero fan after the release of the movies. Either way, action figures are the perfect item to add to your collection.
You’ll find more than just the movie heroes at Walmart.ca. The characters from the television series Luke Cage and Cloak and Dagger are represented. If you love the comics, you can find characters that aren't seen in the movie and television series, such as Dazzler and Shatterstar.
Whether the figures stay in their boxes on a shelf or you display them in full fighting stances, they'll remind you of the characters you love and why you love them.
