A Blast From The Past: MARVEL MANIA Restaurant Menu
With Marvel now being owned by Disney, fanboys everywhere are wondering if the Mouse House will end up exploiting the Marvel license in ways unseen.
Seems they have a limited memory though, as Marvel has always pushed their name on anything they could, and between the glorious years of 1998 and 2000, this included a short lived restaurant, called Marvel Mania.
Over at Comic Book Resourced, they’ve uncovered the menu for the Universal City based restaurant, and it’s full of terrible comic puns, as you’d expect.
It featured appetizers like Gambit’s Ragin’ Cajun Quesadillas, entrees like Archangel Hair Pasta and Doc Ock’s Wok stir fry, but the real draw had to be the desert known as THE GALACTUS.
The Galactus, surely a destroyer of worlds, is described as such:
You’ll need to be the devourer of worlds to tackle this titan. Twelve scoops of ice cream topped with marshmallow, hot fudge, raspberry and caramel sauce; nuts, cherries and whipped cream. A titanic treat, perfect for any party or Super Hero family.
All that could’ve been yours for just $35.
Honestly, reading over this menu has me hoping another Marvel themed restaurant in the works. At the least, we get a new awesomely illustrated menu! Click through the link below for more of a look at the restaurant, including photos of the Mark Bagley illustrated menu.
