Michigan and Ohio State play dueling superhero halftime shows for National Superhero Day

Happy National Superhero Day!  To celebrate, I'm sharing two shows by arch-rival university marching bands, Michigan and Ohio State, from the same month, November 2016, on the same theme, superheroes.

First, my graduate alma mater, "Superheros" - November 19, 2016 - The Michigan Marching Band.

The Michigan Marching Band halftime performance: "Superheros" Marvel Studio Theme / Batman Theme (Elfman) X Men First Class Theme / Spider Man Superman / Ooh Child / Shoop / Sexy Sax Man Captain America March / Wonderwoman Theme / I Need a Hero
Next, Michigan's arch-rival, OSUMB Halftime Show in HD: Superheroes Tribute- Ohio State vs. Nebraska (11/5/16).

WOW! Best halftime show yet brought to you by BuckeyeTV, Channel 19. Ohio State Marching Band presents, "Superheroes" for the Halftime Show, Ohio State vs. Nebraska on November 5th, 2016.
Drill Design: Dr. Christopher Hoch Music Arrangers: John Brennan, Mark Reynolds Title from Avengers: Age of Ultron Caps Promise from Captain America Oscorp Tower and Main Title from The Amazing Spider-Man Theme from Man of Steel
Between the two shows, that's a pretty complete selection of movie superheroes from both DC and Marvel.

I'll have more on superhero movies next month when I plan on posting more about the Saturn Awards -- or maybe tomorrow when I post about how "Avengers: Infinity War" is doing at the box office.  Either way, stay tuned.

ETA: Both in honor of 'Avengers: Infinity War' having the best opening weekend box office of 2018 so far and my using it at my Dreamwidth journal as a preview of next year's post, here's Michigan State's band making the Avengers logo.  Sorry, I couldn't find a good image of the U of M band from this show other than from the preview of the video above.  At least this photo was from a show at Michigan Stadium.

Avengers assemble!
