We’re constantly dreaming up new ways to connect with readers, viewers, and fans at the House of Ideas and now, with everyone spending more time at home than ever, there are even more ways to bring Marvel into your home — wherever your home might be! 

Over the past month, we’ve worked to bring fans a chance to escape within the Marvel Universe, and if you haven’t already, there are so many ways to experience #MarvelAtHome. Whether you’re spending the day working, entertaining family members, or catching up on reading (or watching), here are some of the ways we’re keeping you connected to your favorite Super Heroes.

#MarvelMission

Up for a challenge, agents? The bi-weekly Marvel Missions ask you to recreate iconic items from the Marvel universe with things you have lying around. Last week the task was to create Captain America’s shield. As for this week's mission: Create Thor’s Mjölnir using ONLY safe household items and materials!
