Forget Comic-Con, superhero central is in Indiana

This might be the world's first-ever Superman toy, created in 1940, just two years after the Man of Steel made his first appearance. The toy, and thousands of other collectibles are on display at the Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum in Elkart, Ind.

ELKHART, Ind. — Comic-Con in San Diego? Who needs it? I’ve got the Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum.

Even as tens of thousands of people were descending on San Diego for Comic-Con this week, I took another path to superhero nirvana, stopping in on Road Trip 2013 at what is probably the best comic book and superhero museum in the world.
