The League Against Evil: A DC Super Heroes Exhibition


The League Against Evil: A DC Super Heroes Exhibition is now on till 31 August 2014 at the Singapore Philatelic Museum. The exhibition is part of the celebrations for the 75th Anniversary of Batman.  A preview was held on 5 June 2014. The "DC Justice League" and "Batman 75th Anniversary" MyStamp Collections by Singapore Post were also launched that day. Here's what went on at the preview and also a peak of what you can see at the exhibition.


It's hard to miss the venue. The exterior of the museum is decorated with large DC banners and posters. It's not the Hall of Justice but it's a place The Justice League can call home.


Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth & 2nd Minister for Communications and Information was the Guest of Honour at the event. Everything went smoothly. That is until the organisers received word that Postman Joe, who was delivering an important package to the event was kidnapped.

The organisers had prepared for such an emergency. They had a direct line to the Batcave. I like the phone!


Many villains it seemed were involved in the nefarious plot. Batman couldn't handle them on his own and we had to help him defeat the villains via the League Against Evil@SPM app by Right Here Media. With the villains defeated, Postman Joe and his package was escorted by Batman to the museum.   



Proceedings then resumed. Mr Lawrence Wong officially launched the exhibition and the DC Justice League & the Batman 75th Anniversary MyStamp Collections.



The “DC Justice League MyStamp Book” (S$69.90) showcases some of your favourite DC characters, including Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. This stunningly illustrated 10-page spread lets you get up close with each of these superheroes’ significant milestones through comic book covers and exclusively-designed stamps.
