There's plenty of hidden details at Islands of Adventure's Marvel Superhero Island.

You can see the signature of Adam Kubert strategically placed in all the artwork. Fans of Marvel comics will be overjoyed to see nods to their favourite heroes all around and there's even paint work that appears to change colour as you walk around.

One detail that park goers seem to completely overlook is hidden in plain sight. A massive explosion!

Located across from The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man you can find plinths decorated with an array of Marvel characters. If you look down, the pavement has been designed to resemble a dust cloud.

It turns out our Marvel heroes and villains crashed down to Islands of Adventure leaving behind the smokey pavement and the plinths are comic style details for the explosion. The explosion design even goes out to the edge of lagoon where the cloud of smoke has created ripples in the design.

Comic fans might also be interested to know that when the land opened actual comics named after the land were created and sold within the park, reflecting three of the land's new attractions.
