Easter Eggs at Disney California Adventure's Marvel Meet-And-Greet Area

I tweeted about this earlier this month, but I thought I'd collect all the Easter Eggs I found at the new Marvel character meet-and-greet area at Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort. At first, I was a little wary of the new area, but was pleasantly surprised by the Easter Eggs, including some really obscure ones. Let's explore!

On a mailbox you pass in the queue area, there are a couple of references. One comes in a sticker of a skull on fire. This is, obviously, a reference to Marvel's own Spirit of Vengeance - Ghost Rider!

Also on the mailbox is a reference to Marvel Legend Stan Lee's catch phrase - EXCELSIOR!

Toward the end of the queue, there is a wall with a few wheat paste posters. One of the posters is for the Stark Expo 2010 which was featured in Iron Man 2.

Also on the wall are posters for a Steeltown Rockers concert. This has to be the most obscure Easter Egg and it made me giggle to see it. It's a reference to the 1990 Marvel 6-issue limited series "Steeltown Rockers" by Elaine Lee and Steve Leialoha about an actual rock band. I knew it right away because, at one point, I owned the run of the series. LOL!

And, then, finally, the Hand of the King refers to the Infinity Gauntlet being sought by Marvel cosmic villain Thanos who has made cameo appearances in several of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Captain America meet-and-greet takes place in front of the 15th Precinct. A patriotic themed area, the 15th Precinct actually has a connection to Marvel's grittier side of town. It is the major Police Department in Hell's Kitchen often seen in Netflix's Daredevil series.

At the Spider-Man meet-and-greet area, we see the Daily Bugle where Peter Parker works. Spider-Man poses in front of a sign for BP Power Co. who's slogan is "Your Service Is Our Great Responsibility." This, of course, is a reference to Uncle Ben's words of wisdom, "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility."
