Record number of superheroes gather in Oz

275x250.jpgMelbourne was probably the safest place in the world this weekend -- when the city hosted a world record gathering of superheroes.

1245 Aussies wearing superhero costumes met at Federation Square to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the release of the first DC comic.

After donning the famous outfits of heroes from Superman and Batman to Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern they were observed by a Guinness World Records adjudicator.

With their combined super-powers (being in the same place at the same time) the costumes crusaders smashed the previous record of 1091 superheroes.

Costumed record-setters ranged in age from OAPs to a nine-day-old Batman -- whose utility belt contained a bottle and some diaper cream.
