Having my dream of creating my own comic convention come true.

What makes the Nerd Bar different from other bars?

We are a theme bar that specifically caters to all things nerdy with activities like game night, movie night, nerd trivia, and geek dating game.

If Batman leaves Gotham City in the Batmobile at 12:02 a.m. traveling at 75 mph towards Metropolis to visit Superman, who happens to be flying at 60 mph to Metropolis from Coast City, who will reach Metropolis first?
