The Guinness World Record for the most number of people wearing superhero costumes in one location has been broken in Melbourne.
The previous Guinness World Record of 1091 people wearing super hero costumes in the one place held by Britain was smashed as 1245 people - dressed as Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, the Green Lantern and other comic book heroes - gathered at Federation Square.
Superman was the most popular hero, closely followed by Batman, Robin and Spider Man. The girls were out in force too, dressed as Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Super Girl and Hawk Girl.
The managing director of Warner Bros. Consumer Products in Australia, Preston Lewis, shouted triumphantly in his American accent: "We did it, we broke the record my brother."
The event was held to celebrated the 75th anniversary of the release of the first DC comic.
