About the League Against Evil
The League Against Evil is at the SG Philatelic Museum! The exhibition, organised in collaboration with SingPost, Warner Bros, and Pacific Licensing – among others – is part of the celebrations for Batman’s 75th Anniversary.
That’s right – the legendary Dark Knight first appeared in the pages of Detective Comics #27 in May 1939. Does it make you all feel old?
Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth & 2nd Minister for Communications and Information, was the Guest of Honour at the event. As Minister, he had a direct line to the Batcave, so he called up the Caped Crusader.
However, before Batman could swoop in and save the day, the audience had to help him defeat his villains with the League Against Evil@SPM app. Download this app before going, so you can take superhero selfies with your friends and DC characters!
The exhibit itself is stunning despite being confined to one room – it features life-sized cutout renders and limited edition busts of popular DC heroes, as well as stylised text detailing their personal histories and rogues’ galleries.
For me, the standout collectibles were the small scale models of the Batmobiles from the movies. There was art aplenty, with comic panels and concept illustrations from the sketchbooks of the artists themselves.
Of course, there were great stamps as well! I’m a Marvel girl myself, but I was impressed.

The “DC Justice League MyStamp Book” (S$69.90) features a whole lineup of the best-loved DC characters. This stunning 10-page spread lets you get acquainted with the superheroes’ significant milestones, by way of comic book covers and exclusive stamps.
