PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (AP) - It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a ... world record?

The Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, Okla., hopes to capture the world record for most original superheroes in one place.

On Aug. 4, the museum aims to bring in people dressed as superheroes of all sorts. Event organizers say they're aiming for original superheroes - meaning participants should conjure up their own costumes, rather than don a Batman getup.

The museum plans a group photo at 10 a.m. to submit to Guinness World Records in hopes of setting a record.

The Guinness website doesn't list a current record holder for the largest gathering of original superheroes. In September, 437 people in Alberta, Canada, set the record for largest number of people dressed as Superman.
