Nashville, Tenn. /Christian News/ — Following the successful auction of his “Han Solo Carbonite Desk,” which raised more than $10,000 for charity in 2010, Casting Crowns’ frontman and movie memorabilia collector Mark Hall is at it again. Currently, Hall is auctioning his one-of-a-kind “Marvel Superhero Desk,” inspired by box office hit “The Avengers,” now in theaters, with all proceeds going to World Vision’s WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) program.

It comes fully outfitted with an Iron Man helmet, arc reactor that lights up, Thor’s hammer, Hawkeye’s arrows with lights, a gamma vault, Captain America’s shield, and Nick Fury’s gun, badge, and I.D.
