It was not a bird, not a plane but Superman who arrived next to help his fellow superheroes. Superman appeared as his alter ego, Clark Kent, played by George Stephanopoulos.

The consortium of crime fighters in Times Square grew even bigger when Thor, played by Michael Strahan, lowered down from the sky and announced his arrival with a hammer smash.

The "GMA" superheroes were helped in their fight to save the Times Square studio by dozens of kids dressed in superhero costumes, too.

The superheroes took a break from their crime-fighting ways to get tips from the stars who play the superheroes on the big screen.

"The long flowing locks, you got to have that," "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth told Strahan. "The hammer, don't forget the hammer. It's called Mjölnir. ... Try saying that three times fast."

Vin Diesel, who gave voice to baby Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," shared the similarities he saw between Zee and Groot.

"You know, you two have a lot in common," Diesel told Zee. "You're a meteorologist and Groot has a tremendous grasp of quasi-dimensional, super-positional engineering. But he also likes to groove, and we know how much you love to dance, Ginger."

"Hulk" star Mark Ruffalo, Wyclef Jean and the stars of "Stranger Things 2" also brought spooktacular fun on Halloween.
