The idea was part of the Nexen employees' annual fundraising campaign for the charity United Way.

However, this is not the first time they have broken a record for gathering together dressed as superheroes. In 2011, 437 of them wore Superman costumes, only to have the record beaten by dastardly British people two years later.
