Continuing our coverage of C2E2 costumes and other notable sights. Disclaimers are same as before. Corrections are welcome.
Many of this year’s superhuman costumes were based on their filmic counterparts rather than the print versions. I wasn’t surprised to see Bane number among this year’s popular choices. If nothing else, the Dark Knight Rises version is warmer and less revealing than his original luchador ensemble.
Another Bane appeared with his Nolanverse pals Batman and Catwoman. At left, a skeptical Phoenix represents for comics.
Still another Bane invited his Nolanverse buddies Joker and Scarecrow, along with special guest Alt-Universe Two-Face.
Tim Burton’s Catwoman reminds us that Christopher Nolan’s trilogy isn’t the be-all-end-all for every fan.
The Zack Snyder version of Watchmen‘s Silk Spectre pals around with a Dick Tracy suitable for either the one movie or the long-running comic strip.
Also bridging the gap between movies and 1980s mature-readers comics: V and his fabulous Vendetta.
Predator would like a moment of your time, if you’re not busy.
A different Predator will be right with you, right after he takes this important call and/or initiates his self-destruct sequence. As moody as he is, it’s hard to tell which way he’ll go sometimes.
Good news for us: no citywide detonation today. A relieved, merry Predator instead leads Link from Zelda, a fairy friend, and Harry Potter in a life-affirming parade around the exhibit hall.
Geek convention photo album bylaws require the presence of at least one Star Wars character or else. Fulfilling our quota are these two Biker Scouts, who don’t seem the least bit perturbed that the long-lost remains of the late Darth Maul have been stuffed and mounted for Rebel Alliance viewing pleasure.
Adhering to the same inscrutable-full-mask motif is the Blue Power Ranger, kicking off our TV section.
From kickoffs to sidekicks, our man Kato proves he doesn’t need the Green Hornet with him on patrol.
Also on patrol: there in the world is Carmen Sandiego.
Visiting from a different world: Marvin the Martian, hanging out with the Silent Hill nurse from Part 1.
Also appearing from a cartoon: Tigress from the lamentably canceled Young Justice.
Also heading our way from a canceled TV show: the cast of Firefly. Taking their photo is Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, in no danger of cancellation anytime soon.
Also benefiting from a large audience: Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time. Her acquaintance Finn was momentarily distracted.
Most distracting of all: He-Man and Skeletor. By the power of Grayskull, THEY HAVE THE POWER. And so on.
To be continued!
