Wizard World Chicago 2014 Photos, Part 3: Marvel and Dark Horse Costumes!

The Avengers!

The Avengers! Classic lineup, different take.

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:

This weekend was that time again: our annual excursion to Rosemont, IL, for Wizard World Chicago. My wife and I took plenty of photos as usual, many of them usable. We’ll be sharing those over the next several entries, but I’m still too fatigued from the experience to figure out how many entries these will take.

Part three, then: representatives from the Marvel Universe, along with a few folks from other comic-book companies. Enjoy!

Venom and Moon Knight!

Venom and Moon Knight welcome you! And they’re watching you.

Storm and Wolverine!

The early-80s Storm that we have yet to see Halle Berry attempt, and Wolverine between costume changes.

Scarlet Witch and Ms. Marvel!

The Scarlet Witch and Ms. Marvel, more Avengers assembling.


Deadpool in all his normal regalia.


Kid Deadpool and Chef Deadpool. Thus is the Crisis on Infinite Deadpools at hand!

Sir Deadpool!

Sir Deadpool, Esq., dedicated follower of fashion.

Wolverpool! Deadverine!

X-23 hangs out with Wolverpool. Or Deadverine. Whichever.


A different X-23 hangs out with her new friends Rogue and Li’l Beast.

Falcon Wings!

The Winter Soldier and the most complex set of Falcon wings we saw on the show floor.

Danielle Moonstar!

Dani Moonstar from the New Mutants in Valkyrie form, alongside Colonel Stars & Stripes.

Dark Phoenix and Spider-Woman!

Dark Phoenix and Spider-Woman, confirming they’re perfectly content to choose their own comfortable poses.

Tony Stark!

Tony Stark, with working arc-reactor and repulsor lights connected to a belt-buckle control mechanism. Radioactive fuel sold separately.

Iron Stan!

This pic of Stan Lee, the White Queen, RoboCap, Iron Man, War Machine, and Bronze Iron Man was 10,000 times cooler before we found out the guy was probably a Stan cosplayer. The dozens of fans swarming him were pretty convinced. There was even a handler somewhere in this mess telling people to stand back and give him space…


Betcha know who Star-Lord is NOW, HUH?

Darth Talon and Revan!

Comics not from Marvel, part 1 of 3: Darth Talon from Star Wars: Legacy, and Darth Revan from Knights of the Old Republic (the comics and the game). Also, special cameo by Finn from Adventure Time.


Comics not from Marvel, part 2 of 3: Hellboy! Plus a luchador.

Herbie the Fat Fury!

Comics not from Marvel, part 3 of 3: my wife meets Herbie the Fat Fury! Yes, he’s a real character. Yes, I’ve heard of him. No, he’s not a YouTube star. You’d be surprised what happened in comics back in the ’50s and ’60s. It took me a while to explain Herbie to her, though.

To be continued!
