It’s that time of year again! Anne and I are at Wizard World Chicago in scenic Rosemont, IL, where we’re so far having a blast even though parts of it resemble hard work and our feet feel battle-damaged after two days of endless walking, standing, lining up, shuffling forward in cattle-call formation, and scurrying toward exciting people and things…
My wife and I took an okay number of photos over the course of our three-day stay and will once again be sharing the most usable over the next several entries.
Tonight’s episode: familiar faces from the Marvel House of Ideas!
Trevor the Mandarin prepares to destroy anyone who doesn’t want his photo.
Iron Cap and the Scarlet Witch teaming up at the Iron Brothers of Topeka booth.
Carnage wreaks havoc with sinister stretchy symbiote slaying simulation!
The Beast represents on behalf of both mutantkind and the blues.
Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, a.k.a. the Ill Intent.

If you love the Marvel Cinematic Universe but you’ve never read a comic, you’ll be hearing a lot more about the Infinity Gauntlet over the next three years. Usually its wearer is in charge of its vast power, but this one has a mind of its own. Be very afraid.

Looks like variant Juggernaut, right? WRONG. This is his son J2, from Marvel’s “MC2” alt-future timeline. This is my kind of obscure. Kudos!
DOOM NOW RULES THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AND HAS DECREED THERE IS NO ROOM FOR THIS “J2” IN IT!

CAUTION: YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE MANDATORY DEADPOOL PHOTO GALLERY. FAN DISCRETION IS ADVISED. NO, I DON’T KNOW WHY THESE KEEP HAPPENING TO US.
Standard baseline Deadpool. Mostly harmful.
A more cartoony version of Deadpool. I would’ve asked for details, but this was one of those awkward busy-intersection photos that would’ve gotten us murdered by disgruntled traffic if we’d stayed in place another five seconds.
Deadpool vs. Slade! Marvel vs. DC! Swords vs. more swords! Grim vs. goofy!
Now that Cable isn’t returning his calls, Deadpool finds a new partner in Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z.
Scottish Westboro Baptist Deadpool. Or something. I, uh, I’m thinking this is a great place to stop.
