The Best of Superman Cosplay 

June 17, 2013
Batman, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, again (and again). It happens just about every summer, the wave of costumes tied to the release of the latest superhero movie. In 2013, with the Iron Man franchise wrapped up, it's Superman's turn. Here's a diverse collection of Superman cosplayers from coast to coast who were sporting the symbol for "Hope" on their chests -- pre-Man of Steel -- when it was just an "S."

- In Man of Steel, There's Greatness in the Superman Origin Story
- Superman Movies Matter More Than the Comics: A Film-by-Film Breakdown
- Man of Steel: Making Sense of All That Christ and Death Stuff

  • Lina in L.A. -- The Dog & Pony Show

Recently, the fun featured strip tease from Audrey DeLuxe, standup from Michael Patrick Duggan, Paul Jacek and Mary Kennedy and the smokin' musical stylings of Crissy Guerrero and Kristian Hoffman.

  • Comic-Con's "Celebrity" Autograph Area
    A sometimes overlooked (but still incredibly unique) aspect of San Diego Comic-Con are the celebs available to sign autographs, as well as the autograph seekers themselves. If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!
