When YOUR superheroes showed up in New York!

October 13, 2015 09:04 IST

The New York Comic Con is billed as one of the biggest comic book and pop culture gatherings in the United States.

The 'giant nerd event', which drew thousands of costumed fans, panels of pop culture luminaries and featured a sprawling floor of vendors in a space equivalent to more than three football fields at the Jacob Javits Convention Centre on Manhattan's West Side, played host to the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies and television.

Costumes snapped included Star Wars villain Darth Vader in a Santa Claus costume, Marvel character Black Widow, as well as DC comics characters Batman, Bane, Batgirl, Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy.

Let's check out the best-costumed attendees at the three-day event, which concluded last week:
