Pros & Cons

Along with all the Flyers and other hockey excitement this weekend, the family spent Saturday in NYC. Actually the boys day out turned into the Deathlok's go to the Big Apple. It all stemmed from a generous gift from the owner of my favorite comic store Jester's Playhouse in South Jersey. Rich had two tickets to the convention and couldn't make it, so he gave them to me for my son and I. The convention, the exception of the San diego convention, is one of the biggest ones of the year. the WizardCon in Philadelphia is nice but nothing in size to this. . .and I had never been. My main goal was to get a picture of Grave Park just to piss off Wyatt but she was a no show. Regardless, my son got a lot of great pictures.

Unlike these two (Domino and Black Cat)

many people at the convention have no problem with cross marketing (after all it is New York). for example, The X-Men's Rogue was hanging out with DC's Superman

The Anime version of Superman and Green Lantern were giving weight loss tips to Spider-man

not pictured together, but even Storm and her date Hellboy made a fine couple

Of course, Batman's Rogue Gallery can always be seen hanging together

and even though Harley Quinn was touching up her makeup, she had time for Reilly to sit for a picture.

Although Modern Batman was slying solo, Classic Batman remembered to bring along Batgirl.

Supergirl was friendly enough but her costume was missing something. . . .like ENOUGH CLOTH

I was waiting for the planets to drop out of orbit. YIKES!

Yes, from the world's tallest Jawa

to the world's shortest Hulk (or is that Little Sprout)

Just to compare. . . .

and of course
Finally, a special treat for my son, the Last Airbender was making his way from the Convention floor. we followed and got a very candid picture.

SO Reilly's biggest smile is for Supergirl.

What a good boy.

I would totally battle the pictured Green Lantern and Super Girl.

And by "battle" I mean "hit (euphemistically) like crazy".
