Also here are some shots that josh took. Top one was with an awesome post-apocalyptic Avengers group that I posed with for awhile, bottom was from the Wonder Woman Universe shoot this morning (there was another female atomic wonder woman AND a genderbent atomic wonder dude- they were both awesome)- I’m the one in the middle (in case it wasn’t clear from my enormous chainsaw)
The class is pain 101. #comics #cosplay #tmnt #caseyjones
Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Stan Lee, presumably non-superpowered child, Doctor Strange. Circa 1977.
What do you think of these Marvel Universe Cosplay Portraits from Dragon Con, including Ultron, Namor, Moonstone, Mystique, Daredevil and Odin?

Marvel goes to the White House, October 1, 1980. Too bad Jimmy Carter didn’t show up; we could add it to this collection.
So we now know that it’s Jonathan “Commander Riker” Frakes there as Captain America, and of course that’s First Lady Rosalynn Carter with daughter Amy in the middle picture. But who’s in that first picture? I recognized Stan Lee and Marvel President Jim Galton, but the gentleman on the left, and the woman in the middle? No idea.
"I was striking a few poses in my superhero costume when a young boy perched higher on a rock chimed in.
'Captain America does not have a turban and beard,’ he said. He had a child’s curious tone. No malevolence.
'Why not?' I asked him. 'I was born here. We could have a new Captain America who is Sikh or black or Hispanic.'
He thought about this. Finally, he conceded that yes, maybe a black or Hispanic Captain America would be OK.”
Cosplay is for everybody. I hope I see Captain America in a Turban at New York Comic Con this year! So cool!
