New York is home to countless comic book superheroes, so when Comic-Con comes to town, it's no surprise that all the heroes and cosplayers come crawling out of the woodwork to assemble in the Javits Center. Clearly setting out with something to prove against its bigger, cooler brother, San Diego Comic-Con, NYCC was bursting with amazing panels for lots of big shows and movies as well as hordes of beautiful cosplayers.
