10 Great Marvel Character Cosplayers At San Diego Comic-Con

Marvel versus DC. DC versus Marvel. At San Diego Comic-Con, it seems there is a perpetual battle waged between these fanbases as to which company does it best. Since Marvel sat out of the Hall H festivities this year, DC certainly dominated with headlines about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. But walking the convention floor, I’d say that Marvel’s cosplayers "won" the weekend, and here are 10 pics to prove my point.

This was an incredible Comic-Con, with fantastic footage, informative panels and wonderful fan-driven experiences. Part of the fun is photographing all the top cosplayers in the outfits they worked so hard to create. Here are the 10 best Marvel-themed costumes we saw in San Diego. Did you see better ones? Tell us about them in the comments section!

Who is your daddy, and what does he do?

Rocket

The baby Groot seed is what makes this costume, in our opinion.

Blade

Pay your taxes, dude!

Avengers Assemble!

I picked this one for the Thor, to be honest, though the dueling Scarlet Witches are pretty fierce.

Hawkeye

Finally, the famous archer struck the most heroic pose, earning him the 10 spot on this list.
