We’ve done a few posts on the costuming aspects of New York Comic Con 2013, and this might be the last one, but I think it’s an interesting observation.
Traditionally, with rare months of exception, Marvel Comics almost always beats-out DC Comics in terms of sales – often quite handily.
But, one place DC soundly trounced Marvel is in the fan costuming, as observed at New York Comic Con 2013.

To be sure, there are X-Men of all sizes, genders, and varieties but, beyond an occasional Captain America or Iron Man, I can’t say I’ve seen many more Marvelites. I don’t think I saw a single Spidey, or Hulk. (You think THEY’D be popular subjects!) No members of the Fantastic Four, Thor, Daredevil, or any recognizable villains.
|Look! Green Lantern's even infiltrated X-Men costumers!|
|At least it's a "SMILEY Mallet!"|
Superman and Supergirl were naturally next, with other Justice League characters, including Green Arrow and Black Canary, also in attendance.
|Sorry Supes and Green Arrow, but we decided to run this photo of Batgirl again!|
I have no explanation for this but, as a longtime DC partisan, it was kinda fun to watch.
