  • Bluntman and Chronic

    Bluntman and Chronic -- Snoochie Boochies, cannabis fans! Everyone’s favorite stoner duo is on the prowl, and they look as high as the current interest in the “marijuana gold rush” that has captured the imaginations of entrepreneurs and investors alike. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Cyclops, Phoenix and Star-Lord

    Cyclops, Phoenix and Star-Lord -- "X-Men: Days of Future Past" took no time in kicking butt at the box office, and was a major win for Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA). Now, another team of Marvel superheroes will be getting the star treatment as Disney’s "Guardians of the Galaxy" hits theaters. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Daft Punk

    What’s cooler than a robot? Two robots. Especially if they make excellent dance music. Daft Punk gave Columbia Records (NYSE: SNE) a big win when "Random Access Memories" earned the duo five Grammys for 2014, including Album of the Year. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Doctor Who, TARDIS and Captain America

    All fans of the time-traveling alien Doctor Who are squirming with anticipation for Peter Capaldi’s darker take on the beloved character. The Time Lord has even been making his way to the big screen as of late. Another big-screen favorite has been another boy associated with blue … and red … and white. He’s no other than Captain America, who grossed $713,029,272 at box offices on a budget of $170 million, which left Disney (NYSE: DIS) associating him with one color: green.

  • Edward Scissorhands

    Edward Scissorhands -- That gothic hair and pair of sharp mitts known as Edward Scissorhands stole hearts in the early '90s. As many who may have felt like outsiders join in the celebrating the beauty of differences and creativity, it’s clear that many left no expense on their hairdos, many of which are as elaborate as the costumes, themselves. That’s good news for the steadily growing hair care industry, which is due to make gains through to 2017. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Fionna and Cake

    "Youth culture forever!” has essentially become the mantra of Adventure Time fans, and judging by the show’s immense popularity, massive merchandising, and major presence here at Comic-Con: San Diego, it will continue to pull in major dollars for Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB). Fionna and Cake are just the icing in this sweet and surreal cast of characters. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • The Flash and Green Arrow

    The Flash photobombs Green Arrow in this hilarious cosplay moment. Even funnier, it’s on the cusp of The Flash entering Oliver Queen’s CW turf in October. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Hawkeye, Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Raiden

    Hawkeye, Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Raiden show off in the ultimate team up of video game legends and comic book credit (besides Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, perhaps), which just goes to show crossovers can be a successful idea. Just look at the Marvel vs. Capcom series. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Lego Batman

    Lego Batman has been a win for both DC (NYSE: TWX) and Lego, and here he is charming it up outside of Comic-Con. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Link

    Link is bringing together all the right notes as he plays along with various songs from Nintendo’s enduring fantasy franchise Legend of Zelda. Fans are likely to always keep these games profitable. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Lumpy Space Princess

    Oh my glob! It’s Lumpy Space Princess! She’s just one in an Adventure Time army, which begs the question of whether or not parent company Viacom will be making a movie out of the popular show. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Robin

    While he won’t be featured in Batman and Superman’s upcoming romp, Robin is a beloved figured in the DC universe, and this Golden-Age Dick Grayson costume worn by a local CrossFit employee has been one of the convention's most popular. Perhaps, people find out what happened to Batman’s beloved sidekick in Zack Snyder’s "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" in 2016. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
  • Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Smoke

    There is a shocking amount of characters from the Mortal Kombat franchise walking around Comic-Con. Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Smoke are just a small part of what looks like a massive fan base for the gory video game. It just goes to show that some games will never go out of style, and if the rumors are true, Mortal Kombat’s tenth installment will be quite a festival of horror-film and sci-fi carnage.

  • Spider-Woman and a Bronze Statue

    Spider-Woman and a Bronze Statue are seen here enjoying drinks. With drink specials overflowing to convention goers, partying hard has been the number-one festivity for those toting badges. San Diego’s alcohol sales must been peaking right about now, and in general have been in a good place through out the summer season. (Image credit: Jason Cunningham)
