Undoubtedly one of the most popular aspects of any Comic Con is the cosplay. A huge variety of fandoms are represented at each and every one, and there were numerous excellent ones on display at the Motor City Comic Con as well.
While there was a scheduled contest on Saturday, some of the best were found just on the show floor. We’ll do a post about the actual contest in a couple of days, and you will see some repeat customers between this post and the contest one – but you’ll see plenty of different ones as well.

Without a doubt, there was a very superhero (and villain)-heavy theme at play here. I mentioned in my opening article that there were a lot more children / families than some of the more anime-inspired cons, and many of them were dressed up. Tons of creativity was on display throughout the event.
One particular theme cracked me up – STOP READING THE WORDS HERE IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ENDGAME AND DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED.
Seriously… last chance. Even if it was a small spoiler. Tiny really – unlike….
Okay, I’m putting a video here as a spacer / spoiler prevention method….
I’m just saying… almost as soon as Endgame completed, I joked with my wife that now schlubby middle-aged guys like me had a superhero they could cosplay, and ‘Fat Thor’ was a popular choice indeed. Several different ones could be seen throughout the Con, and two in particular did a great job of voicing the character, sounding a good deal like the movie version of him. It made for some entertaining spectacle to be sure.
