NYCC 2012: Superheroes and Supervillians: They’re Just Like Us! — GALLERY

Thor Cosplay

They battle evil and uphold justice. They don masks, costumes, and capes. They fly, shoot lasers, smash, wield truth lassos, talk to fish, and run really fast. They’re superheroes. And as you can see, they’re just like us.

Okay, maybe not for any of the reasons listed above, but trust me: we have more in common with superheroes than you think. If you happened to make it to this year’s New York Comic Con, you might have happened upon a few heroically clad individuals performing less than heroic deeds. For instance, Batman getting lunch. Thor checking his coat. Deadpool enduring a pretty heavy bender (okay, that’s kind of heroic).

In case you missed out on 2012’s NYCC due to geographical inconveniences, previous engagements, or having a normal job, we’ve compiled a gallery of our favorite superheroes and villains caught on camera doing everyday things. They really are just like us, guys. Except for the truth lassos. Click below to see for yourself!

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
