Batman Didn't Impress Me

Even as a kid, when I watched the Batman tv series, I kind of thought that Batman didn't look really tough.  No, this isn't another "bash Adam West" thread (although it could be).  Instead it is another "praise Motor City Comic Con" post.
As I have stated and shown before, attendees often dress in character.  Sometimes they do so for a costume contest.  Sometimes they do so just for fun.  Whatever their reason, it is always interesting to the rest of the onlookers.
At the MCCC I met an attendee dressed as Batman.  He was in pretty good shape (better than West had appeared), but he lacked height.  On the other hand, why should he not indulge just because he is vertically challenged.  He looked pretty good all things considered.
Other things of note in the photo include Torrie Wilson and Cookie's fan (singular).  Wilson is a retired wrestler turned actress.  She had a decent line throughout the convention.  Cookie, however, is a current wrestler who had very few fans during the event.  In fact, the guy shown might account for half of her fans. 
Hey, it's all part of the fun at the Motor City Comic Con and there is always quite a bit of fun there!

At least Torrie Wilson is in the background. Actually, I did get Wonder Woman (in a future post). I tried to get the whole Justice League.
