Every year at Comic-Con we at Screen Rant look forward to the same things as everyone else: great panels on movies and TV shows, interviews with celebrities, interesting booths and of course, great costumes. Cosplay has become a huge part of the Comic-Con experience with people of every age and every walk of life getting into the spirit by dressing up as their favorite superhero, TV character or comic book character – even a few pedicab drivers join in on the fun!

With more than 100,000 people attending Comic-Con in 2012, there is no way to see every great costume out there. So of the ones we did see, we found 22 costumes that we liked above all the others. You’ll find the names of each of the characters below with the rank we have assigned them.
