The costume contest at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2012 had an amazing variety of beautiful costumes and clever cosplayers. The MC, Jarrett Crippen aka The Defuser, is the winner of the second season of Stan Lee‘s “Who Wants To Be A Superhero?” and played Deputy Johnson to Kevin Sorbo‘s (also at Wizard World – more later!)
