Superheroes flocked to the Union and Octagon this weekend for WOSCON.

WOSCON (World of Superheroes Convention) is a new, family run breed of Comic-Con – the annual events that celebrate comics, movies and games, drawing in nerds from around the globe.

Attendees were dressed to the nines, kitted out in impressively detailed costumes, these fans knew how it was done.

The union hosted activities with a massive games room containing loads of consoles, stands full of comic book memorabilia, and a kids’ zone with performances from favourite fantasy characters.

As always, Bar One really rose to the occasion by serving up specials including the “Luke Skyporker” and the “Wolver-bean burrito.” Punderful.

What could be better than going for a Coffee Revs with Darth Vader?

The event also featured special guests, including Ian McElhinney who plays Barristan Selmy in Game of Thrones.

It is yet to be confirmed if he got a Ned Stark burger at Broomhill Friary.
