The force was with MCM Comic Con at the weekend as comic and fantasy fans flocked in their droves to Birmingham's NEC for the annual convention – and we were there.

The event combined Comic Con with Britain’s biggest memorabilia collectors' fair, and featured a comic village, a Nintendo Super Smash Bros live tournament and Q&As with sci-fi actors.

If you think Comic Con fans are introverted geeks who idly while away their time in dressing gowns playing World of Warcraft then you're sorely mistaken.

Thousands of enthusiasts turned out in full force this year, including people in anime and fantasy cosplay and the hottest interpretation of Poison Ivy I’ve ever seen – and I’ve seen my fair share being a seasoned DC comic aficionado myself.

Cast your eyes on this selection of the best of cosplay from this year’s Comic Con.
