New York Comic-Con is just around the corner, and it's not just the east coast comic book community that's counting down the days until the show kicks off - many of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains (or at least their action figure counterparts) are getting ready, too! The Manhattan-based convention is at the center of the newest edition of "Marvel Super Heroes: What The--?!
," the hilarious stop-motion animated series showcasing a whole host of awesome action figures. In this episode, a trio of villains led by M.O.D.O.K. descends upon New York's Jacob Javits Center just in time for the show. The only thing standing in their way is Captain America, Thor and Iron Man -- but in a surprising twist of fate, both sides find that they have a common goal in mind.Make sure you watch the episode all the way through for one of the most inventive Slave Leia costumes I've ever seen captured on film -- and seeing as the Comics Alliance gang will be at NYCC in full force, we're* buying a chocolate chip cookie for anyone who successfully emulates the Leia costume. For reals!**
* = By "we," I mean Comics Alliance assistant editor Caleb Goellner.
** = By "for reals," I really mean probably not for reals.
