We’ll also some comics-only material, so consider bringing along a friend who can tell the difference between a Kree and a Skrull. There may be an Ant-Man-sized portion of material from the One-Shot short films or the Agents of SHIELD TV series.We can’t guarantee a Stan Lee cameo but we can guarantee that our quiz will have you pumped and primed for the midnight shows of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Plus, make sure you dig out your best t-shirts, costumes, and armor, because our themed events are like a mini-convention… except cheaper, funnier, and with beer.‘Nuff said.
