Harley Quinn, Pokémon fans return to Javits Center for Comic Con 2021

For many months, it was a place to come and get your COVD-19 shot. But for a few days, New York Comic Con takes over the Javits Center.

Hundreds came in their best Harley Quinn; Pokémon's Pikachu made an appearance and some even captured their innermost Spider-Man.

The annual gathering of superheroes and villains was canceled last October due to COVID. This year, the newly expanded Javits Center is packed with every comic book, lithograph, and costume.

A number of legendary celebrity guests are appearing all weekend to take pictures with and signing photographs for fans.
