Cyclops may not always have been given his due in the X-Men movies but he's never been forgotten by fans.
The character - a mutant whose eyes emit blasts that can be controlled only by a special visor - made an appearance at the 2011 International Comic Convention, held this past weekend at the Holiday Inn, Birmingham.
Scottish writer Mark Millar pulled out of the event - now in its sixth year - because of ill health.
But, in addition to the hordes of fans dressed as their favourite heroes, there were plenty of other publishers, writers and artists gathered at the venue, including Chris Sprouse who made his debut appearance at a UK comic-con.
Speaking to our Birmingham sister paper The Sunday Mercury, Sprouse explained it took him and his wife Xan two days to travel from Columbus, Ohio, as planes were grounded when Hurricane Irene threatened the American east coast. »
