At Comic-Con International, a costume reveals more than it hides. The San Diego celebration of pop culture is an annual invitation to declare your tribe, be it Marvel, Middle-earth or Starfleet, and no one enjoys it more than the youngest fans among the 120,000 attendees. The four-day Con wrapped up Sunday but here’s a look back at some of the youngest heroes in the costume parade.
