Aussie Cosplayers Set New World Record In Honor Of DC Comics 75th Anniversary

Avengers assemble! No, wait...how about, Superhero dragsters and comic-con cosplayers unite! And that they did, too -- in the land Down Under (Underoos?)  over the weekend. According to the Australian, 1,245 people dressed as Superman, the Hulk and plenty of other superheroes gathered in Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia, earning their rightful place in Guinness' Book by breaking the  previous UK-held record of 1,091 for the most people wearing superhero costumes in one place.  Of all the costumed attendees,  Superman was the most popular costume, followed closely by Batman, Robin, Spider-Man, and Wonder Woman.  Warner Bros sponsored the event in honor DC Comics' 75th Anniversary this year.
