Heroes & Villains may be defeated by storm this weekend

SECAUCUS – The team that created the wildly popular “Walker Stalker” conventions devoted to the television program “The Walking Dead” has branched out with their modernized version of a comic convention, the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest.
Promising “two days of immersive experiences and memories,” the convention is scheduled to take place at the Meadowlands Expo Center, 355 Plaza Drive, on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 23 and 24, before moving on to Chicago and Atlanta later in the year.
However, weather may be the one thing that superheroes can’t overcome. A message send out Thursday afternoon by the organizers reads as follows:
“Like you, we are watching the weather carefully. Though we have NOT made a final determination to cancel Saturday, we have spoken to the venue and will be permitting attendees of Saturday ticket holders to use their tickets on Sunday instead if you so choose.”
The Fan Fest promises the opportunity to personally meet favorite celebrities, with exclusive panels, celebrity photo ops, events and more. Among those scheduled to participate are cast members from “Arrow,” “Gotham,” “The Flash,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” along with comic book artists and creators. Attendees can “Immerse yourself in the world of superheroes and villains. Learn what it takes to be a superhero by participating in obstacles, games of skill, and maybe even gain a superpower too. Get insight into your favorite shows, learning how they are created from the creators and talent behind them.”
