The Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame (MCHOF) honors the timeless icons who have made a significant impact on popular culture and recognizes the writers, creators, actors, engineers, developers and artists who worked together to bring them to life.
Sitting at the core of the pop culture experience, characters inspire and challenge us while evoking our emotions and creating a powerful sense of nostalgia. Through our association with these characters we live a reality different from our own, yet we find in them traits, values, stories and experiences that we identify with. The characters honored in the MCHOF have given us strength, created awareness, taught us, helped us to grow and provided pure entertainment.
The Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame will be a cornerstone of the Museum visitor experience allowing fans to celebrate their favorite characters year round.
Stay tuned to see who will be inducted into the Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame in 2020!
In July of 2019, Batman, DC’s iconic Super Hero, was honored as the inaugural inductee into the Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame.
As part of the induction ceremony, Jim Lee, DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer, summed up why Batman is so deserving of the honor.
“Batman is very real. The core of Batman, the qualities that made him endure from generation to generation is as true to life as it gets. Batman is an inspiration that makes us believe that it’s possible to take any hardship and forge it into something good. Batman is real in every person who summons the strength and resilience to keep going, and that my friends is a superpower.”
