You may see Superman or Batman walking around Indianapolis in March. Or maybe it’ll be members of Marvel’s Avengers.

Indianapolis will host its first official Comic Con-style event March 14-16 at the Indiana Convention Center. Action3 Events and Promotions, a company that puts on similar events in Tampa, Orlando and Nashville, will run the convention.

For years, Indianapolis has hosted Gen Con, an annual event that attracted more than 41,000 attendees in 2012. The success of that event influenced organizers to bring a comic book-centric event to the Circle City.

The convention will include comics, cosplay, videos, toys, action figures, anime, video games, Star Wars, artwork, trading cards and more. Admission will cost $20 per day or $45 for a three-day pass. Kids 12 and under get in free.

Chris Gahl of Visit Indy said the event is expected to draw 4,000 visitors.
