In less than a month, the lines for Hall H will begin and cosplayers will again descend on downtown San Diego when Comic-Con kicks off July 19. Veterans of the convention and newcomers alike can expect to see countless fans dressed up as Gotham’s Batman, Themyscira’s Wonder Woman and more iconic characters who recently have taken over the big screen.

But what about a newer, more local superhero? As the convention weekend approaches (and in the spirit of fighting franchise fatigue), we want readers to get creative and pitch their ideas of a SoCal superhero — or anti-hero.

Share your ideas below, and maybe this time next year an SDCC cosplayer will bring your vision to life.
