Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) visited Comic-Con this weekend, where he showed attendees what a real-life superhero looks like.
Lewis attended the San Diego event dressed in a trench coat and a backpack, a nod to the outfit he wore while marching across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, 50 years ago. He reenacted that famous march with Comic-Con attendees:

Lewis also took time to talk with some of the younger attendees of the conference, which he attended to promote March, a graphic novel he co-authored about the civil rights movement.
