Going to Comic-Con this year? The answer, whether you know it or not, is a resounding "yes." Why? Because Hulu Original series The Awesomes is going to be there.
The Awesomes - in case you didn't know (but you should) - is a Hulu Original series from Seth Meyers about THE MOST AWESOME team of superheroes ever (hence the name). And if you're at San Diego Comic Con and heading over to the Xbox Lounge at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, you can record you own superhero audition video - which has the chance to be animated into an upcoming episode. That's right - you can finally live out your dream of becoming a real superhero (in animated form, but still).
Not only that, but Seth Meyers and other cast members will be making guest appearances at the Xbox Lounge at 4pm on Saturday, 7/26. Have you booked your ticket to San Diego yet? Do you NOT want to become a superhero and be on a hilarious animated show and meet one of the funniest people alive?
There'll even be a cape-making station in the lounge where Comic-Con attendees can make their own custom capes for their superhero. Every hero needs an awesome cape - and, really, even if you're not a superhero, having a cape just makes everything look more cool and dramatic. So there's that.
Still need more? Fine. The first 100 fans to audition each day will receive a limited edition Prock action figure - and EVEYRONE who auditions will receive a gift card for 1 month free of Hulu Plus. So - free cape, free action figure, and free library of amazing TV shows and movies.
If you're going to Comic-Con, this is a no-brainer. You can finally take a break from standing in line for Hall H panels, paying way too much for food everywhere, and getting surrounded by a sea of cosplayers to hang out at the Xbox Lounge and have a chance to be on one of the most hilarious animated shows around (as well as get a bunch of free stuff).
And if for some reason you're NOT going to Comic-Con, you can still catch the first episode of The Awesomes Season 2 one week before its Aug. 4th premiere, exclusively on Xbox.
But seriously, you should book a plane ticket right now. YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN CAPE. Think how much better your day-to-day life would be with a cape.
