Captain Kirk, Chewbacca, Batman: Salt Lake Comic Con creates geek heaven as stars and fans gather
Bennett said that while some may see the entertainment industry as something degrading, he sees it as a powerful tool that can be used to promote morality and change. Entertainment, Bennett said, can help use become better people.
“Social justice and doing the right thing and having the power to make choices and defend society — these are all comic issues,” Bennett said. “I tend to think that we need to look at it as these heroes are personified versions of ourselves at an extreme where we’re able to be better people.”
Tickets can be purchased online at saltlakecomiccon.com or, if available, at the Salt Palace Convention Center the day of the event.
