Hundreds come out for "Mini" Charity Comic-Con benefiting the Mission at Kern County

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Superheroes, supervillains and popular video game characters invaded the Bakersfield Marriott Sunday for the 3rd "Mini" Charity Comic-Con. 

Hundreds of people dressed up for the event benefiting the Mission at Kern County.

Nine-year-old Isaac Martinez dressed as the twelfth doctor from "Doctor Who". 

"He has been my favorite doctor that I have watch so far," Martinez said. "Out of one, two ,three ,four, I haven't seen six, seven, eight, nine, but I have seen 10, 11, and 12 so 12 is my favorite." 

A hundred percent of the proceeds went to the Mission at Kern County. 

"I've been there," event organizer Steve Wyatt said. "It's been 30 years, but I've been there with my wife and kid. I'm glad I'm not there now, but every little bit helps. It really is a good cause."

Star-Lord, the original Tinker Bell and even the Joker supported the cause. 

"They have a whole bunch of stuff here," Brandon Spears, dressed as the Joker, said. "From comic books to things I've never even seen before, especially the comic books since I've never read them, and they have a whole bunch of gifts here that I don't normally see, and it's for charity too."

"Mini" Comic-Con is held every other year, benefiting a different charity. 

If you can't wait that long, the annual two-day Comic-Con will be held Nov.17-18 at the Kern County Fairgrounds.
