PORTLAND, Ore. - A cast of pop culture icons came to the Oregon Convention Center to participate in ComiCon and answer questions from fans last month.
 
Portland Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez came to the event Friday night to meet some of his favorite comic artists.

“I’m excited to see Matt Wagner and George Perez because that guy is a legend,” said Lopez.

Before going and meeting his favorite artists, he gave personalized Blazers jerseys to Stan Lee, creator of Spider Man; and Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies.

Robert Englund led a question and answer session on Saturday. He explained to his fans how, as a child, he saw how to build a set like a dream from the movie "The 5000 fingers of Doctor T."

“Salvador Dali was designer for that movie. Who could have portrayed dreams better?” Englund said.

Stan Lee, 91, was unable to hear fans, but was quick to respond when he was told what the question was.

The motivation behind making his comics?

"Greed," Lee replied.

Nuf said.

Panelists kept up the playful mood with fans, poking fun at being indoors in a state known for the outdoors.

“Why are you here today? You should be out scaling Mount Hood or on the beach,” said Adam West jokingly to his fans. West, best known for his acting in the Batman television series from 1966 to 1968, said he knew Oregon well from spending some of his childhood in the state.

Fans got Voodoo Doughnuts as rewards for good questions during WWE superstar CM Punk’s session with the fans.

Punk did take pity on one bad question.

“That’s a bad question," Punk said, "but you can have a doughnut anyways."
