Each of these panels has been led by our editors over the years to highly attended events and maintained topics which have been hotly debated. Through the years our editors have compiled their lists and arguments for the above and we at Caffeine and Ink have heard arguments from attendees in support and against these choices. The panels are action packed, exciting, and allows attendees to do what they love to do best…debate about their favorite characters and stories, and their powers.

In 2017 we have all new revisions to these panels and we look forward to presenting them at your convention.
