For decades, fans have flocked to San Diego every summer for a parade of Comic-Con surprises featuring their favorite characters, movies, and creators. San Diego's Comic-Con International has been held every summer since its inception as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970. Back then, it was just a small gathering of like-minded fans to swap comics and geek out about Star Trek in a hotel lobby. These days, SDCC is held at the San Diego Convention Center and draws in hundreds of thousands of fans and cosplayers.

It's evolved to cover the entire entertainment industry across nearly every genre and medium, and has become the launching ground for some of the most successful movies of all time. The convention's biggest stage, Hall H, has served up a host of memorable Comic-Con surprises in recent years as studios and filmmakers try to outdo each other and delight fans. Here are the best Comic-Con moments in the convention's history so far.
