With tickets secured, hundreds of UC San Diego students are frantically preparing for San Diego Comic-Con, one of the largest comic conventions in the United States. But this event will be unique, as it will be the first to have attendees dressed up as Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla, from the newly-released movie K-People: Second Class, in which the Chancellor runs a university for non-mutants.
A group of Khosplayers gathered to help each other prepare their Khostumes. “I don’t know what drew me to him,” said one student. “The mystery, I guess. Is he a hero? A villain? An anti-hero? Regardless, it must be exhausting.” Another student arranged plans for the big day. “Yeah, we’re all just going to take the trolley down to the Convention Center. If you miss it, hop in the flying car and don’t get seen by Muggles!”
Students talked about their favorite moments from the old and new Khomics series alike. “Remember when he turned on the lights on that bridge over that freeway? Or when he finished that ‘campaign like non other?’” inquired one student. Another countered, “Yeah, that was cool, but I really liked when the Chancellor said, ‘I am the Senate,’ and then spun around really fast in front of a green screen.”
