New York Comic Con has come and gone, but with an estimated 100,000 attendees, it might be safe to say you were part of that awesome onsalught of costumes, actors, artists and general geekdom.

But in case you found yourself with either a life or were in a coma here's a quick recap of the weekend festivities.

-- Thundercats, Captain America and Spawn creators are looking to reboot the franchises on the Cartoon Network.

-- "The Flash" live action movie project is gaining steam. The rumored live action Justice League movie was shot down by DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns, who said he'd rather spend time building each character separately than "smashing them together."

-- Adrien Brody said "Predators 2" might be in the making. Brody revealed to MTV that "Predators" had a version that included the original predator hunter, Arnorld Schwarzenegger, passing the torch onto the franchise's new heroes.

From Brody: "There was a version we were going to do that had a different ending that it really would have been fitting for Schwarzenegger to be there," Brody said. "It would have been like him passing the gauntlet to my character ... and the bravery of my character proven. That would have been just epic."

-- Sequels for "The Pineapple Express," "Zoolander," "Kickass" and "Unbreakable" are also in the works.

-- "Green Lantern" trailer will debut in the the upcoming "Harry Potter" movie in November.

-- A playable demo of "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" was on display. I didn't get a chance to play it because of the massive crowd surrounding the booth, but it looks like it's keeping true to the original series while taking advantage of today's technology.

-- DC Universe Online MMO was pushed back from its original release in November to "sometime in 2011." The demo was also on hand and it looks ridiculously good. Set within the DC Comics world, DC Universe Online will let players create a superhero or villain and fight alongside or against such iconic comic book characters as the Joker, Batman, Superman and others.

-- Donkey Kong is back! The reboot is similar to Nintendo's earlier reboot, The New Super Mario Bros. The gameplay is nearly identical, with updated graphics.

-- A Michael Jackson dancing game is being released for Wii, PS3 and Xbox. The Wii version is set to come before the holidays, while PS3 and Xbox owners will have to wait till sometime in 2011.

-- Marvel mastermind Stan Lee announced his new collaboration with MTV  to create a new comic series called "The Seekers."

-- With all the emphasis on multimedia and costumes, it's sort of easy to forget Comic Con is all about the comics. This USA Today post highlights some of the best hidden comics at the show.
