The FBI are seeking a criminal they have dubbed the "Comic-Con Bandit" in conjunction with a series of robberies in the Louisville and Littleton, Colorado areas. The Comic-Con Bandit is suspected of robbing two banks, one while dressed as Darth Vader, and the other while dressed as Black Panther.

Police believe the suspect to be a white male in his 20's or early 30's, standing between 5'10" and 6' tall. The suspect fled the scene on foot, though he may be connected to a woman driving a late model Saturn Vue seen in the area.

It seems the only connection between the robber and any "comic-con" is his use of masks from comic books and pop culture while committing the robberies - a trope often seen in comic books and movies, such as the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, where the thief's Black Panther mask would have fit right in with the thieves wearing Avengers masks.

Anyone with information regarding the Comic-Con Bandit should contact the FBI through the information provided on their official notice, included here.
