Cory Booker said he was in the "Sky of Geeks" when he visited Comic-Con 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center on Friday.
The US Senator from New Jersey was the first Democratic president of 2020 hoping to visit the comic book convention this year. He spent his time interacting with voters, posing with superheroes and trying on virtual reality glasses.
He even entered an artificial space capsule in the exhibition "Star Trek: Discovery," the Los Angeles Times reported.
"I love science fiction. I love fantasy adventures. They call it. It just kills me that I have not seen Spider-Man yet. Here's the sky of geek love for me, "Booker told the newspaper.
Booker said the genres of entertainment that are celebrated at the Comic-Con ̵
"I grew up as a big superhero fan," he told the newspaper. "They talked to me when I was a little kid. That was really, very helpful. They anchored me, but also helped me to dream. This kind of art really is a strong defining image of our culture.
Booker also campaigned for "Star Trek," the science fiction series about the spacecraft USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) and its crew, which travels through a futuristic space universe. "Star Trek" shows how humanity can meet the challenges of poverty, hunger and racial tensions.
