For more than two decades, The Deadman has loomed over the WWE landscape like a menacing shadow, spelling out doom for those who dare cross him. Imbued with seemingly mystical abilities and preternatural in-ring ability, The Undertaker is a WWE great in a class by himself, and no list of legends would be complete without him.

First introduced at Survivor Series in 1990, it wasn’t long before he began to battle with WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan. This clash set the tone for Undertaker’s dominant career. No one was too big and no one was safe from his gloved grip.

The Undertaker joins such noted pop culture figures as Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker of The Walking Dead, Morena Baccarin, Karen Gillan, Evan Peters, Katie Cassidy and others currently scheduled to attend Wizard World Austin Comic Con, set for October 2-4 at the Austin Convention Center.

Can two of Marvel’s mightiest Heroes find a way to work together without smashing each other before time runs out?
