The Best DC Cosplay From Comic-Con 2017

Chris Hemsworth Chadwick Boseman Mark Ruffalo

Passengers flying with United Airlines UAL, -1.59% out of San Diego - site of the popular Comic-Con event this weekend - were greeted by a message telling them to remove books from their checked luggage.

It might take the combined forces of the entire Justice League to wrench United Airlines out of its latest pickle.

San Diego's Comic-Con is known for its huge crowds, celebrity panels and outrageous costumes, but it's also the place for TV shows and movies to release trailers.

A Twitter user posted a photo Sunday showing a screen that said travelers had to remove comics from checked bags in San Diego.

In their best Joker impersonation, they replied, "Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?"

Subsequently, the TSA sent out its own tweet noting that there are no restrictions on checking books, which a spokesperson confirmed to MarketWatch.


But the TSA said nope, don't blame us. "There is no problem with [people] taking comic books, which are not a security threat, in their checked baggage".

"While TSA is recommending that customers keep their comic books in their carry-on bags, there are no restrictions on packing them in checked luggage", the company said.

United later responded to The Verge with a version of their boilerplate, "we regret any inconvenience this may have caused" statement that is getting quite the workout this year.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, United claims to have "misunderstood" the TSA's instructions regarding comics - even though a TSA spokesperson has since claimed that the agency never issued any instructions of the sort.

But by Monday, the Transportation Security Administration was saying that no such restriction existed.

It linked the tweet to a June 28 blog which said it had tested the removal of books at two airport locations but this was no longer underway and it had no intention of bringing in the procedures.
