Sci-Fi Speed Dating was a hit for self-proclaimed geeks and nerds at New York Comic Con this year -- people signed up and got real fictional. But a love scandal ripped hearts in two during one of the sessions on Saturday, leaving lusty Princess Leias and sexy Superwomen without partners in crime fighting. The molten hot asteroid of several women's eye was a man dressed up as Bane, one of Batman's arch enemies. Ladies who spoke to HuffPost Weird News said the man was a real charmer during the 2-hour quick-date fest, despite his character being a real nemesis. In Sci-Fi Speed Dating, nobody gives out their names. Instead they're assigned a number -- to avoid the occasional stalker -- and at the end of dozens of rounds, each person writes down his or her favorite numbers.

Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process which has the purpose of encouraging eligible singles to meet large numbers of new potential partners in a very short period of time. Usually advance registration is required for speed dating events. Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event. At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date. At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to. If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.
