Fan favorite John Barrowman is mostly known to the geekdom-at-large as Captain Jack Harkness of Doctor Who and Torchwood fame, as well as Malcolm Merlyn on The CW's Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

The actor is also a regular at San Diego Comic-Con, where he's one of the few celebrities to walk the floor as himself (aka not covered up in a costume) and mingle with fans. Wearing the best Captain America cosplay costume ever (give him all the sparkly awards), Barrowman stopped by SYFY WIRE's outside stage where he sat down with Jackie Jennings.

A proud member of the LGBTQ community, the Arrow alum talked to us about how inclusive SDCC is, what are his favorite con events, and shared with us his love of toys (which include Funkos, LEGOs, Planet of the Apes, superheroes and more). Barrowman also revealed which toy collection(s) he would grab first in case of a fire and which superhero he would like to see get a musical adaptation a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and the role he'd personally like to play. All we can say is... Make it so, DC!
