(This isn’t exactly fair: as EW’s Lynette Rice noted a few weeks ago, an earlier Comic-Con featured a screening of Orson Welles’ Othello.) Angry die-hard comics fans have something to be happy about today, though: Summit Entertainment has just released their Comic-Con schedule, and in a surprising move, the Twilight franchise will not be making an appearance on the panels.

Which means: no more tweeny-boppers wandering around in glittery-white makeup wearing T-shirts that say “Team Jasper” or “Team Riley” or whatever. What’s a hater to do? Not to worry, PopWatchers, at Comic-Con there’s always something to complain about. We’ve analyzed the field and come up with the five things that will be annoying you at this year’s Comic-Con; take a poll after the jump.
