The Super Megafest fan convention in Framingham wasn’t all about science fiction movies and comic book heroes. Yes, there were cosplayers in costume and appearances by stars such as Denise Crosby from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “The Walking Dead,” Lindsay Wagner from “The Bionic Woman,” and Jake Lloyd who played a young Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.” But there also were throwback stars at the weekend event, such as pop legend Debbie Gibson, Hulk Hogan, and Aileen Quinn (she played “Annie” in the 1982 film). Gibson took a moment on Sunday to pose for a portrait with another Megafest VIP, “Sharknado” and “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor Ian Ziering.
