The Creation Supernatural Convention in Las Vegas continued on Saturday with fan favorite Misha Collins taking the stage for a Q&A session.

One of the fans told Collins that William Shatner (Star Trek) had commented on her twitter post of her photo op with him saying it would be better if Collins wasn’t in the photo.  Collins and Shatner have an ongoing twitter battle, all in good fun of course, and of course Collins could not pass up the opportunity to take shots back at Shatner.  With the audience egging him on, Collins tweeted a selfie to Shatner during the panel.  Audience members started monitoring Shatner’s tweets and when he tweeted that it would be better if Collins, who Shatner calls Cuppers, wasn’t in the photo, Collins enlisted the help of the audience to send Shatner a photo of the entire audience flipping off Shatner.

One fan asked if he had any teachers or adults who influenced him while growing up and Collins got choked up when talking about a special teacher that really inspired him when he was ten years old.  The teacher paid attention to Collins and encouraged him when he was going through a period in his life when no one else really paid attention to him.  He also spoke about a former camp director that lived in his neighborhood that took Collins and his brother under his wing and taught them how to build things, took them out to eat and more.  Collins spoke about these being really special to him as his family was going through a rough patch.  His family was living in a tent and he was being raised by a single mother and Collins said that this man was very influential in his childhood.

All kidding aside, Collins talked about his charity, Random Acts, whose mission it is to conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time.  The organization encourages people to do a random act of kindness for someone and held a drive for Help of Southern Nevada during the convention collecting socks, diapers and other items to donate to the charity.
