The 5 Best-Looking Superhero Costumes Ever Designed
Written by Agboola Sodiq
Costumes or symbols worn by superheroes are now as iconic as the heroes themselves, so it is always important they are designed with perfection.

Costumes worn by superheroes are more of an identity to the character been played, I can clearly recall the rush as a kid when i see superman costume on TV, am always excited irrespective of the actor behind the costume. It WAS Superman, period.

The nature of superhero costumes has evolved fantastically over the years. Back in the early days, it was just all about capes and tight-fitting bodysuits

Here are the 5 coolest superhero costumes that have come along on the big screen so far

5)Batman

The Batsuit (or Bat-Suit) is the costume of the superhero Batman, and it is highly advance, over the years the suit has evolved a bit but most versions of the Batsuit incorporate some form of body armor, and often night-vision, gas filters, and other aids for protection or effectiveness in combat.

It is the most recognizable items among Batman’s prized possessions in fighting crimes in Gotham City. He wears this costume both to conceal his identity, and to frighten criminals.

4)Black Panther

The Black Panther is a fictional superhero & the leader of Wakanda who recently debuted in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

While the African nation,Wakanda is known to be one of the most technologically-advanced countries on the planet, it’s also notable for its massive supply of vibranium, the same metal that Captain America’s shield is made of.

Naturally, the material is one of their key natural resources, and in King T’Challa’s case, he’s put it to good use by putting it in his Black Panther costume, which gives him one big advantage in Captain America: Civil War.

Actor Chadwick Boseman spoke in detail about the Black Panther costume’s main capability thanks to being infused with vibranium: absorbing attacks from an opponent.

He told EW:


The vibranium is a metal that is dynamic. It can change how it’s used. It’s not a liquid, but it has the ability to change shape and change form and still have its strength. … It’s not just about being durable, it has the ability to absorb energy. It’s not just like you hit it and it doesn’t take it. It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person and repel or respond to that attack. That’s part of the power.


3)Deadpool

We all know Deadpool, and he recently had a solo movie were his awesomely-beautiful red costume was unveiled. The movie was the eighth installment in the X-Men film series. The film was a massive success, grossing over $782 million worldwide and breaking numerous box office records.

From the texture of the fabric to the great balance between black and red (both colors representing death), Deadpool pretty much redefined the superhero costume by showing the world you can just take the exact suit from the comic and do nothing to mess with it.

 

2)Iron Man

Iron Man’s armor is a fictional powered exoskeleton worn by comic book superhero Tony Stark when he assumes the identity of Iron Man.

From his War Machine to his Hulk Buster, Iron Man wins the suit war based on numbers alone. And based on the simple facts that pretty much all versions of Iron Man look awesome.

The defining abilities of Stark’s armor are the jets situated in the boots and the repulsors situated in the gauntlets.

1)Spider-Man

Spider-Man is a very popular fictional superhero that appears in Marvel Comic.

The costume is blue with red gloves, boots, and  a mask. The suit has a black spider in the center of the chest and a larger red spider on the back, both of different designs. The mask has plastic lenses with a chrome covering that allow Peter to see out, but no one can see in. The lenses also protect Peter’s eyes from dust particles and the glare of the sun while he is swinging through the city.

In addition, the mask helps to conceal Peter’s identity by muffling his voice, thus making it unrecognizable to others. He also wears a twin set of web shooters on his wrists under the gloves.

The suit is known to contain a special earpiece that protects Spider-Man from the effects of Hobgoblin’s sonic attack.
