7 Coolest Superhero Movie Costumes of All-Time
A bad superhero costume can mean disaster for a movie.
When your superhero first goes out to stop crime in their outfit, it’s so much more powerful if the mere sight of them makes you drop your jaw. It's the one thing that separates the superhero genre from the standard action film, and some films use it to great effect.
1. Hit-Girl, From "Kick-Ass"
Hit-Girl just nails the fashion sense of a 11-year-old girl with the bright purple wig, bodysuit, and plaid skirt, accented by a bright pink utility belt. She looks like a little girl playing dress-up. But she's definitely not playing around.
2. Rorschach, From "Watchmen"
While some actors struggled within their superhero duds, Jackie Earle Haley, who lacks an intimidating stature, thrived, delivering a powerful performance thanks in part to the dark mystique Rorschach's ever-shifting mask and loner wardrobe provided.
3. Captain America, From "Captain America: The First Avenger"
This star-spangled suit makes it clear Cap's fighting for the red, white, and blue, but it'll also keep him well-armed and protected in a fire fight. This practical design actually trumped the more traditional outfit Cap wore in "The Avengers."
