Top 10 Alternate Superhero Costumes

​Halloween is on its way and it is time to get those costumes ready.  And, who likes to play dress-up more than super heroes.  Flying around in their cute, flashy, little tights.  Looking all colourful and trying to out do their friends cool new suits.  While some heroes just get a modern version of their same colours and styles, there are some who try something new all the time (ah-hem Spiderman).  Lets have a look at ten of the best alternate super hero costumes shall we…

10. Mr. Fixit

Who doesn’t love a hero in a suit? And, the Hulk looks real good in his pinstripes.  For a time when Hulk was detached from his alter ego Bruce Banner, he dressed up as this stylish hero for hire.  A definite improvement from his purple cut-offs, and just knocked out the battle armor of Planet Hulk.

9. 90’s punk Storm

When Ororo went through her punk phase, she went all out.  Rocking a pure white mohawk and leather pants, she absolutely stood out from goodie two shoes like Cyclops.  The outfit made her look as dangerous as her abilities.  I wonder how Black Panther feels about this phase in his wife’s life.

8.  Future Foundation

After Mister Fantastic gets discouraged with science and its modern application, he creates a new group of talented minds to face the worlds problems.  Expanding from the original four, the Future Foundation features members like Spiderman, Doctor Doom, Ant-Man and Dragon Man.  Each honoured with handsome new white tights, that somehow, probably by science-power, stay clean all the time.

7. Pink Batman

Because he looks so cute, dammit.

6. Wonder Woman Spy Outfit

A big change from showing as much skin and cleavage as possible, you have to admit Wonder Woman looks pretty good in her white tights.  There are just some things a woman cant do in a gold bra, leaving Diana with this alternate outfit that can still show off her perfect figure.

5. X-Force Wolverine

Again, sometimes your everyday costume may be a little too flashy for the night life.  When Wolverine joins the X-Force, he makes the right choice to change out of his blues and yellows, for this much more fitting black and dark grey.

4. Night Owl Arctic Suit

Night Owl is a man prepared and a man of style.  When forced to chase down Ozymandias into Antarctica, Night Owl has a suit for that.  Donning his white, fur outfit that literally makes him look like an owl.

3. Pirate Deadpool

Leave it to the merc with a mouth to come to a costume party and stand out.  There was a time where Deadpool ran around doing his thing dressed up in a pirate outfit.  Really, is anybody surprised?

2. Black Suit Spiderman

When Peter Parker opens his super-closet, he has choices.  Ranging from steel armor to a Tony Stark knock off.  But, this classic black costume has been a stand out fan favorite since its ridiculous origin story.  The sleek outfit is an obvious second jersey behind one of the greatest costumes in the superhero community.

1. Hulkbuster Iron Man

It is one thing to change a colour scheme or add some protection, but nothing beats a spare costume that can face down the strongest there is.  Who wouldn’t want battle armor this impressive in there walk-in?  The fan favorite alternate was even featured in the latest Avengers film.  If only it came in green…

  3. I’ll always have a soft spot for Spidey’s black costume. That’s what he was wearing when I first started reading his comics as a lil’ four year old.

        well that was a different era , and the rainbow suit had atleast a purpose (distract and save robin) regardless of how absurd said purpose was

    I would go for 90s punk Storm. That would make a really sexy costume with a badass hairdo.
