Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld

In the comic Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, Princess Amethyst is orphaned at a young age and taken to Earth to be raised in safety. Upon her return to Gemworld, she discovers that not only is she a princess, but that she has powerful magical powers.

Black Canary

The Black Canary’s fighting skills must be impressive if she’s able to defeat criminals in fishnet stockings. Having a Sonic Scream probably helps. Real name Dinah Drake, she’s also known for being a part of the Justice League and for being romantically involved with the Green Arrow.

Aquaman

Aquaman hasn’t gotten much screen time like the other DC Comics superheroes but he’ll finally make an appearance in Batman v Superman. As his name suggests, Aquaman has telepathic control over sea life and can manipulate water to his advantage.

Robin

As Batman’s sidekick, Robin helps defend Gotham against criminals like the Joker, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman. He later branches out on his own as Nightwing. Regardless of his superhero identity, he sticks to what he likes, which is a whole lot of spandex.

Superman / Clark Kent

Superman, who was born Kal-El, is sent to Earth just before the destruction of his home planet, Krypton. He gains his powers from the sun and is able to fly faster than a speeding bullet, is more powerful than a locomotive, and is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. If you’d rather not wear your underwear on the outside, then you can always dress up as Superman’s alias, Clark Kent.

Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy, who was once known as botanist Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley, uses her knowledge of plants to produce toxins and mind-controlling pheromones to help her get away with her crimes. Together with Harley Quinn, they become one of Batman’s most powerful foes.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is an Amazonian warrior princess, who possess superhuman powers and superior combat skills. With her Lasso of Truth and indestructible bracelets she fights those who seek to destroy the Amazon.

Nightwing

Dick Grayson adopts the identity of Nightwing after outgrowing his position as Batman’s sidekick Robin. Like his mentor, Nightwing’s parents were murdered by a mobster in Gotham when he was just a young boy.

Batman

Batman (Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, or Adam West, depending on your age) is the secret identity assumed by billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, driven by the murder of his parents. For this costume, we recommend you upgrade the mask, gloves, boots, and cape — basically everything except the chest and belt.

Raven

Raven is a half-demon, half-human being who joins the Teen Titans. She uses her powers of teleportation, astral projection, and empathic healing to protect Jump City from various villains, which includes her father Trigon. This costume will require a bit of DIY to replicate her cape pin and jeweled sleeves in addition to modifying the necklace into a belt.
