She has an on again-off again romantic fling with Batman, and together they have Damian Wayne, aka Robin.

Alex Danvers from Supergirl

Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) is the loyal older sister of Kara Zor-El, also known as Supergirl. Alex could have easily felt stifled in the shadow of her superpowered sibling, but she’s embraced her unique accomplishments and really come into her own as a fellow superhero. In early episodes of Supergirl, Alex’s fitted black garb and holster belts evoked a Black Widow-esque vibe, but the character and costume have both evolved.

Barbara Minerva / Cheetah from Wonder Woman 1984

In the Wonder Woman 1984 movie, Barbara Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig) is an insecure scientist who befriends Diana.  After being exposed to a mystical force, Barbara eventually transforms into Cheetah, arch enemy of Wonder Woman.  Barbara’s look evolves almost as much as the character.  From her frumpy 80s style at the outset of the film, to the sexy animal prints she wears later, there is a lot of room to have fun with the era.  Barbara’s fully evolved Cheetah form looks like a humanoid cat, so some adaptations to a standard leopard or cheetah Halloween costume can make it look more intimidating and better suited to the character.

Batman from The Batman Who Laughs

Batman from The Batman Who Laughs

People who think they know Batman won’t know what to make of The Batman Who Laughs. Hailing from a dark dimension he is an almost unstoppable supervillain bent on plunging the world into darkness. Whoever he kills or maims along the way is just a bonus as far as he is concerned.

This costume requires some specialty pieces and is a very warm costume to wear. You will need the custom helmet (which the creator assures can be seen through), a goth jacket with high shoulders and straps across the chest, a tight black undershirt, leather pants, leather boots, and a few bat-themed weapons. Bring those pieces together and you too can be the Batman Who Laughs!
