Golden Age

Albert Pratt / The Atom

Albert Pratt known by superhero alias The Atom was a small but mighty Golden Age hero who premiered in DC Comics in the 1940s.  Al was a scientist and athlete proficient in hand-to-hand combat.  His character later went on to acquire atomic strength (which coincided with a modernized costume that covered more skin than the original bare-legged version).  While he has undergone several iterations, most of his costumes include bright yellow, blue, and red, making him a colorful choice for those interested in a bold look.

Wesley Dodds (Sandman)

Wesley Dodds is the real name of DC superhero Sandman.  Originally introduced in 1939, Dodds uses a gun that administers a powerful sleeping gas to subdue criminals.  He then sprinkles them with sand and leaves them for the police.  In his original (and most iconic) iteration, Dodds wore a green business suit, brown fedora, and purple cape.  Sandman’s look has been updated on several occasions, including a version with a more menacing-looking gas mask and a yellow suit from the mid-eighties until the early 2010s.  No matter which version of Dodds you choose to recreate, you’ll need a brown fedora and a futuristic-looking gun with a wide, round barrel to help you put crime to sleep.
