She-Hulk

She-Hulk is a superhero from the Marvel comics. By day, she’s Jennifer Walters, a lawyer working in Los Angeles and cousin of Bruce Banner. When he visited Jennifer in town, agents of a crime boss named Nick Trask shot and wounded her. Realizing she was going to die, Bruce volunteered for the blood transfusion and committed her to a hospital. The agents returned to attack, but the sense of danger activated the gamma radiation in the blood. Jennifer transformed into She-Hulk and used her newfound super strength to defeat them. Like Bruce, she can be intelligent as both Jennifer and She-Hulk. She briefly joined the Avengers and replaced The Thing in the Fantastic Four.

His suit is always green with yellow markings on the chest. You can use fabric paint to get the exact markings you want so that you can choose which costume variation to go with.

His costumes also have yellow boots and yellow gloves as well as wings of some kind that attach under the arms, along the sides, and down the legs. These can be replicated using a large shawl such as the one pictured above. Older variations of Banshee also have him smoking a long-stemmed pipe, though this accessory fell out of use in the ’90s.

X-23 from the X-Men

X-23 from the X-Men Comics

X-23 is a genetic clone of the famous Canadian X-Man Wolverine, successfully created in a lab by scientist Dr. Sarah Kinney after twenty-two failed attempts. Her first-ever appearance in X-Men lore was the X-Men: Evolution TV series, but was welcomed into the comic book universe with the NYX comics, which explained her origin story in a grittier fashion than the children’s cartoon before it. X-23 then entered the Marvel-Fox cinematic universe in the form of a young Mexican child in James Mangold’s Logan, but her teenage/young adult persona from the comics can be just as fun to cosplay.
