Marvel

Squirrel Girl (real name Doreen Green) is an unlikely superhero, who possesses the ability to communicate with squirrels. Surprisingly, she’s able to use this so-called superpower to defeat major supervillains. She sometimes works solo, but has also teamed up with the Avengers and the New Warriors.

Captain Marvel

When Earth is caught in the middle of an intergalactic conflict between two alien factions, it’s Captain Marvel to the rescue.

Thanos from Avengers

Thanos

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin) is a powerful Titan warlord who seeks the Infinity Stones to complete the Infinity Gauntlet, which would give him enough power to wipe out half of the universe, including many of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

Sabretooth from X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Sabretooth from X-Men Origins: Wolverine

In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), real name Victor Creed, is a mutant with animal-like abilities like retractable claws, regenerative healing, and enhanced senses… much like his younger half-brother Wolverine.

Silk

Silk

Silk (real name Cindy Moon) is a Korean-American superhero who first made an appearance in the Spider-Man comics. Cindy gains her superpowers after she gets bitten in the ankle by the same irradiated spider that bites Peter Parker on a school field trip.

Marvel's Hela

Hela from Thor: Ragnarok

Not to be confused for the Norse Hel, Marvel’s Hela is a woman all her own. Played by Cate Blanchett she is the goddess of death, Odin’s former executioner and the oldest child he kept secret from both Thor and Loki. His death released her from her exile and triggered Ragnarok, the destruction of Asgard. Her arrival costs Thor his hammer, the Asgardians their home, and Hela her own life. Despite her end, she is still considered one of Marvel’s most dynamic villains.

The focal point of Hela’s look is the bodysuit and cape. It’s iconic and hard to recreate, which makes it lucky that there is a premade version on Amazon. Black boots and a black wig finish the core of the costume. Black nail polish, black eye shadow, and her iconic swords are the final touches you’ll need before you’re ready to rock a world of your own.

April 2021 Update: A big thank you to the commenters for their discussion that led to a costume update.

Drax the Destroyer

Drax the Destroyer

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a powerful alien whose family was slaughtered by Ronan and Thanos. He joins Peter Quill and vows revenge on them along with Gamora. For the costume, use the gray body paint to touch up parts that aren’t covered by the costume, such as your neck and hands.

Mantis

Mantis

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) uses are telepathic powers to sense others’ emotions when she makes physical contact with them. Despite this ability she remains innocent and rather naive, which makes sense given that she’s spent most of her life in solitude with Peter Quill’s father Ego. Who would have guessed the antennas would be sold at Hot Topic of all places?

Laura Kinney (X-23)

Laura Kinney (X-23)

In Logan, Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) is a mysterious young mutant who is revealed to be a clone made from Wolverine’s blood. She might be an 11-year old girl wearing a rainbow tee and colorful sunglasses, but make no mistake that she is X-23, a deadly assassin created to be the perfect killing machine.
