Dollar Bill from Watchmen

Dollar Bill, real name William Brady, was a member of the Minutemen, the first team of superheroes in the Watchmen universe.  A corporate superhero sponsored by a bank, William was an exceptional athlete, but his life was cut tragically short when his cape got caught in a revolving door when he tried to stop a bank robbery and he was shot at point-blank range.  Dollar Bill’s costume consists of red, white, and blue pieces.  The blue unitard can be layered underneath red shorts, gloves, and socks, and then paired with a red cape.  To get his iconic dollar sign insignia, use a little white fabric paint on the blue suit.  Then, you can glue or sew white stars onto the bodysuit and cape.
