The Spirit

The Spirit is a fictional masked crimefighter created by cartoonist Will Eisner. He’s a masked vigilante who fights crime with the blessing of the city’s police. I recommend finding a way to make your tie stick out to the side, probably by putting a wire into it.

The Phantom

The Phantom is one man in a line of crimefighters whose responsibilities are passed along from father to son. He doesn’t have any superpowers but relies on his reputation of being immortal to strike fear into criminals. He was the first superhero to start the trend of wearing a skintight costume, which unfortunately included the skintight underwear.

Superman / Clark Kent

Superman, who was born Kal-El, is sent to Earth just before the destruction of his home planet, Krypton. He gains his powers from the sun and is able to fly faster than a speeding bullet, is more powerful than a locomotive, and is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. If you’d rather not wear your underwear on the outside, then you can always dress up as Superman’s alias, Clark Kent.

Captain America

A frail Steve Rogers takes an experimental serum and becomes Captain America, a World War II hero and leader of the Avengers. As the name suggests, he’s pretty patriotic, garbing himself head to toe in the stars and stripes. Most recently, Cap has been played by actor Chris Evans.

Spider-Man

When Peter Parker gets bit by a radioactive spider on a school field trip (don’t you hate when that happens?), he develops super strength, the ability to cling to any surface, and a spidey sense. At that point, he has no choice but to build web shooters for his wrists and call himself Spider-Man.

Nightcrawler

Kurt Wagner, better known as Nightcrawler, is a mutant who has the ability to teleport and crawl on walls. He’s the son of Mystique and the demonic warlord Azazel. He spent his early years with the circus but was later recruited by the X-men.

Captain Planet

Captain Planet, he’s our hero. He’s gonna take pollution down to zero. He’s our powers magnified and he’s fighting on the planet’s side. If you don’t mind wearing your underwear on the outside then this costume’s for you.

The Powerpuff Girls
