Super-Stylish Superheroes of Summer examines the comic (and not-so-comic) fashion of Batman, Spider-Man, and other costumed crime fighters.

July 19, 2012

With the blockbuster success of the The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man—and the unavoidable hubbub surrounding The Dark Knight Rises—this is the unofficial summer of the superhero. We looked at the fashion of six major players—alter egos included—and gleaned style advice from each.


Latest Movie: The Dark Knight Rises, in theaters July 20.
The Alter-Ego Look: From stylish suits to tailored tuxedos, Bruce Wayne is always impeccably polished and rarely without his favorite accessory—a gorgeous woman.
The Superhero Look: Indestructible layers of flexible Kevlar, electromagnetic wings, and a smorgasbord of waist-secured weapons.
Fashion Takeaway: If you have great abs, show them off; if you don't, build them into your suit.
