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.

Iron Man

Latest Movie: Iron Man joined fellow superheroes Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye in this summer's blockbuster The Avengers.
The Alter-Ego Look: Playboy-genius Tony Stark swaps his couture ties for cotton T-shirts when his never-ending nights turn into long days in the lab.
The Superhero Look: Once powered by a poisonous palladium core, he was forced to reinvent his interlocking exoskeleton by creating a new element, which fuels the armor's arsenal of weaponry.
Fashion Takeaway: Proper fit is key whether you wear a suit or an exoskeleton.
