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.

Captain America

Latest Movie: The first Avenger and a team of Earth-savers most recently fought evil in May's The Avengers.
Alter-Ego Look: Shrimpy Steve Rogers wore standard beige military uniforms before a super soldier treatment gave him the muscles to fill out his ensemble.
The Superhero Look: Pure patriotism. When he wields his shield—an indestructible disc of steel and vibranium that can take out several targets in one throw—the entire military stands at attention.
Fashion Takeaway: Military + trench coats = very now.
