Almost as important as their powers is a superhero's costume. The clothes make the man (or woman) and all that. Things to consider in outfitting your hero are: the costume's ability to disguise its hero's secret identity, translation of powers to costume, color schemes, team affiliation, (theoretical) practicality, and, of course, looking awesome.

Many of these heroes, in addition to being clad in some of the most iconic suits in the world, have had so many other, supplemental costumes. For example, you see the Spider-Man costume or even a part of it, mask, chest, anything and it's instantly recognizable. Beyond that main outfit, the black suit is almost just as well known. In comics, sometimes an alternate suit can become a fan favorite, and be made canon too.

All of these variations have served their individual purposes throughout the years. These are the best alternate costumes of the Marvel Superheroes. Vote up the best alternate Marvel comic book character costumes.
