List Rules Vote up your favorite suits for the Man of Tomorrow!

Since his start in Action Comics #1 back in 1938, Superman has been one of the most popular DC Comics characters of all time. In the 75+ years he's been around, his costume has had many variations in films, TV shows, and in the comics. 

Every comic book illustrator had their own unique take on the Man of Steel, changing up the colors, the textures, and even the iconic "S" on his chest. Some changes were better than others, but which ones are the ones you liked the most?

This is your chance to vote for the best Superman costumes. Do you prefer the classic red and blue, or the slightly modernized Alex Ross version? Do you like Man of Steel's suit more than the classic one worn by Christopher Reeves? Make sure to vote up all your favorites, and vote down the ones you think would get him kicked out of a fashion show.

The New 52 costume mirrors the classic but with some modifications. No more external red undies, more texture in the suit and cuffs, and a red belt. Overall, it's much sleeker and more modern.

Though, very similar to the costume he wore in Man of Steel, Henry is donning a new costume with some changes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. See if you can spot the differences.

This is a gorgeous reinterpretation of the Superman costume. The cape is more of a robe, and the colors are completely different, but it's still clearly the Man of Steel.
