Comic books thrive on bright colors, exciting action, and awesome costumes. You can tell a lot about a hero or a villain by their super garb.

We know the design and illustrations that go into making up our favorite comic heroes is an art form. Likewise, the costume designers who construct tangible, wearable designs from their own imaginations is also an art.

These are those artists who create magic with their hands and sewing machines — these are the best Marvel costume adaptation and great costumes from Marvel movies and Marvel TV shows.


  • After the debacle of Wade Wilson's appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the solo Deadpool movie set out to stick to the spirit of Marvel's most irreverent psychopath. Not only did Deadpool break the fourth wall and crack wise just as Wade Wilson should, but he also sported a surprisingly comics-accurate costume, complete with expressive digital eye action.

    Iron Man — The Avengers, Iron Man Et Al

    Every iteration of the Iron Man armor is not only incredibly cool but somehow incredibly believable. We all totally bought a flying, laser shooting, human-piloted suit of armor for four, going on five movies now.

    Captain America — Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    His S.H.I.E.L.D. suit from the comics blends in perfectly with the real world. In our world, this doesn't look out of place in any way. A welcomed change from the very tricky stars and stripes suit that never quite looks right in 3-D.

    Thor — Thor: Dark World

    A literal god with a red cape, metal sleeves, large, chest orbs, and a quasi-viking helmet looking great on screen was simply incredible.

  • One of the best most recent costumes seen on film. Buck Barnes returns to reek havoc on his former friend dressed like this, and it's straight out of the comics.
