Superhero's are absolutely everywhere we go. Whether it's comics, TV, movies or even games, they have completely taken over. One essential part of a superhero is the costume. Many directors/artists have their own take on costumes, but I decided to count down the definitive Top 10 superhero costumes. This article is sure to spark debate between fan-boys so I must say this is my opinion. This is excluding villains. I'll save that for another time.
An assassin on DC's side that has quite the bada!s cotume that has many different interpretations but always has some key elements like the orange/black mask. His suit is always intimidating and has recently been in the hit TV show Arrow receiving mixed opinions.
9. Booster Gold
Another DC character that has a costume that isn't known that well outside comics. The blue and gold colors look great together with many other cool features like a Captain Amerincan-esque star in the centre and of course the gold visors he wears.
8. The Fantastic Four
The well-known blue spandex suits are nothing new to us from being used to them in the movies. The matching blue costumes are pretty cool despite the cheesy ones from the movies (above). This movie will be rebooted soon and I hope the costumes get justice.
7. Iron Man
By now everybody knows this mechanical suit that Tony Stark wears in the movies even though they change in some movies. This suit used to look pretty bad when the comics first came out but since the movies have been out they have all been pretty damn cool. The whole internet loves this guy so I'm awaiting the "he should be up higher" comments.
6. The Flash
Simple and stay the same and you get The Flash. It really is an amazing suit that just about everybody knows despite him not being on the big screen. His costume in the latest TV show coming out soon looks great. It was hard to get wrong anyway.

A popular hero that deserves a well-done movie has so much potential for as great suit on the big screen. Affleck's costume was okay, but maybe a bit too out-dated at this stage. Marvel are planning on making a Daredevil TV show where we will see a new version of the costume.
Not an everyday name to some people but an amazing costume all the same. The dark black and very bright blue look amazing together. He hasn't had a movie role yet but costumes in Arkham CIty and comics look great. A real slick costume.
Your friendly neighbor Spider-Man has an extremely iconic costume matching the red/blue. I love this one and I especially loved the ones in the Sam Raimi trilogy. The new one is pretty good too! It's worth looking at all the different versions of his costume.
The dark knight is an intimidating hero. His fighting style and gritty voice make him tough, but his dark costume is one feature that's sure to scare all his foes. There have been many incarnations of this wonderful costume but the general Batman costume is as cool as they get.
I must say it wasn't easy picking the man of steel over Batman, but this costume is just too good. It barely changes over history and still looks perfect. It's about as iconic as costumes get. It's patriotic and shows everything superhero's stand for.... Hope.
