Most Accurate Comic Book Costumes
These are my top 5 picks for best comic book accurate costumes.
THIS IS ALL MY OPINION.
5. Scarlet Witch/WandaVision
Number 5 is Scarlet Witch. I love how they added the crown into the costume, because before, it didn't have it. I hope that when the show comes out they add the leggings. She was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. She made her first appearance in the X-Men #4 in 1964.
4. Iron Man/Avenges Endgame
At number 4 is Iron Man. Iron Man was one of my most favorite heros growing up. The gold was added in all the right places and combined with nanotechnology makes the best Iron Man suit. Also known as Mark 85. He was created by Stan Lee. he made his debut in March 1963 in Iron Man #1.
In the number 3 spot is Shazam. Shazam is a really cool character. But the costume is cooler. It’s really accurate and I like how in the movie costume they added glowing parts which makes it even cooler. He was created by CC Beck and Bill Parker and first appeared in February 1940.
2. Spiderman/The amazing Spiderman
Coming in number 2 is Spiderman. I basically grew up watching spiderman. This costume is the spiderman costume from the comics. I also kinda like Tobey's version of the spiderman costume, but this one Takes second place. The web head was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in August 1962.
1. Flash/The Flash
The best comic book costume is the Flash. This is a masterpiece. It has all the gold highlights in all the right places, and the gold thunderbolts in his arms and on the waist are amazing. The scarlet speedster was made by Gardner Fox in 1939.
Most movies and tv shows do the best they can to make superhero costumes the most accurate they can to the comics, with a twist of moderness. Over the years Marvel has done a great job. DC has too. Most costumes designers use old comics as inspiration. Then they improve them but keep the iconic look of the classic hero. In the movie, some costumes look really accurate to the comics, but some look as if they have nothing to do with them. Another reason why they make the costume different compared to the comics is because some costumes will look ridiculous on the big screen. There is no doubt that some costumes will look good on the pages of a comic book, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they will look good on the big screen, which is why they change them to some extent.
