Ten years ago today, Marvel Studios heralded its grand cinematic universe with the arrival of Iron Man. We’ve spent a decade watching the rise and fall of Marvel’s mightiest heroes and villains, but we’ve also spent a decade judging their fashion choices each movie. So, without further ado, here’s our favorite heroic…
Scott Free is many things. He is Mister Miracle, master escape artist. He is a New God, raised in the hellfires of Darkseid’s Apokolips. He is currently the Highfather, ascendant ruler and co-general of New Genesis and its armies. He’s a new Dad. But he is also this: a lowkey casual style thought leader.
When you think of Superman’s costume, what do you think of first? The cape? Fair. The S-Shield? Good one. But you probably also think of red undies, proudly worn outside the blue suit instead of, well, under it. They’ve been gone for a while, and are making a triumphant return soon... but they may not be here for long.
Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, DRAGON. Gucci brought the Mother of Dragons to the runway at this year’s Fall/Winter Show during Milan Fashion Week. Because... fashion.
I mean, when else are you going to wear what looks like a pair of felt shorts, a matching pair of fabric gauntlets, and a giant shirt with the Blue Ranger’s helmet printed on it?
Look how happy she is in that coat make from the skins of the universe’s fastest furry reproducer! That could be you. You could be a hero to the Klingon Empire in that thing.

Ashley Eckstein’s Her Universe clothing line has just revealed a new wave of Marvel-heroine inspired outfits, but this dress based on Peggy Carter’s look? The best. Easily.
Whether you plan to rule over Atlantis, or just the neighborhood pool, these crowns by artist Chelsea Shiels will complete your water-based royalty ensemble.
You probably haven’t even packed away the sunscreen yet, but it’s already time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear to holiday parties come December. The tacky sweater is always en vogue, but everything is better when you can incorporate Star Wars into the festivities.
We’re big fans of The Vision’s fashion sense here on io9, but what were his best comic book outfits? For the dedicated follower of synthezoid fashion, Brian Cronin over at Comic Book Resources has collected the Vision’s finest bits of wardrobe selection throughout his comic book history, and it’s fantastic.
David Bowie wasn’t the only icon we lost in the past few days. André Courrèges, the indelible Parisian fashion designer who helped to define the Space Age, also died late last week. Courrèges’ designs formed a huge part of what we think of as “futuristic” sixties fashion, and our ideas of what people would wear in…
The San Francisco Opera is doing a production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute starting tomorrow, and the costumes are this astonishing late-1980s fantasia that just makes me want to watch classic MTV for the next 10 hours.
We’re pretty obsessed with the costumes from Star Trek, both the original series and the later iterations. After all, Trek has a long and proud record of pushing the fashion envelope, from its military pajamas to its alien lingerie. Here’s a look inside a stunning new book about Star Trek’s greatest costumes.
Attack of the Butterfly Woman | This is either the greatest photo ever, or the most insane—or both. This was taken outside the Nathaniel Paul fashion show, during New York Fashion Week.

DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate.
