Superheroes and Villains

Is it a bird, is it a plane?

No, it’s… your favourite superhero! Superheroes are the legends of our childhood, or for many, still the legends of their adulthood. Only a true comic nerd would appreciate the worth and value of a superhero and dress up in their best superhero or villain costume to a party. It is so difficult to decide which superhero to choose and how to not double up with other party guests. Well, first of all, it is best to decide whether you want to appear as a Marvel or DC comic character.

Marvel lovers will often opt for a Spiderman costume, the superhero bitten by a radioactive spider giving him the skills of speed, strength and powers of a spider. Others might opt for the Incredible Hulk, a big and green powerful creature often misunderstood and becoming stronger the angrier he gets. Some might decide to rock a red armoured suit like Iron Man. Young ladies might decide to dress up as Storm, the mutant with an ability to control the weather and fly. Other famous Marvel characters include Thor, Luke Cage, Black Widow, Captain America, Daredevil or Wolverine.

DC Comic supporters would most likely opt for a Batman suit, the dark knight or caped crusader is the world’s greatest detective. Just as famous is the boy who was rocketed to Earth from the planet Krypton, the Man of Steel himself, Superman. Give yourself the gift of strength, speed, flight, invulnerability, X-ray and heat vision by dressing up as Superman. And let’s all face it, the best heroine of all time is Wonder Woman with her beauty, brains and brawn. Other famous DC characters include Green Lantern, The Flash and Aquaman.

With so many options, how will you ever decide? Or will you dress up as a world class villain like the Joker or Loki instead?
