Without their signature threads, superheroes are basically nothing. Sure, they still have that whole "super" and "hero" thing going for them, but what distinguishes them from one another is largely tied to their costumes. The clothing serves largely as a calling card, and serves to make them instantly recognizable both within their worlds and in ours. But sometimes, alternate costumes can be just as cool - if not cooler - than a hero's more iconic outfits. This gallery highlights some of the best alternate superhero costumes that we've seen throughout the years. Did I miss your favorite? That's what comment sections are for!

Either way, the black suit was definitely cooler than his staple red and blue threads, and came with the added bonus of making him stealthier at night. You know, because it was black.
