The Evolution Of Superhero Costumes

Superhero costumes have progressed faster than iPhone technology. Then again, what hasn’t? If you haven’t seen the parody video i posed this might not make sense. See it here.

Ok i’m sorry. I’ll stop making fun of Apple fans now.

Superheroes have been around for longer than most of us have been alive, and their appearances have changed pretty drastically over the years. Whilst sticking to their key elements, the advancement of technology and what can be produced has changed the way we see Superheroes today. I think the only major change is that Superman lost those iconic red underpants this year.

These are how the costumes of your favourite Superheroes have changed and evolved over the years.
