Tim Gunn Critiques Superhero Costumes

You might remember our recent discussion of catsuits in comic book films, but what about the wide array of superhero costumes over the decades to grace the pages of comic books? In this episode of Crazy Sexy Geeks, Project Runway fashion guru Tim Gunn gives his expert opinion on comics style.

For example, Black Canary? He prefers her without the fishnets. “Frankly as a superhero I take her much more seriously. Because she looks like she’s ready for combat. What is she ready for here, a cocktail and a roll in the hay?” And as for the catsuit, he favors Michelle Pfeiffer over Halle Berry.

  1. Very well done. I agree with almost everything you guys said. I think the topic of Nightwing could have been an episode in itself for me, but then I'm a "Wingnut" from way back in the day.

    You left out one of my favorite Spiderman costume changes though. I'd really like to have heard Tim's take on the modernized costume that he briefly wore in the late 90's for the comic, 'The Sensational Spiderman' series.
