The 13 Sexiest Superhero Costumes

The Super Hot Super Women of Comics

The old saying is “Sex Sells’ and that’s certainly true when it comes to comic books. Comic artists know this better than anyone and so to get their predominantly male audiences interested in female characters, they have long clad them in outfits that would make the average Victoria’s Secret model blush. We’ve seen the trend continue into film adaptations with the latest comic siren, The Black Widow, coming to the big screen in the form of bombshell actress Scarlett Johansson, who will play the role in Iron Man 2.

13. Phantom Lady

This babe has been fighting crime and steaming up comic pages since 1941. Her costume was the forerunner of the “less is better” attitude. There’s something comforting in knowing that your dad and grandpa drooled over the same girl…


12. Madame Mirage

This mistress of illusion is style personified. With her satiny hip high cut dress, hat and veil, she’d be just as home on a Paris fashion runway as she is taking out the bad guys over at Top Cow Comics


11. Shanna the She-Devil

Never have animal skins looked so good…not even on the animals! I’ll bet the leopards even volunteered to be draped around that body!


10. The Black Cat

Leather…lots and lots of skin-tight leather that is virtually painted on to her for a perfect fit. The sometimes hero, sometimes villain pal of Spider-Man is a hot number no matter what her current profession. Did I mention the leather?


9. Bomb Queen

With Image Comics’ loveable anti-hero, it isn’t so much about what she’s wearing, as it is about what she isn’t. Bomb Queen’s suit rarely survives a fight intact leaving her fully exposed to the residents of New Port City…and she couldn’t care less. This is a girl truly without any inhibitions!


8. Poison Ivy

These days, everyone is going Green! But Poison Ivy was already ahead of the game with her costume consisting of a few well-placed leaves and vines. She may be a villain but you have to give her a lot of credit…Her outfit is not only smoking hot, but environmentally friendly as well.


7. Wonder Woman

Ok so Wonder Woman’s one-piece may not be the most revealing in our countdown but there’s something to be said for tradition. She may be an Amazon but with the red white and blue and all those stars, she gives you a sense of patriotism that just makes you stand at attention!


6. Cassie Hack

Devils Due’s resident monster slay combines Goth with classic Catholic schoolgirl for a look that has got to drive the serial killers crazy! I mean come on, how can you concentrate on beheading pretty Cassie when she’s wearing that cute little mini-skirt?


5. Witchblade

So here we have a magical armor that form fits itself to the wearer, and our heroine uses it to cover almost nothing! Man you have to love women! But how does she move around in this stuff without chaffing?


4. Power Girl

Oh come on now! Tell me Power Girl didn’t know EXACTLY what she was doing when she cut this porthole into her costume exposing two of the greatest assets in comic book history. Seriously, how is it even fair to the poor villains who have to stare into the eye of greatness!


3. Red Sonja

Well I suppose when you decide to walk around in a bikini made of armor—very, very little armor—you had better learn how to fight. Not sure exactly what she’s trying to protect, but we can all enjoy ourselves by searching for tanlines!


2. The White Queen Emma Frost

One can go crazy with what a costume made of white lingerie suggests about this one time White Queen of the Hellfire Club. It seems like the less bad she becomes the less clothes she wears. Someone please nominate her for sainthood!


1. Vampirella

This luscious vampire was created 40 years ago by the late, great Forrest Ackerman, and she’s been making hearts--and other things—throb ever since. Her barely there costume has not changed because how can you improve upon perfection. Only the most courageous models dare to try on this outfit because baby, if you don’t have enough then you don’t have the right stuff!

After reviewing this list all I can say it getting hot in here or is it just me.

everdreaded 8/26/2009 6:28:51 AM

definitely hot..though I would have thought Lady Death would have made the list..

Salemwitch 8/26/2009 7:08:22 AM

I would agree. I was thinking the same thing about Lady Death and Purgatori

What about Ghita or Kevin Taylor's character Girl?

 Let's face it; this article could have been about the 20 or 30 Sexiest Superhero Costumes.


And on a related note, in Wonder Woman #34, while trying to come up with a disguise, Black Canary and Wonder Woman have an amusing discussion of the "second most famous bosom" in the superhero community (second after Power Girl).

I'd put in Gamora, chief assassin to Thanos, turned protector and love interest to Adam Warlock, skin tight green scales with a notoriously plunging neck line, and she's green. 

Also Psylock in the 90's.  Purple hair and blue and swimsuite, with purple sach on a dead sexy ninja body, and damn those legs.  Yeah she knows what your thinking.  It just works. 

And how did Zatanna not make the list.  Dad's top hat and jacket over web stockings.  And a cocktail waitress top.  It just works too.  Surley the kinkiest outfit to reveal so little skin. 

And yeah Lady Death.

No Votes for Modam? The chick version of Modock.

BIGGKIDD 8/26/2009 9:03:33 AM

No Catwoman how did that happen.  Gotta love Vampi getting #1 though.

Anyoner remember that Robot Chicken skit with the Juistice League members complaining aboute their evil opposites. And then Wonsder Woman's opposite showerd up wearing sleaves and pants legs and nothingh covering her torso. That woulda have been the number one if it had been a real ccomic book character.

I also remember a JLU episode where Wonder Woman was fliying Atom into the middle of a giant nano machine monster and she needed her hands free so she stuffed him between her breasts for the rest of the ride.   Now that's the only way to fly.

The best part was she didn't think twice about it,  either
