Most super heroes wear logos on the front of their costume which reinforces or reminds the audience who they are.
Red and Blue are popular costume colours. Colour schemes normally stay within 3 colours, e.g. Superman – Red, Blue and Gold suit.
Female Superheroes costumes are designed for sex appeal. Male super heroes are covered up but wear tight clothing to exaggerate muscle size.
Weapons vary but each have their own uniqueness about them e.g. Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth
Capes are popular and adds to the empowering image of the Super hero.
Identity is a super heroes main weakness. It must be covered up to prevent villains tracing them and their families.
Belts are great accessories for Super heroes. Especially Batman who doesn’t have powers and relies on his Utility Belt.
