Superman Costume Ideas

There’s obvious appeal for The Man of Steel

Superman is more than a comic-book hero—he is an American cultural icon. The Man of Steel was originally created by two teenagers from Cleveland, Ohio, and he first appeared in Action Comics #1 in June of 1938. Since then he has fought evildoers through thousands of adventures in the comics, television and on the silver screen. Originally from the planet Krypton, Superman’s powers are derived from the earth’s yellow sun, which empowers him with superior strength, flight and near invincibility to anything but kryptonite. Clad in blue with his trademark red cape, Superman’s appearance is iconic and so is his costume.

Which Type of Superman Are You?

Clark Kent

Even Superman can’t spend all of his time fighting crime, so when he’s not flying through the air, he’s hiding as Clark Kent, reporter for the Daily Planet. Being disguised as Kent allows Superman to stay up to date with everything that’s going on. When the need for a hero is too great, Superman himself is always just a phone booth away.

"My father always told me I was sent here to save mankind. Maybe this is my true destiny."


Fly to your next party in these classic Superman duds from BuyCostumes. The blue, muscular body suit, the red boots and cape and, of course, the famous crest across the chest. It’s all here so make your look super, and you’ll be receiving compliments faster than a speeding bullet.
