Superhero costumes for Halloween (and a few villain ones)

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's you and your chums looking rad in superhero costumes this Halloween...

Superheroes are so hot right now. There’s nothing that film studios are serving up more of at the moment than caped crusaders, loveable antiheroes and other colourfully-clothed icons ripped straight from the comic book page.

But what about me and you and the other everymen? When do we get to dress up in silly outfits?

Well, outside of Comic Cons, cosplay events, themed parties and Fathers4Justice demonstrations, the only answer I can think of to that question is this: Halloween. That wonderful time of your where you can dress up as anything you like, in the name of not looking like a spoilsport at a party.  

To help you find the best superhero costumes to dazzle your fellow partygoers with this October, we’ve teamed up with our chums at Amazon to compile a list of comic book-inspired outfits from their vast stockrooms. These vary from unforgiving Spidey Morphsuits to a brilliant Wolverine costume that apes the classic 1990s cartoon’s take on his look.
