For any superhero, female, or male, their suit means everything to them. Superhero costumes need to have the charm as well as the intimidating factor. It’s not only their superpowers that define them, but it's also their appearance as well. It also has something to do with fashion. No matter how big they are, upgrading their costumes is crucial. In comics, you will see many different versions of a superhero costume, adapting to the universes or eras. These upgrades prove to be very vital for the challenges that lie ahead.
We are lucky to see superhero movies of Marvel and DC flourishing like never before. In these films, directors have made sure that the superheroes wear costumes that are influenced by the comic series. For example, we got the chance to see seven Captain America costumes, all worn by Chris Evans. The ‘greatest soldier in history’ has a variety of suits that you will notice in the Captain America movies. You will also see the epic shift from having a vintage, World War era costume, to looking like a modern day superhero.
Steve Rogers first started out as a short, average looking soldier. Just by looking at his physique, nobody would believe that he’s in the army. However, with the passion and will to become a soldier, Steve Rogers became part of an innovative project that made him the ultimate super soldier. With the help of the Super Soldier Serum, he obtained abilities that weren’t human like. He truly became a real superhero, the only one in World War II.
All he needed was a costume that would make him a standout among the rest. He had many people design his unique look, hence having seven costumes. Here are the top three Captain America costumes from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Alexandra Byrne, who worked to create the suit in both the Avengers films and Judianna Makovsky, who worked in The Winter Soldier, designed these.
This suit is officially known as ‘The S.H.I.E.L.D. Strike Stealth Suit’ that was seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As the name suggests, The S.H.I.E.L.D. created this suit. It’s dark blue in color with silver stripes on the chest with the star logo in the center. There are red lines that are featured on the side of the suit that goes all the way to his knees. The good thing about the suit is that it makes hard for Captain America to be detected by the night vision devices. This costume also enables him to attach his shield on his back rather than carrying it everywhere with him in his hand as he did in his Avengers suit. With this advantage, he can move more freely. In his right glove, he has a talker. It’s also said that he gets a different shield, which is in blue instead of red, to match his costume. This is only made for secret missions.
S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent Phil Coulson designed this costume. Captain America needed a new suit when he was chosen to co-lead a team of other superheroes to fight against other major threats. This group is known as the Avengers. His Avengers Uniform is crafted from strong fabric, and it’s a more flexible suit than the Stealth Suit above. Moreover, it’s an accurate representation of the classic costume of Captain America because of the blue and white color. The costume is light in weight that helps him move more freely and quickly. It’s more of a modern day look, but the only disadvantage in this costume is that there’s no place for him to keep his shield. As the Stealth Suit consisted of an open-ear helmet, this one doesn’t.
Tony Stark would be so proud to have a costume named after him. This is the Tony Star Avengers Uniform designed by none other than the man himself, Tony Stark. Of course, if a tech-geek like Tony invents anything, it has to be one of the most highly advanced things in the world. This costume from Avengers: Age of Ultron looks upgraded and more vibrant. You can see that it has good features and the color. Tony stuck to the traditional color of the USA flag and added gadgets like a magnetic gauntlet so that Captain America can easily attach his shield. Not only this, but he can even summon his shield. It’s definitely a cool costume that makes Captain America look very trendy.
We will see Captain America again, and he will be wearing a brand new costume. It’s somewhat similar to one he wore in the last movie. His latest movie is what all the fans were eagerly waiting for, Captain America: Civil War (see Civil War Jacket). Two of the biggest names in Marvel, Iron Man and Captain America, will go toe to toe to resolve a dispute that becomes into something huge. The Avengers are split up into teams, with Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Falcon, and Agent Sharon Carter on Captain America’s side and, War Machine, Black Widow, Vision, and Black Panther on Iron Man’s side.
Don’t forget to watch this in theaters on May 6, 2016.
