Geekdom has grown rapidly in the past few years, extending beyond comic shelves and hitting the apparel market. Brands such as WeLoveFine and Her Universe have made an effort to incorporate geek culture into their collections and introduce trendy apparel for every type of fandom. With Hero Mode, ComicsAlliance hopes to offer you a selection of the best geek-themed apparel for your wardrobe, inspired by your favorite characters.

The recent movie X-Men: Apocalypse boasts an ensemble superhero cast that puts even Captain America: Civil War to shame. While the film received mixed reviews (my thoughts are pretty divided as well), there were some definitive highlights. Sophie Turner's Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan's Cyclops, and Kodi Smit McPhee's Nightcrawler were fantastic additions to the newer generation of mutants. And once again, Evan Peters rocked the role of Quicksilver.

The X-Men could claim to be the best comic ensemble group of all time. Created by writer and titan Stan Lee and artist and visionary Jack Kirby in 1963, the misfit team has offered some charged commentary about race, class, and otherness, and has most other teams beat when it comes to women, persons of color, and characters on the LGBTQ spectrum --- though it also has room to grow, of course.

There are of fan favorites and memorable characters in both the cinematic and comic lineup, so when it comes to X-Men apparel and collectibles, the options are vast; there's a fandom for every almost every individual X-Men member. Whichever character is your mutant of choice, you're bound to find some gems in out latest Hero Mode collection.
