Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we’re asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we’ll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.
For day three, it's the magic hour; five of the finest, flashiest, most flamboyant witch-and-wizard costumes in the business, ranging from the Gothic Lolita look of Runaways' Nico Minoru to the fishnet-and-top hat classic stage magician (with fishnets) look of Zatanna --- and not forgetting the weird robes and curlicued collar of Doctor Stephen Strange himself.
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.
This week, it's Magneto's family reunion, which involves a talking cow. Really.
Tonight's Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe special didn't blow too many minds as it preempted Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the hourlong Marvel movie commercial special did succeed in revealing concept art of two characters fans have been waiting to see for awhile. Get a look at Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver's (played by Aaron Johnson) potential costume designs from Avengers: Age of Ultron -- plus Iron Man battling the Hulk in his Hulkbuster armor -- after the cut.
Last week's Uncanny Avengers, by Rick Remender and Steve McNiven, killed off a whole bunch of characters. The last issue of Avengers Arena, by Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker, came out the same day with that book's final death tally. It was a good day for funeral directors in the Marvel universe.

Spoilers for Uncanny Avengers and Avengers Arena follow.

The speedster will reportedly be played by Aaron Johnson, who already has a superhero pedigree with his starring role in the Kick-Ass franchise. This marks the second actor to be cast in the Quicksilver role -- essentially concurrently -- as Evan Peters is set to star as the same character in Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Rumors have been swirling around for a few months that Elizabeth Olsen, the non-twin who has earned some major cred in movies such as Martha Marcy May Marlene and the upcoming Oldboy remake, would be taking on the role of the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
