Mashable’s Spider-Man Infographic Attempts To List Every Spider-Man Costume Ever, But Um, Actually…

Spider-Man infographic, via Mashable

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters now and an X-Men movie just around the corner, we are once again in the midst of the summer superhero movies, and that can mean only one thing: It's Infographic Season! Yes, we are once again at the mercy of those easily digestible fact sheets with slightly dubious information, designed to go viral just like some horrifying apocalyptic disease created in a lab by a mad scientist.

Oh c'mon, I'm kidding. But really, when you put something up and claim that it's "Every Costume Spider-Man Has Ever Worn," like Mashable did this week, you're just asking for some dork to come along and correct you. And today, my friends, I am that dork.

Ask Chris #194: Building A Better Superhero Costume

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: What do you think is the essence of making a great iconic costume? -- @thenoirguy

A: With comics being a visual medium and all, especially one that's dominated by a genre marked by its own goofy language of symbolism and iconography, I think about superhero costumes pretty often. I mean, I cannot count the number of times I have written the words "Batman's Batman-Shaped Kneepads" over the past three years, but that said, I'll admit that I might not be the best person to answer this question. As Erica Henderson (artist of Subatomic Party Girls and the Ask Chris logo above) pointed out, I'm not an artist. Then she went ahead and answered the question, telling me that "It's pretty simple, iconic is something that's quick and easy to recognize. that's why nobody talks about Cable's costume."

Listen, Erica, I don't know what circles you run in, but I talk about Cable's costume a lot.

Wonder Woman Seems To Be Getting New Duds In Upcoming ‘Justice League War’ Animated Feature

Justice League War

 

Though Justice League War is the first of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation's features to adapt a storyline from the New 52, it seems Wonder Woman will be getting a unique new look rather than donning Jim Lee's DC Comics design. In an image tweeted by PR professional Gary Miereanu, Wonder Woman (voiced by actress Michelle Monaghan) can be seen chatting with Steve Trevor over ice cream cones in a sleeveless suit with armbands, a higher-than-traditional neckline, and a slightly darker color scheme (more navy and crimson rather than brighter blues and reds). You can see what you think of Diana's upcoming Justice League War look -- or at least one of them? -- after the cut.
