If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Superheroes are a dime a dozen in comics, but there’s only one Superman! Not only is Superman the first and greatest superhero, he also set the standard for what a superhero was and could be. So it's not really surprising that over the years Marvel has tried to come up with their own version of the Man of Steel. Obviously, some are a little more super than others.

Today's polls may feature five relatively recent designs, but many of them pay tribute to characters and costumes that came before, from Superman to Martian Manhunter. So do these looks mark the pinnacle of costume design, or contemporary fashion faux pas?
