As long as we have "favorite" threads going, let's get really subjective. Favorite male and female superhero costumes. One of each, no villains.

Mine: Batman (Neal Adams/Jim Aparo) and Black Canary (Golden Age).

Antman - original version, love the helmet, love the canisters on the belt,
love the colors, love the design. I get a real kick out of it every time I see it.

Storm - really enjoyed Cockrum's designs on the new X-men. Storm's
costume was an instant "classic".

••

Harrumph! Having "designed" the Dark Phoenix version, I am naturally
curious as to why you'd think a preference for the original would be
"obvious". (Mostly, this is informed by knowing that the original Phoenix
costume was not colored as Dave intended -- he wanted the green to be
white -- so it never looked right to me.)

I added that because I couldn't help thinking that someone might feel compelled to "correct" me by saying that Phoenix was a villain.

By the way, its not a preference for the original over the Dark version. That one might be up there if you had made this thread about villains.

Favourite Male Costume:  Ant-Man

Favourite Female Costume: Spider-Woman (classic Jessica Drew version)

Not that there aren't dozens of other costumes that I also think are wonderfully designed.  I pick these two just because they have just always stood out to me.  The choice of colors, how they're distributed over the figure, etc.

My favorites:

Red Robin (Dick Grayson) from KINGDOM COME


I love this design, and the way it combines elements of Robin and Batman.  Its comparatively simple design is evocative of classic costumes of the Golden Age.

Wonder Girl (Donna Troy):


Simple, sleek, sexy, and still practical; reminiscent of Wonder Woman without being a knockoff.

Wonder Girl...Simple, sleek, sexy, and still practical; reminiscent of Wonder Woman without being a knockoff.

It really is the most perfectly feminine and yet warrior-like female costume, plus it's red with high boots, completing a picture of an adventure hero even more than a superhero.

 

This is an ad by Gil Kane...but who designed the revised Wonder Girl costume?

the Original Captain Marvel's costume with the military-style flap on the
tunic, and...

...the Huntress's costume (Helena Wayne)--a nice melding together of
Batman and Catwoman's looks

Does Silver Surfer's appearance counts as a costume ?

If not, I would go for Spider-Man

As for girls, hinhinhin, and as a teen I would have said the shortest skirt
the better !

Today I would go for the Phoenix
