Superman: Ranking Every Comic Costume Worst To Best

Which of Superman's amazing costumes from the comics is the best of them all?

DC Comics

Superman is one of the most iconic characters on the planet, and that has a lot to do with the familiar "S" on his chest. For most of his early years, Superman sported the same duds he was created in, though there have been variations.

Every so often, a new version of the character pops up in the comics, or a modification is made to the costume, which sets it apart from the rest of the clothes in his super-closet. These costume changes are sometimes done for aesthetic purposes, or they are done for a specific event.

Like other comic book superheroes, Superman sometimes needs to change clothes to fight against a particular enemy or in a specific environment. When this happens, he stitches something together, suits up, and heads out to do what he does best: save the day while looking good doing it.

There have been a ton of costumes for the Man of Steel over the years, but which is the best? Is it the original or the one he wears in issue 1,000,000? There are many, but only one can be the best! This list ranks all the costumes seen in the comics with the very best at #1.
