The Man of Style: 15 Superman Suits Ranked From Weakest To Strongest

The Last Son of Krypton, Superman is a superhero unlike any other. The standard considered to which all other heroes are held to in comic books, Superman forever paved the way for the medium when he first appeared in Action Comics #1. People had never seen anything like it before, with his Golden Age costume and his cape billowing in the wind as he jumped over skyscrapers. Like most things however, Superman is a character who has changed and adapted to fit the times he’s written in. With the changes come different powers, new assortments of supporting characters, weirder and stronger villains, and of course, a wide-range of different and gnarly costumes.

He is the superhero with the longest-running history, so it makes sense whenever Superman’s wardrobe is altered and/or modified. Granted, there are particular looks that never go out of fashion and remain fan-favorites, just as there are others that are met with distaste and only appear for a time before disappearing into the figurative ether. Without question, Superman has endured more costume changes and been suited in more ridiculous armors, than nearly any other comic book character. Today at CBR we’re looking at 15 of Superman’s most powerful uniforms and suits of armor!

15. CLASSIC RED AND BLUE

You can’t talk about Superman and any of the many costumes and suits of armor he’s donned over the years without first discussing his classic red and blue outfit. It might not be the flashiest or give extra powers, but it’s a look known by practically the entire world. The power to inspire is Superman’s and his costume’s greatest ability.

It was made from the cloths and blanket he was wrapped in by his parents when they put him in a rocket to escape the exploding Krypton.

In her infinite wisdom Ma Kent realized her son needed an appropriate look to go out and save the world. With a little elbow grease, she sewed together his clothes and blanket. Because it was Kryptonian in origin, Superman’s suit remained undamaged when bullets hit it and it never caught fire. It was nearly as invulnerable as the Man of Steel himself.

14. SUN ARMOR

Superman’s lead a colorful life. Part of that life revolves around both aliens and his relationship with the Sun. Though the star supplies Superman with his powers, in the early days of his career, the Last Son of Krypton was still struggling to unlock his potential. Other problems Superman wasn’t especially experienced with were kryptonite and Lex Luthor. In Superman Confidential #11, Superman is dying of exposure to kryptonite, partly thanks to Luthor.

While his body suffers, his mind is visited by a telepathic alien (who’s also a historian) — its been locked inside the chunk of kryptonite that is killing Superman. After some shenanigans, Superman comes to and the chamber with the kryptonite is closed off. Superman then puts on some lead-lined Sun Armor and takes the sealed chamber with the spirit of the telepathic alien into space so he can throw it into the Sun, per the alien’s request.

13. RETURN OF SUPERMAN COSTUME

superman #81

Following Superman’s death at the hands of Doomsday, four beings showed up stating they were the “real” Superman. There was a Cyborg version of Superman, a Kryptonian weapon posing as Superman, a young clone, and an engineer. To the surprise of few, none of them were actually the real Superman.

Yet the Kryptonian copy of Superman, the Eradicator, had actually taken Superman’s body and used special Kryptonian machinery to revive Superman in a special healing chamber.

After, Superman was put in a healing suit so the rejuvenation process would keep restoring him. The result was a snazzy silver and black outfit. From there, Superman got together with his friends and stopped Cyborg Superman from causing untold destruction. Later on, an alien friend of Superman used her telekinetic powers to transform the black costume into his traditional-looking garbs.

12. NEW 52 ARMOR

DC Comics New 52 Superman

DC’s the New 52 introduced a lot of changes to their longtime comic book history. One of the biggest revolved around Superman and his origin. In seeing Clark Kent’s early history as the Man of Tomorrow, he doesn’t have the classic uniform, but it running around in jeans, a T-shirt, and a cape. Only later, through a crazy sequence of events involving attacking the spaceship of The Collector of All Worlds, does he stumble across Kryptonian armor. The armor quickly synced to his DNA and became Superman’s uniform.

The armor shaped around him by assembling outwards from the S-Shield and over his body. Essentially a form of Kryptonian nanotech, Superman later learned to make the armor shift, making it resemble any type of human clothing. While fans had problems with the costume, it did save Superman from ripping open his shirts all the time.

11. ANTI-PARASITE ARMOR

The villain known as the Parasite is one of Superman’s deadliest enemies. Known for his ability to drain his victims of their life force and even their powers through either touch or proximity, getting in close and personal with the Parasite is typically a no-win situation. In the comic Superman Earth One: Volume Two, Superman is still young and relatively inexperienced, so when the Parasite shows up for the first time, Superman loses their first encounter, nearly killed in the process.

Desperate to find a way to beat the energy-absorbing baddie, Superman retreats to the Fortress of Solitude where he’s outfitted with anti-Parasite armor.

Yet it comes with a few weaknesses, including preventing Superman from absorbing sunlight or letting him unleash his heat vision. Still, Superman makes do. At the last instant, right as his armor shatters, Superman lands a powerful punch, defeating Parasite.

10. METAL MEN ARMOR

In the 12-issue series Justice, Lex Luthor and a cabal of villains have seen a prophecy stating the world will end on account of the superheroes failing to prevent a nuclear Armageddon. Though the dream was actually fabricated by Luthor, Gorilla Grodd, and Brainiac so in order to create a Legion of Doom and destroy the Justice League, the other villains aren’t aware of their plot and sign up.

Able to infect anyone with little mechanical worms, Brainiac kidnaps the heroes’ sidekicks and puts them under his thrall. Before the final battle, the Justice League realizes they need protection; else they will be taken over too. And so, the heroes known as the Metal Men wrap themselves around Superman, Batman, etc. offering them shielding from Brainiac’s technology.

9. KRYPTONITE PROTECTION SUIT

One of Superman’s few weaknesses is kryptonite, the radioactive rock from his homeworld. It’s brought Superman to his knees on more than one occasion. But what if there was no kryptonite on Earth for Superman to worry about? His foes are constantly getting a hold of the stuff and using it to nefarious ends, so why not just get rid of it all? In Superman/Batman #44-49, Superman believes he’ll be more effective at fighting crime if there’s no kryptonite left to threaten him.

He and Batman round up all the kryptonite they can find and lock it away and during it all, Superman wore a protective lead-lined titanium kryptonite Suit.

It was a total body suit with a face-covering helmet that had a retractable one-way visor so he could use his heat vision. It also had a life-support system built in and could self-repair.

8. POWER ARMOR

When Mxyzptlk’s temporarily turned Superman human, because that’s the sort of tomfoolery Superman has to deal with from imps that come from the 5th dimension, he still wanted to protect Metropolis. His friend Professor Emil Hamilton created the Power Armor, letting Superman continue to fight crime. Superman first used the suit to stop the villain Killgrave from escaping Stryker’s Island Prison. There was a bit of a learning curve, as Superman was unfamiliar with the armor, so fails at keeping Killgrave from escaping.

The Power Armor gave Superman super-strength and served as considerable protection. It could punch through brick and concrete walls, withstand small-arms fire, and was dropped several stories, falling through two floors of a prison building. The suit also had several sensors built in, but Superman found the sensors a poor substitute for his super senses.

7. THE MASTER RACE ARMOR

The final installment to Mark Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns trilogy, Dark Knight III: The Master Race, featured a group of Kandorians trying to take over the Earth. Batman goes about recruiting everyone he can to stop the threat. Unfortunately, the Kryptonians, though still in the relative infancy of their power, are more than a match for the planet’s heroes. With no choice left, Batman enters Superman’s Fortress of Solitude and literally digs him out of a self-imposed exile.

The two heroes unite, but realize they need something to even the odds against the hundreds, if not thousands of crazed Kryptonians.

Having seeded the clouds with synthetic kryptonite, Batman and the Flash manipulate the weather patterns and make it rain down liquid poison on the Kryptonians. Not one to stay on the sidelines, Superman dons specialized hulking lead armor to protect him against the kryptonite while he fights.

6. SUPERBOY-PRIME ARMOR

superboy-prime

Superboy-Prime is one of the strongest non-magic based mortals in the entire DC Universe. There are few in the Multiverse that boast his level of power. Even though he’s just a teenager, Superboy-Prime is leagues above most heroes or villains. Originally a good guy during Crisis On Infinite Earths, he went insane in Infinite Crisis. During the event, Superboy-Prime, obsessed with ridding the universe of its “imperfect” heroes, goes on a rampage. Tearing through the Teen Titans, all the Flashes come together and throw Superboy-Prime into the Speed Force.

While this would be an inescapable prison for some, it’s merely a bump in the road for Superboy-Prime. He reappears in relatively short order, but wearing a power suit modeled after the Anti-Monitor armor. This extra layer of protection constantly supplies him yellow solar energy, boosting his already insane levels of power.

5. KRYPTONIAN WARSUIT

Long ago, the Kryptonian Warsuit was developed as an instrument of war. When it wasn’t being used to raze enemies’ planets to ash, it was applied for surviving harsh radioactive wastelands. Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, since it’s made of Kryptonian technology, created a Warsuit for him.

Superman didn’t use the Warsuit much, but it did appear in the Adventures of Superman comics, and more notable when he fights Lobo for the first time.

Throughout the fight, Lobo nearly kills Superman and the hero has to retreat to the Warsuit to even the odds a bit. Later, after being killed by Doomsday, Superman used a Kryptonian Warsuit to facilitate his slow recovery process. It was forgotten for a time until Lex Luthor discovered it. Lex reprogrammed it and course tried to kill Superman with it in the “Fall of Metropolis” storyline.

4. ELECTRIC BLUE

Superman Red Superman Blue

Amidst DC’s The Final Night, the Sun went out and Hal Jordan had to sacrifice himself to re-ignite it. With the Sun, the source of Superman’s power, going out, the Man of Steel lost his powers. When the sun later returned, so did Superman’s powers, except now they were wonky and didn’t work properly. Because the solar energy was metabolizing in a different ways inside his body, Superman was turned into a being of energy.

He no longer had his typical powers, but now possessed insanely powerful energy powers. These new abilities were so intense that he needed a containment suit. This led to the infamous “Blue Superman” era. If that wasn’t enough, a later attack by Cyborg Superman spit electric Superman into two versions: an electric red Superman and an electric blue Superman. Don’t worry, it didn’t last forever.

3. HUNTER/PREY OUTFIT

In the 3-part Superman/Doomsday: Hunter Prey, Doomsday reveals he’s alive and well. After breaking free from his restraints on an asteroid, he heads to Darkseid’s home world Apokolips and starts killing everyone and everything in sight. Meanwhile, Superman senses Doomsday and decides to hunt down the monster. Superman gets outfitting with a Mother Box and goes to Apokolips. When he gets there, Doomsday eludes him and Superman battles Cyborg Superman.

Afterwards, Superman teams up with Waverider but before they go and fight Doomsday, Mother Box outfits Superman with a new suit, providing him with a whole array of weapons, including sonic weapons and plasma swords.

Combined with his Kryptonian abilities, the suit’s power would mean destruction for anyone… anyone who isn’t Doomsday that is. Still outmatched, Superman risks everyone is one last gamble and sends Doomsday to the end of time with the help of Mother Box.

2. SUPERMAN UNCHAINED ARMOR

In the mini-series Superman Unchained, Superman discovers that a powerful alien named Wraith fell to Earth decades earlier and the U.S. government kept it under wraps, housed it, and made it a fighting force for the country. When General Lane learns that Superman knows of Wraith’s existence, he decides to kill the Man of Steel. Superman fights back, practically destroying all of Lane’s forces, but Wraith intervenes and punches Superman to Colorado.

At one point, Superman comes into possession of something called the Earthstone, takes it to his Fortress of Solitude, and General Lane arrives at his doorstep armed for war with weapons specifically made to kill Kryptonians. The Fortress then builds Superman a war suit to fight with. Extremely durable, more so that Superman himself, it also came with an extendable energy hammer and an energy shield.

1. COSMIC ARMOR

In response to the evil Monitor Mandrakk escaping imprisonment, his wife, Zillo Valla, enlists Superman’s aid. Clark however, is at the hospital bedside of his wife Lois, since she’s in a coma, but Zelo says the Monitors have a cure they will give her if Superman helps her. He agrees. With a bunch of Supermen pulled in from across the Multiverse, Captain Allen Adam, or Captain Atom, fuses Superman and Ultraman together, creating Cosmic Armor Superman.

Powered by the two Kryptonians, Cosmic Armor Superman is fueled by memories, duality, symmetry, and all possibilities and probability.

With Multiversal power at his beck and call, supplying him with every super power, this new Superman and his battle chassis battle Mandrakk, a being more powerful than anyone or anything within the Multiverse, and wins. Though technically more an individual than a garb, with “armor” in the title, Cosmic Armor makes the list!

DC Reveals If Superman Believes in God or Not

In Superman #41, in stores last week, the Man of Steel discussed his belief in God — and just like every other time that has happened, it has become news inside and outside of genre circles, so let’s take a little peek at what is driving the discussion.

Writer James Robinson, filling in for regular Super-scribes Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, brought Superman and his son Jon to witness the end of a dying world, experiencing something not entirely unlike what happened to Superman’s birth world of Krypton.

(Ironically, Superman witnessed the destruction of Krypton firsthand in an unrelated Action Comics story this week.)

Along the way, Jon asked his father whether or not he believed in God.

“Honestly, Jon,” Superman says in the issue, “I’ve seen too much not to believe in ‘something.’ But this is the important part…’something’ isn’t everything.”

The implication, of course, is that it is not belief but behavior that truly matters.

“Let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth,” says 1 John 3:18, in a Bible passage that would back up such an interpretation.

Superman, of course, is friendly with The Spectre, created by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel with artist Bernard Baily. The Spectre, it is generally accepted, is the vengeful hand of God…which of course implies that God is a thing that exists.

At the same time, there are pantheons of gods both old (just ask Wonder Woman, whose dad is Zeus) and New (see Mister Miracle about that) wandering through the DC Universe.

As suggested above, this is hardly the first time the question of Superman’s spirituality has been addressed. Superman, who was raised on a farm in Kansas, was likely brought up in an environment where God’s existence is a matter-of-fact thing. The Kents have been shown as regular churchgoers in several of their iterations over the years.

In Action Comics #850, this was made explicit, in a story that discussed Clark’s family history fairly openly. He was raised Methodist, according to that story, and he and Martha both attended church fairly regularly. Jonathan Kent was not a regular churchgoer, but did not appear to have any reservations about God or his son’s church attendance.

0comments

In John Byrne’s The Man of Steel, Jonathan told Clark that he had prayed for him during then-recent struggles.

In his adult life, Clark Kent no longer regularly attends church (although he and Lois were married in one) and does not seem to identify specifically as Methodist, adopting a more broad-spectrum approach to spirituality as seen with the “something isn’t everything” observation.

‘Action Comics’ Finally Reveals Whether Mr. Oz is Really Jor-El

In today’s Action Comics #998, Superman finally does what he set out to do at the start of the “Booster Shot” storyline: he witnesses Krypton’s final moments, from the relative safety of Booster Gold’s Time Sphere, and sees his birth mother wiped from the planet’s surface by a raging explosion.

He also sees, to his horror, that his father, Jor-El, was whisked away from the planet at the last possible moment by a flash of blue energy.

That moment — when his father vanished while his mother was swallowed by eternity — is what Superman had gone back in time to “look for,” but hoped fervently he would not find.

It seemingly confirms the story of Mr. Oz, a character who has been lurking around the fringes of Superman’s world since 2014.

Jor-El first appeared as Mr. Oz in an issue of Superman during Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr.’s run. He presented himself as someone who had been watching Superman’s story from the beginning, and who had “taught” Superman at some point. The Man of Steel himself had encountered Mr. Oz a couple of times before the big reveal came, though, and did not seem to recognize him.

In Action Comics #984, Superman’s son Jonathan helped his father battle supervillains by jumping into a Kryptonian warsuit (a giant purple humanoid robot) and tearing after the Superman Revenge Squad. He was assisted by a mysterious voice — apparently Mr. Oz’s — who knew the details of the suit intimately, seemingly implying that he was Kryptonian or had spent a lot of time around Kryptonian technology.

The theory that Jor-El could be Mr. Oz gained traction shortly before the big revelation came, when a solicited lenticular cover to Action Comics #988 appeared to depict Jor-El disappearing in a flash of blue light during Krypton’s explosion.

That blue light, long associated with the teleportation powers of Watchmen‘s Doctor Manhattan, has been appearing at or near the site of various mysteries since Rebirth began. That would line up with Mr. Oz’s claims that he was taken against his will and whisked around to various places, including an interdimensional prison, with no (or at least very limited) control of where he went and when.

That said, Superman’s biological father is no downy innocent; throughout “The Oz Effect,” he manipulated people and events in order to persuade Superman that mankind is unworthy of his protection, declaring that he had sent baby Kal-El to the wrong world, and that humanity would “prove” to him that it does not deserve Superman or his son.

1comments

And now, with a little help from Booster Gold, it appears as though Superman has confirmed that villain was indeed his biological father.

Action Comics #998 is on sale in comic shops and digitally now.

Please Stop Adapting the Death of Superman

Superman died once, did you know that? You probably did; considering the eruption the story caused in American pop culture in the early ‘90s, it would be hard to not know the Man of Steel once died. This was back when consumers were still just gullible enough to believe Superman would actually be dead forever, and before publishers realized the death and resurrection trope was a goldmine they could exploit into oblivion. It is without a doubt one of the most iconic Superman stories ever told, but it’s also one we really don’t need to see adapted aver again.

However, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are well on their way to releasing a new adaptation of The Death of Superman through the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line. The story will be split into two films, The Death of Superman in late 2018, and Reign of the Supermen in early 2019. It’s clear that Warner Bros. sees this story as Superman’s response to Batman’s The Dark Knight Returns films from a few years back. However, what does it say about the character that his most iconic story, which apparently needs multiple adaptations in quick succession, is about him dying?

The Many Deaths of Superman

To understand the infatuation with the Death of Superman, you have to look beyond the initial story. It wasn’t exactly an original idea to kill the Man of Steel in 1992; the publisher had been doing it for decades, only those stories didn’t count. Much like Marvel’s What If? stories, DC told Imaginary Stories (basically non-continuity), which is how we got the first “The Death of Superman.”

RELATED: No, Really – What’s Going on With the DCEU?

In 1961, Superman creator Jerry Siegel returned to the character for Superman #149. By this point, the Silver Age of comics had transformed the character into an embodiment of pure fantasy. Each issue became an exercise in the suspension of disbelief, as Superman gained new extraordinary powers and was shown to be capable of doing just about anything. At this time, Superman comics were more a laundry list of amazing feats than actual storytelling endeavors.

By the time the original “The Death of Superman” story debuted, it made sense to explore what it would be like if the hero didn’t always win, and if the superhero was actually capable of dying. In Superman #149, Lex Luthor finally manages to kill the Man of Steel, and it was permanent — even if it didn’t really count.

Inevitably, in-continuity stories were told about Superman dying, if only for a short amount of time. In 1966 Otto Binder and Curt Swan created “The School For Superman Assassins” in Superman #188. An assassin actually managed to kill Superman in this story, but the hero was brought back to life. In 1977, Steve Englehart and Dick Dillon told the story “The Carnival of Souls” in Justice League of America #145, where Superman is killed by magic and the League must save his soul.

This practice of bringing the most powerful man in the world to his knees continued on over the years. In Alan Moore and Curt Swan’s seminal Superman story “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow,” DC said goodbye to the Silver Age version of the character in the wake of Crisis on Infinite Earths. The 1986 tale deals with the disappearance of Superman, and though it is revealed that the man never actually died, the superhero did. It’s a story that deals with the mortality and lasting legacy of the greatest superhero that ever existed.

Even after DC finally decided to kill Superman “for real,” the idea has been revisited many times over, though usually lacking the nuance of the original. By 1999, DC upped the ante to comically horrendous and brutal extremes with the continuous murder of Superman through time travel in The Kingdom and the brutal death of the original Golden Age Superman in Infinite Crisis. “The Final Days of Superman,” which saw the end of the New 52 era Superman eventually looked back to the past with a title borrowed from “The Last Days of Superman” in Superman #156. The mortality of a seemingly invincible man has always been, and will always be, a central part of Superman as a character.

‘Death Of Superman’ Animated Movie First Look Released

The special features of upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay offers a first look at Death of Superman, the newest animated adaptation of the famous 1992 DC Comics storyline that saw the Man of Steel fall in battle against the creature known as Doomsday.

The first half of the two-part movie will release later this year, followed by Reign of the Supermen in 2019.

Warner Bros. Animation first tried their hand at adapting the story in 2007’s direct-to-DVD Superman: Doomsday, the inaugural DC Universe Animated Original Movie, under the guiding hands of co-director and producer Bruce Timm.

The latest adaptation will be “more faithful to the source material” and will be “much less condensed” than Doomsday, according to DC Comics, who write Death of Superman will “include many of the fan-favorite moments from the story that were left out of Doomsday.”

That film, loosely inspired by Timm’s DC Animated Universe, greatly condensed the Death and Return of Superman storyline that ran between December 1992 and October 1993 in DC Comics, throughout titles like Superman, Adventures of Superman, Justice League America and Action Comics.

The second part of the two-part adaptation, Reign of the Supermen, is likely to see Superman’s resurrection after his absence gives rise to Superboy, Steel, the Last Son of Krypton and the villainous Cyborg Superman.

Warner Bros. Animation has yet to announce a voice cast or release date for Death of Superman, but the animated original will premiere on Digital HD, Ultra HD 4K and Blu-ray later this year.

When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever.

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, starring Tara Strong as Harley Quinn and Christian Slater as Deadshot, is available to own on digital platforms March 27, and hits 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD April 10.

DC Reveals Covers for Bendis’ First Six Man of Steel Stories – CBR

DC Comics has provided a first look at all six issues of Brian Michael Bendis’ Man of Steel miniseries.

The six colored covers by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado depict memorable moments from Superman’s history to create one long image. There’s Superman joining the Justice League, followed by a young Clark Kent discovering his spaceship and baby Kal-El leaving Krypton. Then, Clark and Lois falling in love, the death of Superman and modern day Superman and Supergirl fighting a villain.

The color version of the third cover from the left shows off Bendis’ new villain that will have ties to Krypton. His appearance seems to have changed significantly from the pencilled version previously revealed a few weeks back. The villain’s teeth, nose and jawline seem to be drastically altered.

Bendis’ run on Superman will begin with April’s historic Action Comics #1000 before he takes over Superman with a new issue one and then continues with Action Comics #1001.

RELATED: Superman’s Red Trunks’ Return Will Be explained In-Story

Why Superman Legend Dan Jurgens Put Lois Lane Front and Center on his ‘Action Comics’ #1000 Cover

Dan Jurgens, the writer/artist who was responsible for restoring Superman’s marriage after it had been removed from continuity, will prominently feature Lois Lane on his variant cover for Action Comics #1000, which comes out in April.

After receiving some thanks from fans of Lois on Twitter, he explained why he chose to put her front and center on the cover.

“I love that Dan Jurgens Action Comics #1000 variant put Lois Lane on the cover,” tweeted superfan, comics writer, and YouTube personality Jason Inman. “Action Comics #1 was her debut too, and she’s just as important as Superman.”

Responded Jurgens, “That’s exactly why I did so.”

Jurgens, the current writer on Action Comics, began drawing Superman comics in 1987 and has been a writer, artist, or both on the character on and off ever since. Jurgens was part of the creative team that oversaw the Lois/Clark engagement and he drew the wedding itself when the time came.

0comments

Jurgens was one of the primary creative forces behind the Man of Steel in the ’90s, with a lengthy run on Superman that ended in 1999. He was a monthly contributor — as writer, artist, or both — from 1989 until he left.

In addition to a story by Brian Michael Bendis, tales from Jurgens and current Superman scribe Peter J. Tomasi, the return of Superman’s red trunks, and lots more, Action Comics #1000 will feature a story by DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns and Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner.
