What’s your favorite? Share in our brand new message boards!



I really liked Cyclops’ look from Marvel Now! The red and black is a little meaner and shows that he’s not just the wussy boy scout anymore.

-Dave R.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman’s New 52 update was subtle, but I liked the dark blue and silver changes on the suit. Made it feel more modern while keeping the classic look.

-Ellen P.

Lady Thor

Lady Thor

Lady Thor! It has the distinct colors and features of Thor while also being totally her own hero.

-Paul E.



Olivier Coipel’s redesign of Thor brought him into the modern age. The mail armor and yellow lightning bolt-looking details are a nice touch.

-Steven S.



Annihilation took Drax the Destroyer from goofy looking 70s cosmic character into an awesome edgy look. Plus Dave Bautista totally ruled in Guardians of the Galaxy.

-Alex K.

Bucky Captain America

Bucky Captain America

One of my favorite parts of Ed Brubaker’s classic Captain America run was Bucky taking up the shield. It combined a distinctly “Captain America” look, but the black part incorporated his spy/black ops history into the design.

-Patrick K.



Hawkguy! Simple, yet effective.

-Sarah N.
