Thanks to COVID-19, cosplayers have been left unable to show off their amazing costumes at events like the San Diego Comic-Con and Wizard World, but social media somewhat makes up for that!

While the superhero (and supervillain) suits we see on the big screen these days have definitely improved, there are some which aren't necessarily faithful to the comic books, and others which just aren't good enough for some fans. The amazing people highlighted in this feature, however, have managed to dream up costumes even better than those on the big - and small - screen. 

We brought you some amazing cosplayers earlier this year, but there's another batch here which we're confident will blow your minds! Among the characters highlighted are Nightwing, Black Cat, Elektra, and The Juggernaut, and if Marvel and DC can replicate costumes like these, it would be epic.

To take a look through the gallery, all you guys need to do is click on the "Next" button down below!

10. Catwoman - @m_mellu

We've seen a few different iterations of Catwoman on screen up until this point, but none of them have been entirely comic accurate. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that will change in The Batman.

It would be amazing seeing something like this, though, because this take on Selina Kyle is absolutely perfect. There's no reason this wouldn't work on screen, so who knows why it's yet to happen. 

9. Shadowcat - @hendoart

The X-Men are on their way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we can only hope that they finally don some comic accurate costumes. For Kitty (Kate) Pryde, what about this classic number? 

This looks absolutely phenomenal here, and it's not remotely difficult to picture an actress decked out in this alongside a CGI Lockheed. Shadowcat needs to return to the big screen ASAP, regardless.

8. Nightwing - @dynamitewebber

Nightwing's costume in Titans...is fine. However, it also looks like it was created on a TV budget, and there are arguably better ways this fan-favourite former Robin could be portrayed in live-action. 

There's something special about this effort, and we'd strongly recommend checking out @dynamitewebber's Instagram page for more eye-catching takes on Batman's many sidekicks.

7. X-23 - @vamp

It goes without saying that we obviously didn't expect young Dafne Keene to wear a costume like this in Logan, but for an older version of Laura, this is a pitch perfect take on Wolverine's clone. 

While X-23 has donned her own version of Wolvie's costume in recent years, but this is how the hero looked when she was first introduced, and bringing that to the big screen would be no bad thing.

6. Elektra - @elizabethrage

Elektra has made four live-action appearances (in Daredevil, Elektra, and the Daredevil and Defenders TV show), and while her costumes have never been awful, there's definite room for improvement.

We understand not wanting to objectify an actress by putting her in a skimpy effort like this, but part of the reason Elektra doesn't need an armoured costume is because she's such a formidable warrior.

5. The Juggernaut - @bdcharacterlab

This literally looks like an action figure come to life, and we love it! While some changes would have to be made for something like this to work on screen, it's still better than what Vinnie Jones wore.

2018's Deadpool 2 brought back The Juggernaut, but made him more of a mindless goon than anything else. In the MCU, we'd like to see his past and powers explored in a far more in-depth manner. 

4. Black Cat - @rolyatistaylor

This is a fairly simple take on Black Cat, and in all honestly, it doesn't take a lot to beat Felicia Hardy's street clothes in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, while it may not be fancy, we love this version.

It's definitely comic accurate, and that's a big win when it comes to a character like Black Cat. It's difficult to imagine ever seeing this classic costume in live-action, so this cosplay will have to do.

3. Invisible Woman - @inir_k

During Disney's recent Investor Day, it was confirmed that a new Fantastic Four movie is coming from director Jon Watts. We don't know when it's coming, but we want costumes as cool as this one!

This is pure, classic Fantastic Four, and the model here looks awesome as Sue Storm, the Invisible Women. When it comes to Marvel's First Family, if it ain't broke, Marvel Studios shouldn't try to fix it.

2. Mystique - @ashlynnedae


For the most part, fans have grown bored of seeing Mystique in the X-Men movies. It's easy enough to see why, but would you really say "no" to a comic accurate version like this jaw-dropping effort?

This is arguably how Mystique should be portrayed, and we really don't need to head down the "scales" route again. You can check out more, NSFW photos of this impressive cosplay by clicking here.

1. Black Cat - Faerie Blossom

This second Black Cat cosplay is based on the Spider-Man video game rather than the comic books, but if Sony Pictures is looking to head down a more "realistic" route, we'd be on board with this. 

The costume looks absolutely superb in live-action, and if Faerie Blossom has any acting experience, perhaps she could play Felicia Hardy too? Either way, we're 100% impressive by this take on the hero.

Anybody else remember the pornstar list Josh did. Lol, never change Josh. Never change.
marvel72 - 12/24/2020, 8:13 AM
@SnideCut - Yup it was awesome, he should do another with today's pornstars.
JoshWilding - 12/24/2020, 8:15 AM
@SnideCut - 😂😂😂 That's a throwback! Different times back then... 😅
marvel72 - 12/24/2020, 10:21 AM
@JoshWilding - Yeah you can't say or do shit now with triggering instant outrage.
SnideCut - 12/25/2020, 10:10 AM
@JoshWilding - For sure! Man, I feel old. Good Times.
marvel72 - 12/24/2020, 8:12 AM
Best article of the year,actually joint first with the first part of this two parter.

Keep them coming.
Urubrodi - 12/24/2020, 1:49 PM
@marvel72 - I would have removed Nightwing and Juggernaut from it. But apart from that agreed.
bkmeijer2 - 12/24/2020, 8:20 AM
Yeah, yeah we get it. Merry Christmas and keep things steady folks
Manmarvel - 12/24/2020, 8:36 AM
Wait X-23 would have been better off in this comicbook accurate version? 😬
HeavyMetal4Life - 12/24/2020, 8:38 AM
This is what happens when you make a public list out of your private internet browser history.

We get it, you've been looking at these cosplayers lately... for science. Someone is clearly thinking with their head.

Christmas game - take a drink every time Josh uses the phrase ‘jaw-dropping’ when it’s totally inapplicable.

Damn them thighs on Mystique are the truth.

DeadClunge - 12/24/2020, 9:05 AM
But can I take these cosplayers to the bank? I demand to know!!
PicolasCage - 12/24/2020, 9:14 AM
That Elektra one is unbelievably hot, goddamn

Your softcore sensibilities are all well and good, but where's the F4 article from the middle of the night?
Reeds2Much - 12/24/2020, 9:24 AM
My Asuka Langley Soryu cosplay was much better than any of these entries.
Feralwookiee - 12/24/2020, 9:52 AM
I enjoy porn too, but let's keep our personal fetishes personal, ok?
marvel72 - 12/24/2020, 10:27 AM
@Feralwookiee - Come on man we all like comic books and comic book movies, every single one of us must have had sexual cosplay thoughts.

Don't be afraid to embrace your feelings.
dragon316 - 12/24/2020, 9:53 AM
If Elektra and mystique look like that in movies parents be saying they have on skimpy costumes look like strippers some of boob is popping out people and FANS need realize not all comic Accurate costumes look well In movies if female wore there comic accurate costumes depending who it is people saying she looks like stripper little kids go see these movies and sell Halloween costumes would you let your 10 daughter wear corset and one piece bathing suit to dress like comic accurate scarlet witch that is something think about when crying about comic accuracy costumes in dam movies people!!!

And catwoman she don’t dress like no more in comics that catwoman costume was two years ago

Is Josh a differently abled person? Real question.
Feralwookiee - 12/24/2020, 10:14 AM
@LoganMjolnir - I think the term they use nowadays is "Special-American".
LoganMjolnir - 12/24/2020, 10:36 AM
-Two times Black Cat on the list, even though we haven't had that character on screen. Did i forgot to say he posted her two times?
-Juggernaut, who was as comic accurate as possible in Deadpool 2, but with a convict suit.
-X-23, who's only version we've had is a kid on a western without almost any comicbook element great movie.

Seriously, and we are the angry dudebros? This guy has zero criterion.
Tonic24k - 12/24/2020, 10:51 AM
@JoshWilding - Dude...not that these aren't good but to say they're "better" than what we've seen in the movies is LAZY writing. Bondage-Elektra is better than what we've seen in movies? An action figure of Juggernaut is better than what we've seen in movies? And some of these cosplays look pretty good but are clearly very low budget. The better way of writing this headline is "10 cosplayer costumes that stick closer to the comic books than the movies".

Most of these would look silly in movies. Not all...but yes, not all comic-identical costumes are going to translate to film very well. You've really got to do better dude. But hey, thank you for finally putting a spoiler tag in the Mandalorian headlines. At least you didn't ruin


Luke showing up the same way you did Boba Fett for me...

Better than in the movies? Even porn parodies have better costumes that these "cosplayers". These suck balls.
AnthonyVonGeek - 12/24/2020, 4:58 PM
Top notch journalism 😜
now if you’ll excuse me.....

SummersEssex - 12/24/2020, 7:54 PM
Female costumes can be comic book accurate AND tasteful without objectifying women. I love what the comics did with Captain Marvel’s costume, made the transition to screen so simple.

Also, Juggernaut mostly is a mindless thug, so Deadpool 2 got that right. We don’t need to waste time on the big screen exploring his back-story. He was abused, bullied his stepbrother and found the gem of cyttorak. Backstory complete. Or just make him a mutant. Let’s move on.
aievilgenius - 12/25/2020, 10:30 AM
Cool, but nobody touching Enjinight’s black cat. She fire.
Battabing - 12/25/2020, 5:44 PM
I think cosplay is kinda creepy.
