After looking at the ten best and ten worst superhero costumes, we recently did a run down of the ten worst supervillain costumes to have plagued comic book movies. Once again, you were all very vocal about our choices, and we now present to you the ten best supervillain costumes.
Do you agree or disagree with these latest selections? Like the heroes they battle, many bad guys have undergone fairly drastic changes in their transition from the page to screen, and that includes what they wear. So, as per usual, we’d love to hear from you, so sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below.
10. Mandarin (Iron Man 3)
Ok, so enough time has passed for us to be able to talk about the big twist in Iron Man 3, right? In a genius move, Marvel Studios managed to trick fans into thinking they were getting The Mandarin, only to reveal that…well, he was an over-the-top actor called Trevor! Needless to say, this did NOT sit well with a lot of comic book readers who were hoping to see the classic villain and his alien powered magic rings, but it was still an undeniably clever and bold creative decision.
As this version of The Mandarin is used by the true “Marndarin” as a political tool, it’s fitting that his costume is influenced by several different cultures, many of which are associated with terrorism. A nice touch was including a version of Captain America’s shield in the form of a tattoo on the back of his neck, only for the star to be replaced with the symbol for Anarchists!
