Summary:
This richly illustrated book explores how radical couture, avant-garde sportswear, and state-of-the-art military garments as seen through the lens of the superhero can be metaphors for sex, power, and politics. Beginning with the origins of the superhero costume, this volume looks at how designers have been influenced by iconographic components such as the cape, mask, boots, and unitard.
