Sexy Man of Steel

So let’s start our sexy superhero study with the harder subject:  Superman.

Superman is truly one of the most iconic superheros ever created, so iconic even that he is one of the very few characters who has totally failed to have any significant costume change stick for any prolonged period of time.  Here I present to you Supe’s new sexy duds.  I think he’s looking pretty sharp.  How about you?  Would you endanger yourself to have him “rescue” you?

So why’d I make the changes I made?  Let us investigate.

Starting with our basic superman build, we’re in luck as he’s pretty sexy all by himself.  But he can’t be running around in the buff, so we’re going to attempt to emphasize all the bits that make him a total stud.  The sexiest part of the male figure is the torso and arms.  Ask anyone who’s into guys, they’ll confirm this with rare exception.  Furthermore, it is the trapezoidal shapes that are considered the hottest:  the broad shoulders and wide chest tapering to a narrow waist.  A shape which is also frequently repeated in the face:  cheekbones to chin.

So to emphasize those broad shoulders, we take the Superman S and extend clear to his shoulders.  We use a ribbing texture and a darker blue color on his sides to visually diminish his waist and show off his abdominal core which is a part of the body that is considered sexy in both genders.  The red shorts are too iconic to not keep, but we give them a sexier lower-rise, and mimic the downward angles used in the Superman S.  For visual consistency, we repeat that angle in the tops of his boots.  Nothing’s sexier than looking slightly undressed, so we keep his arms bare, keep his collar low and open at the throat, and we give his boots a little bulk.  Instead of the traditional neck or shoulder cape, we throw it over his shoulders, clasped with a Superman shield emblem to give him the look of a dashing rogue.

And there you have it:  Superman at his sexiest.  An outfit clearly designed for sex appeal, but hardly demeaning to the character.  Up next:  Supergirl.

  1. Hot Damn! He is looking good. Nice work…can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Man, this is great. I think my favorite part is that he would look good with or without the cape, so if this was in the comics, he could throw the cape off all badass-like for the really heavy fighting scenes.

    Awoo! I agree with MediaDuke about the cape, and I definitely like this redesign!! Can’t say I wouldn’t mind getting into trouble if he’s the one that’s gonna get me out of it! Can’t wait to see SG!

    I’d like to see you do Power Girl.
    She’s probably one of the most talked about in this regard.

    I like the outfit, but had two notes.

    1. Everything above the waist makes a giant V pointing to his crotch :D
    2. His stomach muscles look like a giant ribbed phallus pointing down! (worse on the home page where the images is squished some).

    But maybe I only noticed #2 because of #1, and I swear I am a straight guy and don’t have phallus on the brain LOL

  6. I read this site and got so happy that I hurricane punched a cloud!

  7. Okay, so I’m in love. I think he’s beautiful!

    :)
