Top 10 Sexiest Superhero Costumes

These are the outfits that capture just about everyone's attention. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 10 Sexiest Superhero Costumes.

For this list, we'll be ranking the superhero comic costumes that possess the most sex appeal. Although there are some anti-heroes and semi super-villains on this list, we’re mostly focusing on female characters who, at one point or another, have fought for a noble cause. We’ll save our look at full-time baddies for another list.

#10: Zatanna

The DC superhero known as Zatanna Zatara manages to make magic supremely sexy with her outfit, which is an adjusted throwback to the days of old school illusionists and magicians. Zatanna keeps the vintage top hat and tails look intact, but adds to it sleek leather boots and mesh tights that leave little of her legs to the imagination. Unlike many other superheroes, Zatanna opts not to emphasize her cleavage, but somehow the combination of the demure top with the sexy fishnets and boots creates definite heat. Maybe it’s magic- or maybe she just knows what works for her.

#9: Black Widow

Strength, grace and confidence are some seriously attractive qualities. The secret agent known as Black Widow has all of the above...and wraps them all together in one seriously sexy package. Skin tight is the name of the game when it comes to the fashion sense of this globe-trotting character. The Widow usually chooses to mix up form with function, while also showcasing enough of her gorgeous figure to distract even the most focused adversary. It doesn't matter if you're talking about Natasha Romanoff, Yelena Belova or any of the other women to don the mantle of Black Widow : she’s one spy you can’t help but keep your eyes on.

#8: Lady Death

Limiting your combat outfit to a black bikini with leather gloves and boots is a sure-fire way to grab attention, and that seems to be just fine with Lady Death. This Coffin and Chaos comics character from the 1990s may add a cool black cape to her ensemble for dramatic effect, but it probably isn't providing much protection from the elements. Lady Death's captivating look doesn’t depend solely on her clothing (or lack thereof). Her stark white hair and pale skin make the contrast between her natural beauty and eye-catching outfit all the more appealing.

#7: Emma Frost

This Marvel character also known as the White Queen may look ready for bed, but that's just part of her appeal. Emma Frost has never shied away from using her sexuality as one of the weapons in her armory. Just take a look at the revealing costume of her original look, which could also double for lingerie. The flowing white cape looks elegant and majestic, fit for a queen, while the off-the-shoulder corset and all-in-one leggings and boots combo accentuate Frost's abundant charms. Sometimes a hero, occasionally a villain, Emma is never left out on the bench. Similarly, this ensemble demands attention wherever she goes, and it's always successful.

#6: Vampirella

What can we say about the costume worn by the intergalactic blood-sucker known as Vampirella? It's certainly become the stuff of comic book legend, and proves that just a little bit of material can go a long way in defining a character's visual appeal. Vampirella may be many things, but shy certainly isn't one of them, as her red bikini barely covers anything at all, while her black leather boots only add to the character's devilish charms. Going unnoticed by most is the little white collar that tends to get lost beneath her raven black hair – but it’s that kind of attention to detail that shows she cares about her look.

#5: Catwoman

There's just something timeless and classic about skintight leather, and there's arguably no comic book character that has worn this look better than DC’s Catwoman. She's been on both sides of the law over the years, stealing glances and hearts just as often as...well, anything else she wants to steal, really. She's smart, stealthy and incredibly sexy, disarming her opposition with a look that is both captivating and dangerous. Indeed, little is left to the imagination with Selina Kyle's outfit, but don't get too close, lest you suffer the wrath of this cat's claws.

#4: Black Canary

Fishnet stockings catch a helluva lot more than fish – at least when worn by DC’s Black Canary. Zatanna already proved how effective they could be, but the Canary matches them up with a gleaming spandex leotard. The result is devastating. Frankly, if we were a villain, we’d be happy to give ourselves up right away to this tough-as-nails superhero with the incredible figure. Sometimes she adds a cute little jacket to the mix, which she manages to make dangerously alluring. The superhero once known as Dinah Drake may have seen more than her fair share of origin story shifts over the years, but her beauty and brawn remain a timeless combination.

#3: Power Girl

Sure, she’s known for her superhuman abilities, as well as for her constantly changing relation to her cousin Superman. But let’s face it: the thing she’s most famous for is that chest-baring oval that leaves one wondering how she avoids getting pneumonia in the winter. Power Girl's otherwise classic cape-and-spandex combination is perfectly fine, but it’s the cut-out that makes it special. Indeed, so distracting and comically large is the peek-a-boo circle that's it's become sort of a calling card for the character. We're not sure if Kara Zor-L's figure-hugging style of dress was common on Krypton prior to its destruction, but it certainly succeeds in turning heads here on Earth.

#2: Psylocke

Betsy Braddock, a.k.a. Psylocke isn't only a massively powerful telepath, but she's also in peak physical fighting condition, the results of which can clearly be seen in her choice of costumes. Psylocke modifies the typical superhero spandex suit with unique ribbon designs that swirl around her body. The effects of this choice are twofold, as they not only provide an exotic flair to Psylocke's attire, but also showcase her muscular beauty. Indeed, Braddock's physical charms are both desirable and deadly, which came in handy during her tenure as an assassin. Wise opponents realize they can’t be drawn in by her considerable sensual appeal.

Before we name our sexiest superhero costume, here are a few honorable mentions!

Black Cat

Elektra

Supergirl

#1: Wonder Woman

A classic never goes out of style. Case in point: The inspiring strength and timeless beauty of DC's most beloved superhero, Wonder Woman. The character otherwise known as Diana Prince has been portrayed in a number of different media over the years, but the image of Prince's stylized bustier, arm bracelets and star-spangled bottoms remain a classic. The uniform gives Wonder Woman the best balance of power and femininity, whether displayed in print, film or by the iconic Lynda Carter in the ‘70s T.V. series. Diana's costume may grab attention, but it also inspires and empowers, making Wonder Woman one of the comic world's ultimate queens. Long may she reign.
