The 3 Coolest Costumes in This Week's Marvel Comics

Killmonger! Storm! Doctor Strange!

Marvel Comics' own Emily Newcomen is our fashion columnist, an alumna of the Fashion Institute of Technology, and (like her style icon Mary Jane Watson) an extremely natural redhead.

HELLO and welcome to this week’s edition of Marvel’s Best Costumes! I come to you live from a very, very cold New York City, much like MANY of your favorite heroes in the Marvel Universe. This week’s picks focus on how even the most heroic among us choose to face the winter chill…

Killmonger - KILLMONGER #1

Okay so...he’s a villain. BUT, Killmonger is hitting the streets of Harlem ready for whatever cold comes his way. Vest and scarf combo on point.

Stephen Strange - Doctor Strange #9

Even the Sorcerer Supreme loves a good turtle neck (I am not alone!).  He’s even paired it off with a smart jacket, tying this monochromatic look all together. 

Storm - The Merry X-Men Holiday Special #1

Storm has been featured quite a bit in this seriesand for good reason! She steps out in a striking red pea coat in the MERRY X-MEN HOLIDAY SPECIAL. If you could control the weather around your outfits, would you?
