Marvel's Best Dressed: Halloween 2018

Marvel.com's fashion columnist highlights the best costumes from today's new comics!

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.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Tell me, who does this fun holiday better than your favorite characters in the Marvel Universe? No one; they're nearly ALWAYS in costume! This week’s Marvel’s #BestDressed are treating us with sp0o0o0o0oky, silly looks.

Emma Frost - X-MEN: BLACK - EMMA FROST #1

X-MEN: BLACK - EMMA FROST #1

Emma is dressed up all the time. While this isn’t quite a Halloween look, she’s still serves fun, gothy elements with her boots, belt, and bracelet. Can she do us wrong? Never. (Kinda.)

X-MEN: BLACK - EMMA FROST #1 interiors by Chris Bachalo with Faucher, Vey, Livesay, Townsend, Mendoza and Bacho on inks, and Fabela, Brown, Lopez, and Bachalo on colors

Punisher of the Opera - AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1

AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1

A real embodiment of Halloween here. Mixing old timey historical elements with the classic Punisher skull is really a Halloween win for me.

Spider-Horse - VAULT OF SPIDERS #1

VAULT OF SPIDERS #1

Simple...but recognizable. Isn’t that what a good costume is all about? Can't a horse be his favorite Web-Slinger for Halloween, too? A+

VAULT OF SPIDERS #1 “The Web-Slinger” interiors by Javier Pulido with Munsta Vicente colors

Tony Stark - TONY STARK: IRON MAN #5

TONY STARK: IRON MAN #5

If you’re not into dressing up, simple black is always a great Halloween costume alternative. Tony Stark proves it here, in a three-piece black suit complete with black shirt & tie. Spooky!
