Trending this week: Super Hero looks that are fabulously functional. Check out these four kick-butt Marvel women do their thing while looking ridiculously stylish.

Rogue - MR. & MRS. X #4

MR. & MRS. X #4 cover by Terry Dodson

I love Rogue in almost anything she is in. This look is featured today for how theatrical it is. The high collar, low neckline combo along with the dress’s high-slits gives me life.

Mystique - X-MEN: BLACK - MYSTIQUE #1

 

X-MEN: BLACK - MYSTIQUE #1 cover by J. Scott Campbell with colors by Sabine Rich

On the other end of the spectrum is how simple and sleek Mystique’s costume is here. What it lacks in ornamental detail, it makes up for with how she rocks it. It is so right.

Weapon Hex - INFINITY WARPS: WEAPON HEX #1

INFINITY WARPS: WEAPON HEX #1 variant cover by Humberto Ramos

Let me preface this by noting that this is the Infinity Warps mash-up character I am MOST amped for. Scarlet Witch and X-23??? C’mon. This costume has a black magic factor that drew me to itdeep reds with latex thigh-highsbut is also stylishly functional enough to kick butt in.
