Among some of the most popular comic book and superhero costume ideas are of course X-Men costumes. First created as a comic book series by Marvel Comics, the X-Men have since had several animated TV shows and movies. The X-Men are a team of mutants with unique super powers brought together by Professor Xavier who created a school for mutants.
The original X-men included Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey, but over the years many characters have come and gone. Wolverine is probably the most popular X-Men character. Some other popular characters include Storm, Rogue, Gambit, Nightcrawler, Mystique and Magneto. Among boys, Wolverine costumes are very popular since the character is tough. Mystique costumes have been very popular since the X-Men movie since it’s an extremely sexy costume for women. Another very popular X-Men costume idea for girls is Emma Frost, since her costume is also very sexy.
Over the years many of the characters have gone through interesting costume changes. For instance Wolverine originally had a brown and black costume, then a yellow and blue costume later. In the X-Men movie he wore all black or sometimes casual clothing, although with his claws and unique hairstyle he was still recognizable.
Any group of friends who loves comic books could easily do an X-Men themed group costume. There are so many interesting X-Men heroes and villains as well as love interests and rivalries that make it easy to find a character you relate to. Couples could dress up as Jean Grey and Cyclops or Rogue and Gambit. With so many possibilities, new fans and old fans of the series can find a cool X-Men costume idea that works for them.
