3. Titans (Dick Grayson and Jason Todd suits)

Worn by: Brenton Thwaites and Curran Walters

DC's Titans was very much an ensemble show but it was also about Dick Grayson's journey to letting go of Robin and becoming Nightwing. Furthermore, it was also about the journey of the Robin mantle, for throughout the show's four short seasons, there were three Robins. The first two of those - Dick and Jason Todd - wore the same suit and it was widely considered an incredible design.

The best thing about the Titans Robin suit is how it's an authentic modernization of the character's traditional look. Yes, it's more inspired by recent comics than the classics, but the influence of the Golden Age is still there. All of the Boy Wonder's signature colors are there, but with a modern twist. The suit employs a more combat-ready approach, which honestly makes sense considering how talented he is on any battlefield. It's tactical and armored to protect him from too much battle damage (his arms aren't on show), but it avoids being too bulky, which allows him to do all of the crazy roundhouse kicks and spins he is renowned for.

Its greatest feature is the armored red chest and torso-piece, which is designed to match the Robin suit in the comics. It's a duller red (so that it doesn't look too bright for Titans' moody tone) but it still pops nicely, highlighting the gold accents and the sharper, cooler R emblem.

While some felt that the suit could have been a shade brighter and that there could have been more character in the dull green pants, Titans' initial Robin suits hold up well. Both actors Brenton Thwaites and Curran Walters wore it very well, but it suited the latter a bit better, and that was simply down to the fact that it was a much neater fit (the bigger suit that Thwaites wore occasionally looked a bit baggy in the sleeves). It also happened to feature an incredible variation of the domino mask that looked like it had been ripped straight from the comics.
