2. Supergirl (TV series' second suit)

Worn by: Melissa Benoist

For the fifth season of The CW's Supergirl, there were some major modifications made to the Girl of Steel's suit. The original suit was pretty comic-accurate, but the update modernized it a bit more. While the result was great, it didn't quite reach the heights of the original suit.

The biggest change was that the skirt was swapped out for pants; a logical decision considering that Supergirl had cold night shoots in Vancouver when the original suit was designed for sunny Los Angeles. It also looked great, with a pointed gold belt and tall red boots adding some color to the all-blue suit, and it just highlights how the DCEU Supergirl suit could have benefitted from something like this.

Among the other changes that looked great were the cape latches, which borrowed from the Arrowverse's Superman and Batwoman designs, and allowed the cape to slot into them on either side of the House of El symbol. And speaking of the symbol, it too got an update. No longer was it part of the design on the suit itself, but a separate piece fixed to its chest. While the design of it looked great, the gold outline was much darker than its predecessor's yellow outline, making the symbol a lot darker - and harder to see. It could have benefitted from being a bit brighter.

All in all, it was a great suit - and one that made Kara Danvers look every bit as powerful as her comic book counterpart.
