Supergirl vs. Wonder Woman, Black Canary and More: Which Crimefighting Costume Is Most Super?

Supergirl Costume

On Friday afternoon, CBS released the first full-length shot of Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl costume, eliciting a flurry of both approving cheers and judgmental jeers (plus one awesomely ridiculous anecdote from Arrow‘s Stephen Amell).

So in the spirit of reacting to stuff on the Internet, TVLine is inviting you to play a game of Project Runway: Comic Edition, in which we present four of the most recent, buzziest female costume reveals and you chime in with your critiques, both in terms of fashion and function.

Let’s begin with Benoist’s Supergirl ensemble, which costume designer Colleen Atwood describes as both an homage to the past and an embracing of the present day’s more “street-style action hero.” We’ll pit that against Katie Cassidy’s Black Canary outfit from The CW’s Arrow, which temporarily broke the internet — move over, Kim K — when it was revealed in Nov. 2014.

And here’s the second set of entries, both of which are modeled by Friday Night Lights alumna Adrianne Palicki. On the left, you’ll see her as Wonder Woman from NBC’s 2011 David E. Kelley pilot; on the right, as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Mockingbird.
