Wonder Woman

The retro super-heroines of Stephen Langmead ooze pinup girl sex appeal all while wearing the original debut costumes for their characters.

The original 1941 Wonder Woman costume (above) looses the lasso which didn’t appear as a WW accessory until several years later.

The Wasp

The Wasp’s 1963 fashion statement includes a pushup bustier that not only matches the shape of her wings but goes with her other cylindrical accoutrements.

Scarlett Witch

Scarlet Witch’s 1964 debut has her the most covered up– very odd for a decade that was famous for letting it all hang out.

Sue Storm/Invisible Girl

The original 1961 Sue Storm Storm is drawn like Marilyn Monroe, making her sexual appeal a hidden super power that would later attract Tony Stark and Namor as well as Reed Richards. (Coincidentally, both MM and SS have genius IQs.)

Crystal

The 1965 ski lodge jumpsuit is a winning look for Crystal.

Bat Woman

The original 1956 Bat Woman steals everything from the Jane Russell/Jayne Mansield look book.

Miss Fury

The 1946 Miss Fury was many a purr-fect inspiration for a few leather fetishes.
