How to Dress Like Super Heroes (or Villains): Marvel Edition! (Photos)

Iron Man 3 comes out on May 3rd, and for some reason, I have had the sudden urge to dress all in red and gold in honor of Tony Stark. It was then I realized something; those Marvel superheroes (and even some of their villains) sure are stylish!

In honor of the upcoming release of the third film in the Iron Man series, we’ve put together various stylish looks that pay tribute to our favorite Marvel characters from Captain America, to Thor, to even Loki! Check out the super hero inspired ensembles here. Which is your favorite?
