One thing I like about Into the Spider-Verse that really puts it above all the live-action superhero movies is that characters don鈥檛 have 鈥渏ustify鈥 how their costumes look.
What I mean is, ever since superhero movies started becoming a thing, iconic characters have had their outfits re-designed to be more 鈥渞ealistic鈥. Just look at the X-Men and how their transition from comic to cinema took their costumes from 鈥渃olorful and iconic鈥 to 鈥渂lack leatherpalooza鈥. Which I can sort of understand- when watching a live-action film, it鈥檚 harder to suspend your disbelief that an actual human being would willingly dress up in a 鈥渟illy鈥 outfit than if you were watching a cartoon. In fact I鈥檓 pretty sure they make a joke about Wolverine鈥檚 original yellow outfit in one of the X-Men movies.
As time went on and the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanded, they slowly grew more bold about their costumes looked, though personally it always felt like they were 鈥渉olding back鈥 in a way I can鈥檛 adequately describe, like they鈥檙e still afraid that general audiences will dismiss superheroes as being too silly (which frankly feels like it misses half the reason superheroes are fun).
But in Spider-Verse? Everyone鈥檚 costumes look like they came straight out of a comic book, and it鈥檚 all the better for it. Look at the Prowler- a live-action Prowler couldn鈥檛 get away with that high collared cape, glowing boots, or even the vibrant purple color scheme. His outfit would be all stitched kevlar in dark, muted tones like a motorcycle outfit. Nobody made jokes about how he looks, either in the movie or in the media. He鈥檚 allowed to just... be the Prowler.

Let鈥檚 Talk: Female Heroes and their costumes.
After seeing Black Widow this week, something occurred to me as I was leaving the theater and it made me smile. The difference in the costumes for both the DCEU and the MCU now that more women are getting involved.
My first example is from Birds of Prey.
Tumblr media
There is nothing inherently pulling the male gaze with these outfits. One could argue that Dinah鈥檚 is a little, but she is also still wearing her outfit from work, where she works for Roman Sionis, so that would explain the cleavage that she鈥檚 showing. But overall, most of the women in this shot are wearing flat shoes and clothes that they look comfortable in and look like they can actually fight in as well. Of course they make fun of Dinah later on for her choice in pants, but it鈥檚 more of a fun tongue-in-cheek moment more than anything else. But look at Harley鈥檚 outfit, that鈥檚 a fun outfit but there鈥檚 nothing that screams聽鈥淟OOK AT MY BOOBS AND BUTT鈥 like her outfit in Suicide Squad did. Helena is decked out in combat boots and protective vest. And of course, one of the most relatable moments in women鈥檚 comic book history happens during the big brawl:
Tumblr media
You love to see it. From the outfit choices and this scene alone, I would have known that this film was directed by a woman.
Even in Wonder Woman 1984 we saw a difference. Sure, Diana was still running around in her tiny skirt/metal bra combo, but she got the chance to put on the golden armour and while it kinda looked tacky, it was still better than the other suit in terms of getting rid of the male gaze.
Tumblr media
Practical, covering her while still looking nice. There is a slight heel on the boot but nothing too crazy, unlike her other costume. And which movie did she first wear the Iconic Wonder Woman costume? Oh that鈥檚 right, BvS, a movie directed by a man. The difference is easy to spot if you鈥檙e looking. There is nothing wrong with her costume, but you can see the difference from when a man is making the choices versus when a woman is.
Next we hop over to the MCU as we take a look at Carol鈥檚 outfit from Captain Marvel.聽
Tumblr media
Carol鈥檚 suit is very much like Steve鈥檚 suit, in the way that it鈥檚 very military looking. It fits her body, but so does Yon-Rogg鈥檚 and the other members of the Kree. A man did design this costume, but with input from the directors and I believe Larson herself, though I鈥檓 not sure on that. But the whole outfit screams badass practicality. There is no cleavage, no ridiculous heels. You could switch her outfit with Steve鈥檚 and it would basically be the same, and that鈥檚 a good thing.
Next is Elizabeth Olsen鈥檚 Wanda Maximoff.
Tumblr media
She鈥檚 been on record to say how much she disliked the first costume on the left. Olsen said that she didn鈥檛 like how revealing it was, and that it didn鈥檛 really fit her or the character. The middle one wasn鈥檛 a lot better, but at least she wasn鈥檛 showing as much cleavage. But the last costume? Olsen had a say in it and she loves it, and I think it鈥檚 the best one to date. I actually would argue it鈥檚 one of the better costumes in the whole MCU. It looks visually appealing on her and really suits the character as well. And while they鈥檙e not featured, the shoes she鈥檚 wearing are more flat in the bottoms I believe. The last costume is just a sign that if you listen to the person who has to wear it constantly and focus on making it look cool and practical rather than sexy, it ends up being more attractive anyway. I don鈥檛 know a single person who has complaints about it.
Last but certainly not least, Natasha聽鈥淏lack Widow鈥 Romanoff. This is one of her costumes, coming from Age of Ultron:
Tumblr media
Zipper is super low, you can see the size of that heel from her, and it鈥檚 super form fitting. Natasha was sexualized the moment she showed up on screen in Iron Man 2 and they rolled with this look for a very long time. We saw them relaxing it a little in Endgame when she wore the comfy clothes and her socks, but overall she鈥檚 always had this look.聽
Tumblr media
Even here you can see how far dawn that zipper is, and even the vest is nearly wide open. But as you will soon seen, Johansson had enough of that and had a lot of say in Natasha鈥檚 clothing in the Black Widow movie. Natasha for most of that movie is wearing loose clothing or clothes that stay up near her collar bone. Also, throughout the whole movie she and Yelena wear combat boots, never once wearing those heeled shoes that Natasha wore in all the other movies. It鈥檚 a subtle enough change that it鈥檚 not changing the entire look of the character, but enough that it got me thinking聽鈥渁bout fucking time.鈥
Tumblr media
Look at the zipper placement. While it may be a little low here, it鈥檚 not so low that she鈥檚 falling out of her costume. Plus there鈥檚 the added strap that hold the jacket in place. The pants are also a tiny bit looser, and so is the jacket. Just a tiny bit, but you can see the bunching and creasing from the extra fabric. ScarJo said that it was her favourite costume to date and the most comfortable to wear. And just to compare the two Infinity War Era Natasha鈥檚:
Tumblr media
See where the zipper is on the inside jacket? The vest is open but that鈥檚 how Yelena wore it for most of the movie as well. It looks comfy and attractive, but not in the male gaze way.
As you can see from the examples above, the more that the industry is changing due to women getting involved, the more the costumes reflect that. No longer are these female heroes meant for the male gaze and not much more. The costumes are cool, they鈥檙e practical, they鈥檙e badass. It may have taken a while to get here, but at least we鈥檙e starting to see it. Hell, even Melissa鈥檚 Benoist finally got pants after asking for them for years. Look at the new Supergirl鈥檚 costume, there鈥檚 no skirt or heeled shoes.
Also, this isn鈥檛 to say that sexualized costumes are evil or anything. I really did like Supergirl鈥檚 original costume, but it depends on who it鈥檚 for. I never liked Harley鈥檚 outfit in SS because it was meant for the male gaze, and I found it silly. While I appreciate Diana鈥檚 iconic look, there is something off-putting seeing her with a tiny skirt and corset-esc top while Batman and Flash get armour in the Justice League. Even in the CW鈥檚 Stargirl, Courtney wears a crop top and shorts that are above the knee. I like the costume, but it could be a full shirt at least. It鈥檚 not practical for her to be exposing that much skin considering how many times Cindy stabbed her or she got tossed into the pavement.聽 But if you鈥檙e going to put a woman in a sexy outfit, then do the same for men. And for the love of all things good in this world, stop putting women in heels in action movies. It鈥檚 ridiculous.

I absolutely love your art and I'd love to see where your au is going. But in Kwami buster master Fu said that wearing multiple miraculous can make the user go crazy so will we be seeing this in the au since Adrian will be wearing multiple miraculous over long periods of time (or at least longer than marinette did)
Oh, adrien might just go crazy all right but I blame it on only one miraculous.
