The Color of Superheros

Z

Wrote Tim Leong in a superb article in the August issue of Wired, "Historically, hero costumes have been designed in red, yellow, and blue. Spandex in primary colors is a visual cue to a character's pure and heroic nature."

C

"The costume color conventions developed early on for supervillains too. Orange, green, and purple signal a character's evil and polluted intentions."
