In all the superhero movies out there today, the good guys have one thing in common. They have some kind of uniform for fighting evil and crime. Whether it is Superman and his cape or Batman and his utility belt or Wonder Woman and her Bracelets of Submission, superheroes have costumes and gadgets that help them fight crime.
