Capes, tights, masks, underwear outside of pants, these are the tropes about the costumes worn by the heroes and villains of superhero stories.

Some of these can even involve ClarkKenting, and often lead to an IconicOutfit.

And it doesn't hurt to have a HeroicBuild, or the MostCommonSuperpower, when wearing these.
