6. Tom Welling – Black (Smallville)
I understand the irony of where I rank this costume despite my recent praises of comic book accuracy and how Tom Welling’s Season 9 outfit is clearly more faithful. However, I admire the black trench coat approach of this costume, which showed up in Season 9 of Smallville, more as it invokes a unique noirish detective quality and, practically speaking, blends in during nightly adventures far more effectively than a red leather jacket. Furthermore, and once again, it is better than a CGI Superman Returns suit.
