Summer's first major blockbuster, "X-Men: First Class", opens this weekend. With that in mind, we've been seeing tons of superhero-inspired garb worthy to wear in any metropolis.

Last year's "TRON: Legacy" inspired its own collaboration with Opening Ceremony, and other comic book characters such as Superman and Catwoman have influenced runway shows from Jeremy Scott to Jean Paul Gaultier. Vogue Nippon's own Anna Dello Russo has taken a no-fear approach to dressing that has turned her into something of an anime character of the fashion world.
