Marvel superheroes have never looked so, well, chic. These oh-so on-trend illustrations are the work of  Peter McNierney - a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York - who was invited by Dolce and Gabbana to give the crime-fighting allstars a rather luxe makeover for Swide, their digital magazine. Each comic hero is wearing duds from the Italian fashion house’s spring / summer 2013 collection. To get your spidey-style senses tingling, here’s the top three most stylish comic book heroes who don’t need designer threads to look cool.

3) Professor X / Professor Charles Xavier

The Look: Oxford Don

Would Wear: Gieves and Hawkes, Norton & Sons, Huntsman

Why?: What he lacks folically he sure makes up for fashionably. This is a guy who ain’t afraid to embrace plaid, tweed, pinstripes and everything in-between – all while rolling along in his wheelchair. Academically-informed with preppy overtones, his style is unashamedly geek chic. The only question is, does he use those telepathic powers to read next season’s trends?

2) Gambit / Remy Etienne Lebau

The Look: Franco Pirate Dandy

Would Wear: A Child of the Jago, John Galliano, and most definitely thrift store remnants

Why?: Given that he looks fresh off a Parisian runway, it’s a no-brainer. The A-line flowing mop and insouciantly hewn 5 o’clock shadow all combine effortlessly with that overcoat and make for a seriously bohemian statement. Plus any guy that can rock a pink bodysuit without a whiff of homoeroticism is doing something right.

1) Batman / Bruce Wayne

The Look: Gothic Noir

Would Wear: E Tatuz, Tom Ford, Armani (actually Christian Bale did in the movies)

Why?: Let’s face it, with the ultra-dapper, lantern jawed Bruce Wayne as an alter-ego, the Caped Crusader was always gonna come up trumps. One part brooding, to two parts suave, dude rocks a tux as dextrously as matte-black vulcanised rubber and no doubt has all of Savile Row on speed dial.
