For every great super hero there needs to be an equally super disguise. While these garments usually come in the spandex and tights variety, German artist Adrian Riemann has spent the last few months giving some of his favorite costumed crusaders hip downtown makeovers in ubiquitous cool-kid brands such as Surface 2 Air, Cheap Monday, April 77, and Acne Jeans. Some of the illustrious heroes to get a new look courtesy of Riemann include He-Man, She- Ra, Stratos, and Skeletor (above). While reworking classic characters through fan-fiction  is nothing new, what’s different is that Riemann is combining several of his loves- fashion, action heroes, and illustration, to create something that would be just as at home in the pages of Teen Vogue or Nylon, as on the racks at the local comic store.
