Why do almost all of superheroes wear zentai costume?

Hi, all guys
I have a question that has been confusing me for a long time, i need your creative or funny thoughts to explain the phenomenon.
Why do almost all of superheroes wear zentai costume?
Such as sipderman, batman, superman, Power Ranger so on, that's just so interesting!
For me, i knew "zentai" was because of spiderman, he is one of my favorite character!
Listen, this is my opinion: wearing tight clothes can make their look hot or sexy, zentai is totally different from other clothes. Maybe special clothe also can show your special status!

So, what's your opinion?

Maybe it's a combination of different reasons:
  • stay anonym (many superheroes have double lives)
  • show of the fabulous body
  • make oneself easy recognizable (through bright colours)
  • security reasons (no parts stand out (except the cape) which can get caught during a chase)

My initial guess would have to be that it is easier to show a muscular form in a skintight outfit. For the artists that draw comics, I imagine it's a lot easier to draw a 'hero' figure where you can see the outline of their body, than when it's all covered up by baggy clothes.
For the female form, I think we can substitute some of the 'hero' status for sexiness. A female's curves, in themselves, can show power, and when they get the ratio of sexiness to 'hero' right, they tend to get it very right Wink

I think it also shows a bit of honesty to the character too: Someone who is dressed in a trench-coat and hat automatically looks shifty because their outfit seems as though they are hiding something, but if you put someone in something skintight, then there's nowhere to hide anything and will therefore come across as more trustworthy.
Capes are a little different; they offer an element of mystery too. It's all dependent on how it's used of course, but if you imagine someone covering the bottom of their face (with their cape draped over their forearm), you can see that they are trying to hide their identity and will forfeit some level of trust by doing so, but if they stand tall and let the cape flap around behind them, they are showing that they are hiding nothing and gain the maximum trust from on-lookers.

In my opinion, this would be the typical super-hero stance: A skintight costume to show their muscular form; their chest puffed out to accentuate that show of power; their hands on their hips, clenched in fists, with their heads held high to further accentuate it too; their cape blowing in the breeze behind them, showing that they are hiding nothing, and 'exposed' to on-lookers; and if you add a victim at their feet and have them stand with one foot on them, it shows that they are capable and even yet more powerful.
As you can see, power is everything to a superhero. But even to a superhero who has no 'powers', a look/stance that shows power can do just as good, and the skintight costumes help with this.

These are my thoughts, though I would not be surprised if I was way off the mark; I've never read a comic book in my life and I'm not really into cosplay, but just thinking of a typical superhero, this is what I manage to extract. I hope it's the sort of thing you were looking to read Smile

Perfect opinions!!! To make people recognize them easily, but protect their own lives great!!!

Have you ever tried to fight wearing street clothing? Tight spandex or zentai suits allow you to move easly. Also, it's harder to grab something as slippery as spandex or lycra than it would be wearing street clothing.

And I don't do fartbook eather.
