The past few years have seen pop culture completely taken over by the superhero craze. It’s impossible to go to the movies, turn on the TV, or flip through a magazine without seeing at least a few caped crusaders ready to take on the bad guys.
And because superheroes are having such a moment, it only makes sense that they’ve become the go-to Halloween costume choice for everyone from superhero-obsessed kids, to comic book nerds, to—you guessed it—pets.
Chances are, you already consider your dog a hero, so why not get him the Halloween costume to go along with his superpowers (e.g. super snuggle powers)? Let’s take a look out our picks for this year’s top superhero costumes for dogs:
Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, is one of the snarkiest superheroes out there. So if your dog has a little bit of sass in them, this superhero costume is a complete no-brainer.Buy Now on Amazon

DC Comics Wonder Woman Pet Costume (Verified Review)
Is your dog strong, fierce, bold…basically a wonder woman? Well, then it only makes sense to get her this Wonder Woman costume to match!
We love the costume’s iconic, instantly-recognizable styling (complete with headband) and metallic shimmer. Test subject schnauzer mix Vera (pictured below) wore it in size large which fit well, and went on easily via chest velcro closures and two front leg holes. The skirt is open from the underside, allowing your dog freedom of movement, though Vera found the drape, which touched her legs as she walked, a little distracting.
Vera also wasn’t crazy about the headband, though if your dog is too, you could simply go headband-free (the bread and butter here is obviously the fabulous, shimmering bodysuit).
We were also pleased with the outfit’s material, a soft and stretchy polyester that a nicer quality than we expected.
Our overall take? A great, classic superhero dog costume for your pet.
