A costume partly inspired by Marilyn Manson may be the most spectacular super-villain get-up ever seen in the movies. Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who dressed up as superhero Red Mist in Kick-Ass, has ventured to the dark side in the upcoming sequel and is inspired to take on the evil pseudonym The Mother F%&*^r by donning S&M gear he discovers hidden inside his dead father's gun case. Costume designer Sammy Sheldon Differ says it was the most complex costume to create out of the dozens made for the action thriller: “We played around with the texture and the zips. The idea was to not have a cross-dressing feel. When he first puts on the underwear and holds the guns, oddly he didn't look that bad. We looked at people who dressed up in that hardcore rock look – Marilyn Manson, My Chemical Romance and the guys from Green Day – and tried to mix it with S&M gear in a way that tried to make it look like a superhero.”

With superheroes nearly extinct at the start of the 1950s, DC Comics made them central to modern popular culture once more by infusing them with science fiction elements and including ever-more fantastic tales. The results delivered the first-ever “reboot” of Golden Age greats with the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman as well as the hit television show Batman. The Silver Age of DC Comics chronicles it all, right down to the wacky shenanigans of the small-screen Batman, which made him the embodiment of the camp sensibility of the Sixties.
