Superhero Costumes

Superman Costume - George Reeves played Superman, the Man of Steel from the planet Krypton on the sci-fi series ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN/SYN/1951-57.

Superman wore a capped costume of red, white, blue and yellow. The original costume made for the series was actually brown and light gray to contrast better with the black and white photography used on the earlier episodes.

When George Reeves died (he allegedly committed suicide in 1959) he was buried in the same suit that he had worn while playing Superman's alter-ego Clark Kent, the mild-mannered reporter who worked for The Daily Planet newspaper.
