Well, all capes are there to help show the hero flying, but I think I must consult a higher authority on this...

Captain Marvel's (Billy Batson) cape is the best but Dr. Strange's is a close second.

I really like John Constantine's... Wait that's a trench coat... The most Bad Ass article of clothing!

I like Storm's wrist cape, but Batman and Spawn's capes are the only ones that actually serve a real purpose.

@Blood1991: Agreed 
 
That's one of Storm's most  notable fashion statements.Her wrist capes are almost just as iconic as her tiara and blue eyes. 
 
Spawns cape is bad ass. 
 
Lets not forget Banshee's arm-pit cape..lol

Superman's new 52 black outline S cape is awesome. Definitely makes the list

Nice Wonder Woman pics with a cape. But she does not consistently wear them and is traditionally not portrayed with one.

Doesn't get more awesome than this:

Spawn is the king of capes as far as i'm concerned.

#18 Posted by TheThe (1709 posts) - - Show Bio

DC comics : Captain Marvel. Marvel comics : Storm. Their capes are unique, recognisable and iconic.

But overall, Captain Marvel's cape is stunning. Really beautiful.

The cape is one of the main things that I have always liked about Batman

Here it is!!

A TOP 10 RANKING OF THE MOST CREATIVE, MOST DRAMATIC AND MOST INFLUENTIAL CAPES THAT MATTERED THE MOST IN COMICS HISTORY!!

Agree?? Disagree?? Check it out for yourself true believer!!!

http://hero-envy.blogspot.com/2012/06/top-10-greatest-superhero-capes-of-all.html

The ranking isn't right and I would delete Hyperion and Vision on the list and put Ororo Munroe and Magneto. Storm and Magneto have iconic capes.

It's all about the wrists.

#25 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman, Batman, Spawn, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, and Storm's are the only ones that are really unique.

1) Spawn

2) Batman

3) Doctor Strange

They all look pretty cool and they're actually practical... most of the other ones don't really have any other purpose other than being some kind of fashion statement... though Superman's is probably seen as one of the most iconic and I suppose that there are a few characters like Captain Marvel and Vision that have a different type of cape, there's really not that much more to them.

I'm glad Captain Marvel was #1. I agree with that. Elegant, yet cool. Spawn's is cool, too. The one cape I might add is the Shroud. He's a relatively minor character, but his large, flowing black cape adds to his mysterious and threatening aura, much like Batman, plus I believe the cape actually has some inherent powers, which makes it even more cool.

A lot of you guys who are complaining about Storm and Magneto being left off the list didn't read the entire article.

READ IT ALL and then make your comments and critiques!!

#38 Posted by cosmicallyaware1 (2930 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I'll agree that Spawn's cape is seriously cool and unique! The cape ITSELF has character (who else can claim that that besides Cloak..). As far as recognizable iconic, I agree that the top teir are : Dr. Strange (soooooo cool!), Batman, Cap.Marvel(even though, i'm sorry to admit, i always thought it was a bit....weird, idk....) and, Superman. Supes flowing cape is SERIOUSLY iconic.

#39 Posted by Agent9149 (2888 posts) - - Show Bio

Storm's cape should be in the Top 10, it is just a one of the kind and is just PURE DIVA

#40 Posted by Enosisik (1153 posts) - - Show Bio

Captain Marvel's cape looks like someone tied a towel around their neck.

#41 Edited by The_Thunderer (2890 posts) - - Show Bio

My Top 3:

#42 Posted by TDK_1997 (13656 posts) - - Show Bio

Spawn and Batman.

#43 Posted by Queso6p4 (1411 posts) - - Show Bio

Although I get the criteria Hero Envy used, I disagree with the ranking but it's all in good fun. It's also awesome that DiDio commented on his blog. Spawn has to have the coolest/most distinctive cape followed closely by Dr. Strange. I'd put Batman, Cloak, and Storm after them in some kind of order.

#44 Posted by venomyak (1443 posts) - - Show Bio

Cloak and Azreal need to be mentioned.

I like Superman's classic cape.
Though I feel Spawn's cape is much too over the top to be taken seriously.

Bang!!!

#50 Posted by lightsout (1811 posts) - - Show Bio

since it's bumped. I'd have to say Spawn needs to be a little higher (though I agree it's a little over-the-top), and Storm's needs to be on there. I think, despite my avatar, I'd have to go with Batman as my favorite. It goes with the bat/demon feel he tries to put out, and it actually serves some purpose (creating a larger target area for bullets in the shadows, so some may just pass right through the cape & not hit his body). The image of Batman crouched down with the cape all around him (similar to below), is just so iconic to me.
