The Spirit is the comic book-inspired film starring Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendez, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gabriel Macht.

Directed by Frank Miller, the film was based on a character created by Will Eisner. What separates this hero from other fictional crime fighters like Batman, Superman and a slew of others is the fact that The Spirit wears a business suit with a small mask, a red tie and a fedora hat.

Back in the 1940s, Eisner said his editors "wanted a heroic character, a costumed character. They asked me if he’d have a costume. And I put a mask on him and said, ‘Yes, he has a costume!’"

The Spirit’s theatrical release in the USA is December 25th. Stats for Fashion-Challenged Superheros Trending: Older & Average
