Putting on a cardigan can feel like suiting up like a superhero this fall thanks to geek fashion designer Catherine Elhoffer‘s latest collection for Elhoffer Design. On Friday Elhoffer revealed three Marvel-inspired cardigans that take comic book chic to a whole new level for fans.

The three cardigans are called Bandit, Punk, and Corps, and feature unique takes on familiar designs and color schemes you’ll recognize from the Marvel universe. The three quarters sleeved, cropped waist cardigans have one button at the neck, are 100 percent acrylic, and are made in the United States. The Bandit and Punk designs are priced at $40 for sizes extra small to large and $42 for sizes extra large to 3XL.

The Corps cardigan on the other hand is priced at $43 for sizes extra small to large and $45 for extra large to 3XL. Elhoffer told the Daily Dot in an email that the price is higher for the Corps option due to having back and sleeve detailing. The Corps cardigan even has a button shaped like a star.

According to Elhoffer, the cardigans will ship in time for Halloween, so you can use this as part of a casual costume or add it to your everyday wardrobe. There aren’t enough geeky cardigans, especially three-quarter sleeve ones, on the market so it’s nice to see these new additions.
