This Saturday, a thirsty crew of avengers and protectors of the people will make their way through South Beach streets seeking libations for the Superhero vs. Supervillain Pub Crawl. If we've learned anything from Halloween, it's that there's nothing more fantastic than dressing up and binge drinking.
You have a week to plan your outfit, so get going. Gather up your finest cape, body paint, your spider web gloves, and very tight tights. But don't just stick to the run-of-the-mill Marvel do-gooders like Batman and Superman, though. Get creative. Below, we put together a short list of under-appreciated heroes and villains.
- Randy Constan is a 50-year old man who believes he's the actual boy who never grows up, Peter Pan. This guy is a brave hero to men who love green worldwide. He sports a pixie cut and very green tights. With his shiny lip gloss, he'll add a bit of sex appeal to the crawl.
- Get serious about fighting crime and go as the Viper, an actual 20-year-old man who protects citizens of Columbia, Tennessee. Learn more below:
- If you're a little fey or a wannabe queer, there's always the Ambiguously Gay Duo, the animated superheroes from SNL. See the costumes in action:

- Speaking of crappy movies, get creative on an old box and be a Transformer. That's fierce.
