Ratman's recycled boxwear menace is just one of many fine costumes io9 readers posted in the io9 Halloween costume Flickr pool. Below, check out a three hot superhero costumes.
Schlaud4 gave us a glimpse of himself in three different hot costumes: Mega Man, Anakin (waving that light saber in the bathroom — dangerous!), and dark Spider-man. Oh the hotness! It is too much.
