Wonderwoman is always a classic!Or catwoman but thats probably gonna be a popular one!I remember going to a fancy dress party and there were two catwomen and it wasnt pretty! Ummmm Supergirl, the girls from Xmen, Poison ivy. Poison Ivy would be good(shes from batman) as you can wear all green and sew some flowers of fake plants onto your clothes!
Heres some pictures:

Hope this helps
p.s as you can probably tell my b/f is a comic book geek!

unless you want the corny campbells can on ur chest (soup-er hero), make your own superhero!
make a funky cape
a matching letter for your front
undies on the outside
a mask
and you're good to go!

if it's a fancy dress party and you want to be a villain, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty would be fun.  I had one of these parties years ago and went as Superwoman. I stapled yellow paper stars on some thrift store found blue slacks i cut into shorts, wore a yellow tank top, black shiny knee high boots, a plastic tiara with a red paper star taped on the front, and a cheepy costume whip as my accessory. It wasn't fancy, but it was cheap.  My boyfriend went as a villian and dressed like a WTO delegate(yes we were in seattle at the time and it was a few weeks after the protests), with a nerdy white button up shirt, horn rimmed glasses, name tag denoting his delegate status, and a handful of fake money.  Otherwise some other fun ideas might be Rainbow Bright, sailor moon, any other disney stepmothers, a fembot, Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle.....

Don't let the stereotype of a character keep you from dressing up in an outfit you'd love to wear!  Maybe you'll be the new and improved version...  Poison Ivy sounds great too--perhaps a bottle of calamine lotion for the hosts?

Check out the "Incredibles" costumes.  These would be super easy to replicate, especially elasti-girl's.

I would rather be bitten by a snake than walk thru a spiderweb and not know where the spider is!

Bring along some thread, bits of fabric, beads, whatever you have from the crafts you're into, and go as (drumroll please)... Captain Crafty!   Grin  Here to save the world from boring clothes and mass-produced household knickknacks!  Defender of punk knitters and men who crochet!  Destroyer of cute little geese in bonnets!

If you have a hot glue gun, make a holster for it and bring that as your weapon.  Or wield a couple of knitting needles ninja-style.
