I figure if you are going to buy a compression shirt, you might as well go with superhero compression shirts over the boring run of the mill gear.
They are especially great if you have a beer gut or are slightly lacking in the muscle department because you have just started training…
The cleverly designed superhero musculature will help to cover up those horrible unsightly curves. 😉
They will also probably look quite good on you if you already have the body of a superhero I guess, but I am speaking from a personal point of view… I’ll stick to what I know.
Perhaps I should ask somebody to create a professor X compression shirt just for me, so I can confidently wheel myself around the gym looking like Charles Xavier.
Anyway, enough about me. Let’s take a look at the 13 most popular men’s superhero compression shirts list.
Any guesses which Marvel character is the most popular? (And vote for your own favourite by clicking here.)
Oh, and by the way, yes… Some of these characters are DC and not Marvel. It’s a mistake I am ashamed of, but I have learned to forgive myself.
13. Incredible Hulk Compression Shirt
Yes, you too can look like a behemoth around normal puny humans with the Incredible Hulk Compression shirt on your mahoosive torso.
This one is perfect for the hulking great bodybuilders out there. Your gym rat buddies will be green with envy when they see it. Probably.
Maybe not right for you if you are the marathon type though huh? (Check out the Flash compression shirt if that’s your bag.)
Hulk Quotes To Yell While training
“Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”Dr. David Bruce Banner
“Hulk, SMASH!”The Hulk
And let’s not forget the classic…
12. Wolverine Compression Shirt
In 11th place, first we have a complete copout… kinda.
Yes, we couldn’t find an X-Men compression shirt with Wolverine on it at first unfortunately so we included this. But you’ll…. erm…
…honestly look just like him in this Wolverine compression shirt…
…which is sort of more of a vest. (It is a compression vest, however, so not all bad news.)
We recommend just getting a bit of blood, dirt, and sweat on it so it looks really authentic.
And it’s probably worth thinking about taping some scissors to the back of your fists so there is no mistaking who you’re meant to be.
Sorry about that, I’ll try harder on the next in our lineup of superhero compression tees.

Not Really A Wolverine Compression Shirt, But Close (Also Available In Other Colors)
I take it all back, I managed to find this a second Wolverine superhero workout shirt.
Alriiight, I found one and the pathetic replica vest tops!

“If you cage the beast, the beast will get angry!”Wolverine
“The pain lets you know you’re still alive.”Wolverine
11. Deadpool Compression Shirt
This is the compression shirt Deadpool actually wore in the movie…
Not really but it’s the only dead cool, Deadpool compression shirt Deadpool would be seen dead in.
Try saying that ten times fast!
Deadpool Quotes To Yell While training
“Daddy needs to express some rage.”Deadpool
“I’m touching myself tonight.”Deadpool
10. Iron Man Compression Shirt
So just to be clear, we are not talking about a triathlon ironman compression shirt (as in for the races specifically), rather the Marvel character ‘Iron Man’. (The dude who fell out with Captain America.)
Had to get that out of the way as I wouldn’t want anyone buying stuff that isn’t specifically made for what they need. :-/
Anyway, to launch back into my terrible salesy type chatter…
Yes, you too can look like an arms dealing oversized can of tomato soup with this frighteningly realistic-looking Under Armour Iron Man compression shirt.

Iron Man Quotes To Yell While training
“Give me a scotch. I’m starving.”Tony Stark
“A wise man once asked, ‘Is it better to be feared or respected?’ I say, is it too much to ask for both?”Iron Man
9. Thor Compression Shirt
The main problem with this superhero compression shirt?
It doesn’t come with Mjolnir, the indestructible hammer that allows you to fly and stuff… Gutted!
Ah well, that’s life. You never know, however, if you buy the Thor compression shirt and stand around in the gym with your hand out, Mjolnir just might fly into your hand with a bit of luck.
Let us know in the comments if it works out for you.
In (what I think were) the words of Odin:
“Whosoever wears this Thor compression shirt, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”

“This mortal form grows weak. I require sustenance!”Thor
“Oh no, this is Earth, isn’t it?”Thor
8. Green Lantern Compression Shirt
Don’t take this the wrong way, but…
Ooh… Nice ring!
Much like Thors hammer, this Green Lantern compression shirt unfortunately doesn’t come with a power ring that does all sorts of neat stuff.
The ring actually harnesses the power of will, and is considered one of the most powerful weapons in the Marvel universe.
You already have plenty of will though right? you’re training regularly and stuff so…
Who needs a lousy power ring? The flashy

7. The Flash Compression Shirt
For the runners among you who are also fans of the fastest man alive (Usain Bolt), why not try out ‘The Flash’ compression shirt for size?
Wearing this particular Marvel compression shirt guarantees you will run much faster if you really concentrate and train really hard for a few years.
For the evil among you (watch out for that Punisher character!) who hate the Flash, Zoom compression shirts are also available. (There is also a neat Flash long sleeve compression shirt at the link to the Zoom compression shirt above.)

6. The Punisher Compression Shirt
The rather serious looking chap on the right (or below if you’re on a mobile device perhaps?) who looks like he wants to punish you, is modeling the Heatgear Under Armour Punisher compression shirt.
A guy with nothing left to lose is pretty dangerous. The sort of dude you want to bump into in a dark alley if you are a wrongdoer eh?
Now go punish the iron!
Punisher Quotes To Yell While training
“Those who do evil to others – the killers, the rapists, psychos, sadists – you will come to know me well.”The Punisher

5. Captain America Compression Shirt
If you are a sickeningly nice, clean cut, law abiding person, then the long sleeve Captain America compression shirt is for you!
Simply don the super hero compression shirt and then seek out people who are seriously punching out of your weight division and fight them, just because they tell lies or something else bad.
Yes, wearing this heroic piece of gear, you too can reenact Civil War in your local gym.
For those who prefer Bucky (or just fancy themselves as a semi-immortal Soviet assassin) over old cap’, there is also a Captain America Winter Soldier compression shirt also available.

3. Black Panther Compression Shirt
Get one of these bad boy superhero workout shirts on and align yourself with the great panther god ‘Bast’.
Hey, put your claws away!
I’m not saying the shirt will grant you acute senses, enhanced strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, healing, and reflexes, but hey…
No harm in letting your imagination run wild when you stand in front of the mirror in this sleek Black Panther compression shirt now is there?

Either way, if your a spidey fan, here’s the perfect long sleeve superhero compression shirt for ya.
Just don’t act too stuck up because you look so good in this thing. Get it… “Stuck up?” *Groan
