This Halloween, you've got some pretty epic plans to dress up as your fave crime-fighting character. Between the Marvel and DC universes, there are so many superheroes to choose from, not to mention all the other superheroes in movies, comic books, and TV shows you know and love. Once your costume's set, there's a final matter of business to address before you start saving the world. Every superhero needs a trusty sidekick, and these superhero costume captions will be exactly that this All Hallows' Eve.

Let's face it: A great costume pic for all your friends to see and like is #necessary on Halloween, but coming up with a caption could be your kryptonite. Luckily, there are a variety of Instagram captions for superheroes that’ll match whatever costume you’re planning. If you're dressing up as a flying superhero like Superman or Storm, try getting an action shot of you "taking flight" to post with superhero quotes or Instagram captions for superhero snaps. This is pretty easy to capture with the self-timer on your camera, or you could always record a video of you jumping and take a screenshot of you in the air.

Some superheroes like Spider-Man and Wonder Woman have iconic poses, such as Spidey shooting his web slingers and Wonder Woman with her hands on her hips. Find your hero’s signature pose and share with a superhero caption or superhero puns that match their moves. You could even get a group together to go as the family from The Incredibles, and picking out some superhero movie quotes to go along with your post will be as easy as fighting bad guys.

When the time comes to post your pics, use any of these superhero costume captions that even Edna Mode would approve of.
