Superheroes have become a pretty big deal lately, especially with all the movies coming out based on Marvel and DC comic books. As a result, there is a large number of superhero fans out there. Some of them are just getting interested in superheroes while others may have been fascinated for a long time.
Whatever the situation, fans do have a tendency to love pretty much anything to do with their chosen superhero (or superheroes). With this in mind, I've rounded up a range of sugar cookies from the store owners at Etsy. All of these are themed to suit superhero fans in some way or another.
Personally, I find that sugar cookies make fantastic gifts. For one thing, this is a type of cookie that most people enjoy and they are considered a classic. However, the real advantage is that you can customize them so easily. So, you will often find sugar cookies in different shapes and styles. So, it shouldn't really be a surprise that a number of creators on Etsy have taken to making superhero-themed sugar cookies.
Take a look at my finds and let me know which ones you think really stand out. There are literally thousands of variations out there, so I tried to limit myself to just the 25 I thought were most interesting and diverse! And for the adults in the room, here are some superhero coffee cups you can buy online too!
26. Batman and Robin Logos
The Batman logo is pretty classic and seems to turn up everywhere, but it's nice to see the Robin logo too, as this one isn't nearly as common.
25. Avengers Faces
With all the Avengers movies that we've seen, this collection makes a lot of sense. Now, Spiderman hasn't been a part of the Avengers in the movies, but he has been in some of the more recent comic books.
24. Batman and Superman Logos
When it comes to superheroes, Batman and Superman are probably the most widely recognized, which would make this set a great choice for kids.
23. Iron Man!
This set of cookies is perfect for anyone who is specifically a fan of Iron Man.
22. Superhero Reveal Onesie
I love these little onesies because they are a bit different. The creator also allows some selection when it comes to the design you end up with.
21. Multicolored Batman Symbols
These Batman logo cookies seem to be designed as party favors, although you could use them for other purposes too.
20. Girlie Superhero Logos
Pink versions of common superhero logos may be an especially good choice for young girls, although older female fans would probably be offended, so be careful with who you give these to.
19. Batman Logo
I did say that the Batman logo was common and here's another example of this.
18. Lots of Spiderman Faces
For most superheroes, the image of choice tends to be the logo but when it comes to Spiderman, items like these face-based cookies are much more common.
17. For the Wonder Woman Fans
There is a combination of styles with these cookies but every part of the set does tie back to Wonder Woman.
16. Comic Book Cookies
We're talking about superheroes here, so I would be remiss if I didn't include some of the corny comic book sounds. Although personally, these cookies remind me strongly of the old Batman TV show.
15. Batman Face Logo Cookie
The customization on this Batman logo is interesting but it would work well for a birthday part.
14. Spiderman Cookie Pops
I love the way that Spiderman's face has been depicted on these cookies.
13. Comic Book Numbers
There is a lot of repetition in the different superhero cookies but you have to admit that this set is completely different and is very cool.
12. Pow! Zap! Bam!
Here's another example of comic book sounds, although this time they are cookies on a stick.
11. Little Heart Avengers Cookies
I'm quite taken with these little cookies. They include a wider variety of images, which makes them look great visually.
10. More Pows and Bams
I know I've already shown a few cookies based on comic book sounds but I had to include these because they look so stunning. Plus, there's the Batman logo in the mix – so this set really does seem like that old TV show.
9. Avenger Fists, Faces and Logos
This set is a little bit different and I love the way that you have both faces and symbols for each of the four chosen heroes.
8. Girly Comic Book Phrases
This set is another example of comic book sounds, although this time they appear to be more female-friendly.
7. Yellow and Black Batman Logos
Here's another example of the classic Batman logo. I actually like the way you can see the cookie under these logos as this makes it look a little different than the other versions of this logo on the list.
6. Lego Superheroes
These cookies would be a lot of fun for anyone who is a fan of the Lego superhero games or just of superheroes in general.
5. More Superhero Logos
Here is another set that focuses on symbols for some of the most common heroes.
4. Superhero Onesies
These cookies are a little bit different and would be great for a baby shower. I love the fact that they've included Flash and Green Lantern in the mix, as these heroes get left out a lot right now.
3. Gotham City Skyline
These cookies could mean a lot of different things, but to me, it looks like the Gotham city skyline, which really does make them superhero related.
2. Spiderman and Green Lantern
I mentioned Green Lantern before, so I was pretty pleased to find another cookie set that included Green Lantern – although this time it is his logo that's in the set. Unfortunately, I suspect that some people wouldn't recognize the logo because he really hasn't been all that popular as a hero.
1. Not Superman but Super Dad
Most of the cookies on this list would be good gifts for kids but this particular entry is targeted at dads and would be perfect for Father's day.
