PANAMA CITY, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Wonder Woman isn’t the only superhero getting a brand new costume – Captain America is next.

Projectrooftop.com, a forum that invites artists to redesign new, modern-day duds for iconic superheroes like Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Superman, and Batman, is hosting a contest now through August 1 looking for a new take on Captain America’s costume.

Project: Rooftop co-founder Chris Arrant says ideal designs should blend modern elements with important classic details such as Captain America’s shield and patriotic colors.

The superhero should look updated but not completely different, which is where DC Comics’ new Wonder Woman is getting so much heat.

Also, Captain America shouldn’t have a cape because he’s never really worn one, but should probably sport tight- fitting clothes that allow for quick, stealth movements.

Arrant is excited to see what people come up with since designers have gotten crazy creative for past contests, especially with Wolverine’s wardrobe.
