"You look like a star spangled idiot."
Mick Rory to Nate Heywood[src]

The Steel suit is a suit created by Ray Palmer, based on sketches by Nate Heywood, for the latter to use as the superhero Steel.

Overview

The full suit consists of red and blue pants, a blue vest with a white star in the center of it (similar to his grandfather's suit) with red accents around it and blue shoulder pads, a pair of blue gloves and arm guards and a red helmet with white and blue accents.[1]

History

After wishing for his own suit, Nate Heywood sketched a design. Ray Palmer took the sketch, making a few adjustments, and made the suit for him as a gift.

He first wore the suit for when the Legends helped Team Arrow, Team Flash and Supergirl fight the Dominators.

Functions

  • Identity concealment: Nate uses a red helmet with white and blue accents to conceal his identity.

Trivia

  • Similar to the first Green Arrow suit and the White Canary suit, the suit does not include sleeves.
  • The suit, like Nathan Heywood/Citizen Steel's original suit from the comics, is similar to the suit of the famous Captain America's of Marvel Comics. According to the costume designers it was hard to make the Steel suit for the show as they wished to differentiate between Steel and Captain America.[2]
