Fans of Valiant Comics' Faith will soon be able to suit up as their favorite superhero thanks to a new apparel collaboration between Valiant Entertainment and retailer ThinkGeek.

The clothing line, designed by Catherine Elhoffer of Elhoffer Design, features three different items that are currently available: the Faith Longline Cardigan ($49.99), the Faith Cropped Cardigan ($49.99), and the Harbinger Unisex Sweater ($59.99). Sizes range from XS to 4X, which means the apparel will be as accessible to fans as Faith herself is.

Part of what makes Faith — whom Elhoffer describes to SYFY WIRE as a "wonderful superhero" — so beloved is how relatable she is. She's a comic-book- and pop-culture-loving plus-size woman whose superpowers include flight and telekinesis. As Zephyr, she's the only plus-size superhero currently headlining a comic series and, as such, has become a body-positive hero for many.

It makes sense, then, that Valiant would reach out to Elhoffer, who designs with plus-size women in mind and who is also a comic-book- and pop-culture-loving lady.

Speaking to SYFY WIRE, Elhoffer explained how the collaboration happened.

"As a new small business, it was a shock and thrill to get an email from the amazing people at Valiant Entertainment seeking me out and asking me to design a collection for a fellow plus-size gal. The entire process has been just a roller-coaster ride of fun and excitement, and I'm just beyond ecstatic that it's finally live and real," she said."I'm so happy with how this business I started just two years ago has grown into making licensed apparel for such a wonderful superhero."

If this Valiant Entertainment and ThinkGeek collaboration is as popular as the comics, it's a good bet we'll see more cool items in the future.
