PRIMARY GOODNESS

Wired Magazine art director Tim Leong's infographic, featured in his new book, Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe, breaks down the costume color ratios of popular superheroes and villains. Pooling from over 40 characters, his results identify that we associate primary colors: red, blue and yellow with purity and heroism, while secondaries: orange, green and purple are reserved to project evil.
