Helmets don’t just provide protection but they provide an alias for the wearer. MorphCostumes decided to take a look at some of the helmets we’ve come to associate the wearer with like Magneto, Darth Vader and Deadmau5.

Iconic Helmets

The infographic looks at some of the helmets worn in comics, films, games and in music. It shows just how far some would go to keep a persona alive, an identity a secret or just how much protection these people sometimes require.

Some of our favourite iconic helmets include those worn by Daft Punk, the Master Chief helmet, the iconic Stormtrooper helmet and the helmet worn by Judge Dredd.
