Tim Gunn as a superhero? Make it work!

Easily the best part of Bravo's Project Runway is Tim Gunn, who has served as the amiable and impeccably dressed mentor to the competing designers for the past five seasons.

Now just as the hit TV series moves networks to Lifetime, Gunn makes the leap to comic books in the pages of Marvel's Models Inc., which debuts on Aug. 26.

The four-issue miniseries, by Paul Tobin and Vicenc Villagrasa, is set during New York Fashion Week as Millicent (Millie the Model) Collins becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young set designer.

It's up to Mary Jane Watson, Patsy Walker, Jill Jerold and Chili Storm to clear Millie of the crime.

But what will Tim Gunn do? The New York Times reports that in the second story of Issue 1, the 55-year-old Gunn dons Iron Man's armor to save a fashion exhibit from evildoers.

He'll even receive a variant cover, courtesy of Phil Jimenez.

Gunn, undoubtedly, will (ahem) make it work.
