Winged Rodent Man, you're my hero!

I'm thinking of making custom costumes to sell. I have an opportunity to advertise through a local comic shop and I suspect many clients will be looking for replicas of existing heros/heroines. What legalities do I need to be aware of in terms of copyright infringement?

I'm looking to create high-quality investment pieces for serious geeks, not just cheap polyester Halloween wear. Ideally I would make some samples and sketches of popular characters costumes as Batman will doubtless be more popular than Winged Rodent Man. Not all work would be knock-offs, it's all custom. Once in discussion with a client I don't think it'll be a problem as I will be commissioned to create something to their specifications, but I could be wrong there.
