Worst. Costume. Ever!

edited April 2007 in Graphic Violence
I'm not sure if this thread has been done before, my apologies if it has. I just thought it would be interesting to see what people thought was the worst Superhero costume EVER. I think comic readers get a little numb to crazy looking costumes, but even the most hardened of souls finds one that just stops them dead in their tracks and think "oh man that looks lame!"

For me it is... Yellowjacket!

Whenever I see it I want to laugh out loud at how it looks. How would anyone keep a straight face wearing something like that? How is limiting your vision with shoulder blinkers a "good thing" for someone who fights crime? The fact that he still has it on today (or went back to it, whatever) is just the icing on the cake :lol:

So, what's your worst costume ever? I'm sure people are going to have absolutely no problem topping mine!

    The more recent depictions of the yellowjacket suit don't have those shoulder things so ridiculously huge, but yeah thats pretty funny.

    I don't know if it counts as a costume but I really don't like Beast's cat-like form, I prefer the old blue ape look.

    Well, they're apparently not fond of stealing their pics, but the second outfit of Kitty's is basically horrible

    I always thought Speedball's costume was goofy as hell. Iron Fist's costume was probably cool 30 years ago. Luke Cage's 70s costume was pretty terrible too. Also, olol Robin, amirite?

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    I'm sorry... but Nightwing's first costume is way worse then any Robin costume.

    Yellow Daredevil. DD himself is always awesome, just never seemed like he should be taken seriously in that getup.

    The yellow suit has nothing on the terrible cyber ninja thing. I don't even know how to describe it.

    The one where he was running around as Laurent Levasseur, too.

    Also, the yellow suit can look cool if done right.

    I personally don't care for Punisher's new getup.

    Azrael's last costume kind of blew too before he got all shot up.

    Wearing a strapless outfit with a bust as big as hers while doing superheroics is just asking for wardrobe malfunctions. Which would make it the best outfit ever if mainstream comics had nudity.

    I don't even know who this is, but I'm willing to go on record saying that not only is that costume awesome, she is the most awesome superheroine ever.

    Also, every single one of Kitty Pryde's costumes has been lame (except the plain old X costume, but even that costume isn't awesome).

    It's Molly Hayes, in her "Princess Powerful" outfit, from Runways.

    Which you should know. Because you should be reading Runaways.

    Something to do with super strength/toughness, and the ability to fling himself at people.

    And it's past tense, he was there (as was his daughter, the much hotter Puck) when Alpha Flight got wiped.

    Chairface Chippendale isn't wearing a costume. It's just a regular men's suit.

    You can't count the guy's head as a costume.
