What makes a bad superhero or villain costume? That’s a tough question, because in the world of comic books you’re favorite characters can get away with a lot without looking too silly. Capes for instance, bat ears, and even underwear over trousers! But which comic book characters through the years has over stepped the line that little bit too much and committed some series fashion crimes? Keep reading and I hope you enjoy the Top 10 Worst Marvel Superhero and Villain Costumes.
#10. Mister Sinister
WHY: I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this costume. From the tassel type cape and the ridiculously high collar to the cross breed pixie/ kinky thigh high length boots, topped of with a nice big red diamond on the forehead. How very S&M it all is. It’s so bad I can’t help but kinda like it!
#9. Power Man
WHY: The hero of the New York ghetto didn’t look very “hard” in his original get up. Let’s face it; the rock hard man with skin made of steel wore a girly head band with a yellow blouse and looked more like a dancer from Fame than the street tough hero we all know and love. He has now thankfully updated himself to just a plain black tee and jeans, although I would like him to sport some sort of costume again, just not one as flamboyant as the original.
#8. Yellow Jacket
WHY: It’s those black wing things. What the hell are they there for? They just look ridiculous. The antennae ears don’t look too cool either.
#7. Captain Britain/Union Jack
WHY: I stuck these two in together because they are both as bad as each other. They are both rip off’s of Captain America and it seems not much thought was put into the names or the costume designs either. They are so corny, and being British myself, it’s kind of embarrassing that the UK has no really cool superheroes. Who says just because they’re British heroes that they have to have the Union Jack plastered all over them? Its an obvious and easy design that makes them look like a couple of chavs!
#6. Captain Wonder
WHY: From The Twelve series. Captain Wonder was brought from WWII to the present. Bet he wished he packed some trousers! And what’s with the fin too?
