The NZA Posted November 21, 2009 Share Posted November 21, 2009 I was thinking about how far we've come since the 90's in comics, when costume changes were big events - even when they fizzled (Jim Lee's X-men uniforms were short-lived, as i recall). I'm one of the few here who can admit to enjoying early Spawn, and even when Todd got writers like Moore and Gaiman on board for an arc or so, the "big" chance to an open-mask of shoelaces through the face and uh, adding chains? was some kinda big deal, at least according to Wizard. anyway. so this thread's about aesthetics. what're youre favorite costumes in comics? what would you like to see come back? Me, ive often bitched about how anti-stealthy the banana suit is for , much less why he'd need a mask. he's had dozens and ive liked very few, but the Byrne era orange-and-borwn bothers me the least. prolly cause it reminds me of the Sam Keith stuff, too. hands-down, i cant think of better costumes than Spider-Man. his original is still one of comics' finest, and his alternates - 2099, black/symbiote one, etc are more hits than misses. I even dug the Scarlet Spider one, but was quite fond of the revision they did once Reilly was the main guy: not everyone was keen on it (or the entire event, of course). that said, i thought the House of M one was a nice kinda compromise. just awesome design, he was rocking the V-crotch thing before Bucky-cap. Batman's another classic. I personally didnt like the default black one after the Keaton movies nearly as much as the original gray-on-black, and the one i saw more often growing up: (there's better shots, i know) - but yeah, specifically, that sharp look Neal Adams had. I used to argue with Jumbie that Joe Kelly's look had the horns too tall for my liking, heh. also, i liked the Rayner revisions, but when they went back to the classic, iconic GL costume, i was happy with that as well. i should prolly post some Ed Mcguinness supes but that's plenty for now. oh, and be sure to post your least favorite too! i wonder if we'll make it to page 2 before seeing a silver iron man Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
