Brightly colored extravagant costumes are a common part of superhero
comics, and villains in particular are given a lot of room to play around
when it comes to their look.
A suit made of question marks? Yes, very
on-brand for the Riddler. Tights and a leotard? Of course, that's a classic look
that never goes out of style. Wandering around fully naked? You do you
movie Mystique, who needs clothing when you have awesome shape-shifting powers.
Despite all the leeway given on what constitutes "practical" for a super villain's design, it's
probably not surprising that there are still a lot of looks that flat
out fail. B-list villains are particularly guilty of trying to find a
brand for themselves and losing sight of the bigger picture.
Sometimes their costumes don't make sense for their backstory.
Sometimes their outfits are fitting for their character, but give no
protection in a battle. Worst of all though, is when their design becomes a
hindrance, and starts getting in the way of their ability to commit crimes.
