might say a superhero is only as good as his costume, but that doesn't
mean all costumes are all that great. Sure, Batman would be nothing
without his Bat suit, but are you really going to argue that Robin needs
to put his green scale short shorts back on?
we have thankfully stepped away from the underpants phase, some
characters would have been better off just going for the classic look.
We’re about to delve into a world of shoulder pads, bad hair, ridiculous
headgear and some dreadful accessories.
Some of these outfits may have looked great at the time of printing, but have aged horribly. Many characters received a much-needed redesign to fix the issues, but some have managed to avoid going back to the drawing board.
Then comes the heroes that have been redesigned and came out much worse than before. It's risky business changing an iconic character’s look. Yes, it pays off occasionally, like when Dick Grayson became Nightwing. But overall, it’s usually a bad idea, as we are about to see.
