Superhero design discussion thread


#705

Not really feeling any of those. They all feel like swimsuits.


#706



#707

At the same time, the costume looks “gay.”

But the unspoken sexual elements of superheroes is essential to their genesis. Superhero costumes should be kinky.


#708

Who was it, Tyroc of the LSH? Somebody got mad and designed him “the worst costume ever”?


#709

It was Mike Grell, so outraged at the inherently racist concept behind Tyroc that he gave him a deliberately bad costume. Which probably made the problem worse. I’m not sure if he was actually hoping the character would be dropped completely once they saw the art.


#710

Yes! (Been having a bit of the geezer problem of pulling up proper names. There’s a pill for that, but I keep forgetting to take it.)


#711

At least he never wore a bustier:

“I’m just a sweet transvestite…”


#712

just threw up in my mouth a little.

no pink superheroes!


#713

I bought the Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes HC and came across that costume for the first time. Part of me thinks that it hugely impractical and then there is another part of me that realizes that Emma Frost and countless female heroes have had costumes like that for years and I feel deeply ashamed of myself :worried:

Blink’s new costume:

When an Emma Frost costume looks practical in comparison…


#715

That is fucking awful and has put me off bothering to pick up that arc of Cable (purely for Blink).


#716

The comments were a bit lost on me because I had no idea which one Blink was, and couldn’t see a problem.

Then it dawned on me that the woman with the black-and-purple costume actually has purple skin :roll_eyes:


#717

It does look a bit Tarot-ish. It’s also weird that it’s not the same costume she’s wearing or even the same haircut on the cover of issue #150 and no one else has changed.


#718

Doop’s lost a lot of weight.


#719

He’s been working out and watching what he eats. He just didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to make a big thing of it.

Supergirl Costume update by Jamal Igle [ Supergirl ]
Supergirl costume concepts 1

When i first got on the book almost two years ago I pitched this as an updating of the costume. it was considered for a while and was almost going to happen but ultimately decided against.

#722

Perhaps one of the most ridiculous costumes any superhero could have, never mind a Black one:


#723

It’s the bare midriff. Needs much more bling. And, of course, every super-big-guy wants to occlude their peripheral vision with a useless cowl thingie.


#724

His next costume wouldn’t be much of an improvement:

Of course, he did get a decent costume before Mark decided to kill him off:
