Didn’t he get killed by a hammer through his torso? Clearly Goliath’s powers come from his bare chest and that shouldn’t be tampered with.


#726

Who knew Vanity Fair might end up on pull lists?


#727

Hank Pym’s costume when he was the Wasp:


#728

So it was kind of like the Tyroc situation? Where the artist thought the character idea was so stupid and ill-conceived that he deliberately gave it a terrible costume?


#729

That’s actually taken straight from an old Kirby costume design.

(Ok, so it’s not, but for a brief split-second you suddenly changed your mind and thought it was brilliant, didn’t you? :slight_smile: )


#730

What the third Union Jack wore for a while in the 90’s:


#731

Inspired by Black Lightning, the first and second costumes of Anissa Pierce aka Thunder:



#732

Er… did she change skin colour as well? I don’t understand :confused:


#733

I never even noticed that. :laughing:
I honestly didn’t see past the hair colour.


#734

Correct hair colour is obviously of crucial importance when casting an acceptable actress :laughing:


#735

An Alex Ross redesign of Robin:


#736

Just seen this tweeted. Apparently it’s Captain Marvel. Honestly, it’s… NOT good:

I first saw just the upper part cropped by the tweet and I thought it was ok, then I opened the whole thing and… it just gets worse and worse the further down you look :frowning:


#737

What don’t you like about it?


#738

It looks like a cross between a motorcyclist and a cheap action figure rather than a superhero.

There’s something about the knees in particular that make her look like a poorly articulated action figure. The shoulders too, but the knees are the worse culprits.

I don’t see the need for the random patches (e.g. the thighs) and lines (e.g. the midriff). The diagonal line just under her bust looks like a zip-up pocket, which ok fair enough I’m sure that’s really useful but it’s an awkward place for a pocket if that’s what it is. And if it isn’t a pocket what it is, other than clutter?

Fingerless gloves only work for Bob Cratchitt.

I know traditional sleek superhero costumes don’t often work in real life, but this seems to go to unnecessary lengths to “busy” it up.


#739

That’s a description of 70’s Captain America.


#740

That was when he was going nuts with Kingdom Come redesigns. So much fun seeing him spew out so many ideas at the time - many that I saw only as a fuzzy photo uploaded. Big power surge of creativity!

#742

Quick random superhero question - who is the superhero who has Superman level power but only when he is drunk?


#743

Superman.


#744

“My secret is…I’m always drunk.”

Wait!!! Is Superman Irish?!? :wink:
