#1 Posted by azmoday (151 posts) - - Show Bio

hey guys, 
 
cable has prob seen more costume changes than any othe character over the years !  But in his early days, he wore lots of armor .. huge shoulder guards.. lotsa pouches and weaponry!   
 
now i hear some people make fun of it, some people like it.  just wondering, are you a fan of his original look ? why or why not !?

I never liked the original costume, but it can be forgiven because it was a product of the horrible horrible designs of the 80s/90s.

like it. but only for nostalgia reasons, and it changed because it was no longer
what worked. out of his entire wardrobe there are many i place above that one,
but seeing it gives me the same type of feeling as seeing a Ditko Spider-Man
or an old record.

thanks for the insight guys...  hey Catmanexe, i totally agree with you, its the nostalgia of his costume that appeals to me.
 
What is it about it that you guys dont like ? too over done ? just looks weird? 
 
and if you guys have costumes of him that you prefer please post em! thanks.

This is Cable to me. The other costumes aren't as bad azz to me for some reason.

Yes! I love the classic Cable look, mostly for nostalgia reasons myself. But that was the cable I grew up with. It's weird I was just looking at my old comics, and I reread the first  appearance  of cable. Anyways Cable is badass no matter what hes wearing. His series right now is one of my favorite titles going on right now.

good to see some people like his old costume! do you guys think he could still rock that gear today and it would be well recieved?

@azmoday: lol.not me. thats the thing is he needed to evolve. they all did. it was cool then, but you had to look at what people were wearing then too, and the kind of costumes even action and sci-fi characters wore in movies then. it just doesnt work now.
but he's had many great costumes if you ask me anyways. i can stack up his costumes to a lot of the other x-characters and he comes
out very ahead over the ages.

Just realized that the Gears of War characters have that same sort of art style. Big and bulky with lots of armor. I think that was the thing to do for the 90's although I would love to see a sort of update on that type of armor and what it would look like now.

hey BingBangboom, 
 
I agree the Gears of War characters have big bulky armor aswell .. and they're look is working for them in 2010 ! i think cable's old costume could use some adjustments and still work today!

I like the old ones it makes him seem like more of a warrior, it seems like they downplay that a lot these days.
