Should Maxine change her costume?

Yes she should change it... to something similar to her Kingdome Come version jojojo

I'm  for her going "red" since she should be "Red Tornado".  And a cloak instead of the hat.

I think that a combination of her current costume and the Kingdom Come version would be a interesting idea.

 I just finished "Wicked".  I have no idea where she pulled the costume idea.  The red & white stockings come from the "Wizard of Oz " movie -- as for the rest...?

I love her costume! (: 
it's fun, fresh and cool. I'd wear it if I was a crimefighter.

I like her costume as well, it makes her look "unique."

But you have to admit -- skirts & dresses are not very practical....

If they give her a new updated costume for the New 52, then I will be so pissed...

It looks christmas-y.

Give her a new costume? No.

But if they created an alternate version of her character that is different enough to warrant a different take on the costume, then fine. I guess.

However, changing the costume is not going to suddenly propel her to WW level of fame. In face, probly the opposite. I've always felt part of the reason why Batman, Supes, & WW are at the top is because they have always had the same costume AND been the same person in the costume. With Flash, GL, etc, all that changing just did more harm than good. No person in the suit is more well known, in fact it just makes the non-fans not want to get involved because you dont know who is who. Thats why all those golden age legacy members of the JSA are so unknown. Which Hourman is being used? The father, son, or the android? If you have multiple versions, that each have a small fanbase, all you've done is divided & fractured the fanbase, & caused confusion for the non-fans.

It reminds me more of a Mystery Man or girl costume than a superhero type. I'd honestly like to see her in a Batman type solo take, were she decides to fight crime in the alleys by striking fear in the superstitous criminals by dressing up as a witch, in a dark & gritty Noir setting, but she just looks all cute & its just redicous.

But, as for a new costume, she is not showing enough skin & boobs. So yeah, maybe its needed.

But, Cyclone needs to stay as Maxine, & stay in one costume. & her costume is unique, it should not be turned into a generic costume like Mockingbird in Marvel, or a sexy costume like Power/Supergirl in DC. Eventually age her, & put her in the JL.
