While not new, I would like for Wolverine to have his x-force costume to be his main costume.

Jubilee.

Jubilee can could use one and kitty could upgrade from the classic black/yellow.

Rogue

@Lightburst: when I was a teenager, around the time Kitty returned to the X-men in the late 90's, I drew her in her X-men uniform but with the light blue of her late 80's costume in place of all the yellow. Now that I think about it, it's a little like how they ended up designing her for the X-men Evolution cartoon a few years later, but trust me when I say, it actually looked pretty good when I did it.

Rogue

Ughhhhhh. Yes.

They need to go back to the hooded costume from the Bachalo/Carey days. That was perfect.

Kitty Pryde. Any other answer is wrong.

Wolverine.

Remove the "X" and put an "A"...

This. This. This. This. This.

That Black'n'Yellow look isn't even a laughing matter at this stage in her life. She looked like nostalgic overkill on that Coipel cover for X-Men, either the costume goes or she does altogether.

No longer are you an X-Baby, Chicago Gurl Pryde.

@AgeofHurricane: @Rickbarry: I dunno, I think the modified uniform sort of suits her. If she's in charge of the school, she's sort of the face of the X-men in one way. It's also for this reason that I like that Wolverine's costume has evolved into a sort of modified uniform.

And she's traditionally been the point of view character, sort of the X-men's everyman, so, in that way, a more generic look fits. She also doesn't go by a super hero name any more, so why have a super hero costume?

I liked her classic blue and blue outfit in it's time, because it seemed to marry her ballet background with her ninja training, and that it seemed to reference Wolverine's monochromatic style, but I'd really hate for her to have that outfit now. Again, it just seems too super hero-y, too much a part of her childhood, not enough where she's at now.

1. Hope

2. Jubilee

3. Cyclops (bring back his visor look!)

#15 Posted by AgeofHurricane (7261 posts) - - Show Bio

@dangallant984: Yeah, well, considering she's been revoked of Headmistress status in ANXM's most recent issue and has now been relegated to being the O5's personal Nanny, it's all the more mandated. That, and the fact that she was indulging in the ultimate intimacy with some alien bullet for a couple years also detracts. I'm not saying she should go back to anything, i'm just saying she needs a redux. A good one, all the other leading X-Ladies are getting one, why shouldn't she ?

Change is good. Even Dazzler's doing better than her.

i agree, not only do i think she needs a new costume i feel she needs a new additude as well, i liked the AOA vrsion of her a little better!

Ultimate Kitty Pryde is a real HBIC.

She's already got Ultimate Jean Grey-Summers trembling in her boots.

Remember, Brian Wood wrote that. I'd trust him to bring some new flavor to Kitty.

I agree with Kitty Pryde and Rogue needing new costumes. I like Ultimate Kitty's outfit btw.

@AgeofHurricane: oh, I wouldn't be opposed to Kitty getting a new outfit, if it was good, I just don't have a problem with the one she has. I think every other update she's had has looked pretty bad.

The all-white Ultimate outfit has been by far the best, and I do think that something in that direction would probably be the way to go. I just think that for where the 616 Kitty's at, if she's going to go with something that minimalist, why not just have a modified school uniform?

I think it was acceptable back then, but I think there are modern artists who are much, much better.

I mean, his work on the old Batman titles and Superman is iconic, but I personally don't like his art.

@John Valentine: yeah, I can see what you mean. I definitely admire him for his story telling, but, sort of like John Byrne, his surface style stopped interesting me years ago.

I was going to say this but he's not an X-Man

I think they should make a team that's an amalgamation of Gen X/New Mutants/Young X-Men and revamp there costumes so they are similar to the Alex Ross redesigns

If he was an X-man, I'd say he should get an update; but for the Avengers, especially the team he's on, I like how superhero-y this costume is.

And I don't hate that idea for a next gen team..

Yea I think that's why they went with that costume, it looks less "X-Men" and more "superhero" but Adams art does it no favories at all and I thinkthey should just makes the thinks on his head stripes and not sticky outy.

Yea I think some over looked characters on a team would be good, Chamber, Jubilee, Husk, Blink, Prodgy, Hellion, X-Man ect

I'm okay with Havok's 80's look, but I hate the Uncanny Avengers look. And yes there is a difference.

Yep. Absolute Horror.

@Jonny_Anonymous: I think Adams is just drawing it like he did in the 60's, maybe he missed a memo.

@knighthood: totally forgot he still had that look in the 80's, I guess I usually blank out on the replacement era. But I kinda like it both ways. Except the belt that doesn't close, those things always bug me.

I would like to see them phase out the standard basic X-Men uniforms. Kitty Pryde, Dani Moonstar, Pixie, and Karma needs their own look. They finally got Magik out of that old New Mutant uniform, and she looks great...

Jubilee and Hope are my favorite that I have heard so far...

Besides that how bout Magneto... I mean he has supposedly switched sides but he kept the same costume? or how bout Psylocke I feel like she has been wearing that same outfit forever...

#42 Edited by Yung ANcient One (4601 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree with judasnixon. They need to get out the "rookie x-men" look. For me specifically Moonstart, and Pryde. Only problem is I can't think of one for Pryde. She's not really superheroish for me. Also Rouge needs to go back to her previous look. I would love for Sunfire to get a new look as well{I love his AoA look.}

Cyclops needs to lose his "Now"  X helm 
 
Rogue needs to go back one costume 
 
Havok needs to go back one costume 
 
Colossus needs to keep pants no matter what 
 
Kitty needs an update someway somehow. 
 
Magneto needs to lose the underwear on the outside.  I hope the "Now" look does this well. 
 
Northstar needs an update. 
 
Quentin Quire needs some type of costume/uniform.

Saving Wolverines life from an angry horde of alien gangsters in a casino aboard a space station  seems pretty out in the field to me.  So does battling alongside Captain America  in an assault on an underground A.I.M facility.

I don't understand why people are hating on Kitty's old school look. QQ's punkish edge would be lost the second he dons a uniform.

i want to say pixie, but with that pink hair it could all just go so terribly wrong. Im thinking kitty pryde in the 80's wrong.

and maybe get hope out of that armegeddon/starwars style thing she's got going on. It was kind of cool, i just think it could be changed for the better and she could lose that shawl.

Ok, let me rephrase that: Thigh high boots on a guy is weird and underwear worn alone or, on the outside of the costume were always lame.

Thankfully, Superman does not have the underwear on the outside costume anymore.

@CerealKiller: Yeah why is Hope still wearing that dirty, smelly, raggedy, old cloak anyways? What no one can buy the Mutant Massiah a jacket? Jesus Christ Cable take the girl to JCpenny's and buy her something! There is no reason why Hope should still be running around in a potato sack. She looks homeless!
