I like to talk about movies.

So, I'd just like to get this out as soon as possible: This is a personal opinion... obviously. So yes, this list may be pitiful in your eyes. But face it. You have to agree with the majority of these.

This was a hard list to order properly, since some costumes sucked just as bad as other costumes. Bare with me.

Anyways, here's a fun list! When you are done reading, tell me what you think in the comments below!

25. Bane - The Dark Knight Rises

So, obviously this was a hard choice to put on the list because Bane was an awesome villain. But I felt his costume had something wrong with it. Maybe it was just the fact that I really wanted a Riddler (done right, of course) to appear in The Dark Knight Rises and not Bane. I was furious when I found out Bane was going to appear in the film, because I thought he was stupid. (No, I literally mean I thought he was stupid.) But apparently I need to study my Batman more because this mastermind was almost as brilliant as the Joker was in The Dark Knight.

To get to the point already, I don't find the outfit appealing. Of course, I thought it was A MILLION times better than Bane's was in Batman & Robin...

This almost didn't make the list, but somehow it did. Oh well.

24. Juggernaut - X-Men: The Last Stand

"Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, b*tch!"

No, I didn't know because your outfit blew, dude. The comic book costume for the Juggernaut actually was awesome and I think it would have worked well on film. But in X-Men: The Last Stand... I shuttered...

I'll pass!

23. Spider-Man - The Amazing Spider-Man

Nice try at a change, but the costume Spidey dawns in The Amazing Spider-Man looks more stupid than it should have been. It looks absolutely odd in my eyes. Maybe you feel the same?

The eyes for some reason are awkward in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of how they colored it either. Obviously, red and blue is what you need but can you at least make the colors placed so that it resembles the kick-ass costume we've all learned to love on Peter Parker?

At least the Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a great costume. Too bad that movie was horrible...

22. Deadpool - X-Men Origins: Wolverine

The only problem I have with this costume is that it isn't much of a costume... also it took me a year to realize this was even Wade Wilson. But that's probably my fault for not paying attention. Anyways, I must point out that the lack of a mouth may prove a problem for his ability to speak. Just saying.

When someone asks me about how I felt about Deadpool's outfit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine I tell them, "Deadpool was in that movie?"


21. Poison Ivy - "Batman & Robin"

By gawd that's awful! As you can see, Uma Thurman tried her best to make the outfit she had to wear in her portrayal of Poison Ivy in Batman & Robin but it just didn't work out. Also it looks like she has two reproductive organs sticking out from the top of her head. The brows are weird and I just can't. I can't.

One word: Awful.

20. Cobra Commander - GI Joe: Rise of Cobra

As you can see in this toy version of the Cobra Commander as he appears in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra, the makers of the film failed in having the character resemble the Cobra Commander that appeared in anything else GI Joe.

Hell, I understand he doesn't dawn this outfit and the name until the very end of the film but if he gets imprisoned while he is wearing this outfit, then how does he acquire the actual Cobra Commander armor/outfit that he wore in Retaliation?

Answering that question doesn't change the fact that this outfit is weird looking.

19. Mystique - X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class, X-Men Days: of Futures Past

So basically, we have a naked blue girl in all of the X-Men films that she has appeared in.

Strangely, even though I understand the practicality of the fact she has to be in the buff to effectively disguise herself as someone else... but I feel they made this her outfit because it was sexually appealing... but that's just strange. I think the white tog she wears in the comics would have a better choice. Not bad, but definitely not good.

Also why does her hair look like she's wearing ten pounds of hair gel?

18. New Goblin - Spider-Man 3

Low quality pic, but who cares!

Anywho, I don't understand why Sony felt it was a good idea to create a villain rather than just introduce the Hobgoblin in Spider-Man 3. (Although, it would create a problem since the Hobgoblin is mostly identified as Roderick Kingsley)

In Spider-Man 3, we got a flying snowboarder as a villain.

For some reason, this suit is better than the Green Goblin's suit in Spider-Man. Just ignore the fact that I listed it that way because honestly they should have tied on this list. However, I don't do ties so....

17. Doctor Doom - Fantastic Four

Not only did the Fantastic Four fail to amuse me, but it also made Doctor Doom look like an idiot. And by idiot I mean his outfit had so much potential but they WASTED IT.

The mask is spot on, but the rest of it looks like a cheesy tailor was hired by ol' Vic for his criminal activities.

Oh well, at least we all know Doctor Doom would be awesome looking in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if FOX would stop being greedy and come up with their own ideas rather than make films based off another studio's origin material.

Doomful. Doomful. DOOMFUL!

16. Rhino - The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Now this is just wrong. Can't you just take the ol' Abomination route from the Incredible Hulk and bring us an actual visually appealing version of the Rhino that we see in the comics?

The Rhino's exoskeleton in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just one of the many reasons this film wasn't particularly good.

15. Lizard - The Amazing Spider-Man

Look me in the eyes and tell me that doesn't scream disappointment. Where the hell is his lab coat? Oh yeah, still floating around in the whole minute the Lizard wore it for in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Honestly the biggest issue is his face. Give him a freaking longer snout like he had as established in the comics. I don't mean crocodile length... it's just the flatness of his face is horrible looking!

The little things, Sony, the little things!

14. Green Goblin - "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"

I was absolutely pumped to see the return of the Green Goblin when the Amazing Spider-Man 2 was in production. When I saw how he looked in it, I threw up in my mouth a little.

Not only did it waste another chance to do the Goblin justice on screen (even with a fresh face behind the villainous ego, now Harry instead of his father Norman) but it was also another reason we may have to wait a few films before we see the Green Goblin again!

Shame on you, Sony! What even is this?! A meth head in his busted Halo cosplay costume?

13. Bullseye - Daredevil

I think the picture says enough.

12. Green Goblin - Spider-Man

Although it isn't that bad of a costume, it was probably a reason Spider-Man wasn't the film it should have been. And that's saying something, because that 2002 film was damn good!

It just doesn't fit the Green Goblin type and maybe that's why it wasn't that good of an outfit. Let me know what you think!

11. The Mask - The Mask

I know what you're thinking, give me a break! This film is a mid-90s film!

Well, painting someone's face green doesn't make it look like a "mask". So... that's why the outfit isn't good in my opinion.

They clearly could have done a tad bit more with the outfit/costume.

10. Two-Face - Batman Forever

What in the Sam Hill?! This outfit is so bad... and Two-Face in The Dark Knight was so good!

What's up with all the animal skins on his burnt side? WHY DOES HE HAVE HAIR ON THAT SIDE? In film, it'd be more practical to NOT HAVE hair where his face was seared. Uhhh, a little bit dumb to stick to the comics there?

Thank you Mr. Nolan for giving us the Harvey Dent we all deserve in the 2008 masterpiece. And shame on this version!

9. Bane - Batman & Robin

Steroids and purple veins, baby! (I'm laughing at the idiotic design of this costume...)

At least the spikes around his waist were somewhat cool looking. And what the hell is around his head? Did he have a brain blast like Jimmy Neutron has?

8. Green Lantern - Green Lantern

Although it does look like it is a result of something E.T.... it just looks like it is begging to be made a joke of.

Hopefully the next Green Lantern appearance in film will not take the same route for the costume this film did.

7. Captain America - Captain America II: Death Too Soon


6. Catwoman - Catwoman

So, is this Catwoman or a stripper in role-play?

5. Mr. Freeze - Batman & Robin

Brace yourself for the horrible costumes of Batman & Robin.

4. Robin - Batman & Robin

He's the dingaling in the middle with the nipples.


3. Batgirl - Batman & Robin

She's the girl, obviously.


2. Batman - Batman & Robin

It's George Clooney.


1. The Riddler - Batman Forever

Alright, you knew this was coming. But I don't have the time to roast this outfit so tell me what you think in the comments below.

Excuse me, I gotta go check my wardrobe and make sure I don't ever look as bad as some of these characters...
