"The suit doesn't make the hero" Clark Kent - Smallville. Well unfortunately most of the time it does. Today I'm going to be counting down my top 10 worst superhero costumes of all time. Buckle in. Much like me riding a rollercoaster it's going to be a relatively short ride that will make you almost thrown up numerous times.

Number 10: Green Lantern

Now what exactly makes this costume so bad? Well for starters it isn't a costume at all! You guessed it. It's 100% CGI even his freaking mask is CGI. Considering this movie had a budget of 200 million you'd think they could of just made an actual costume. Instead of paying 10 times more money to do an awful CGI version. Hopefully the (sorta) newly announced Green Lantern Corps film with have real costumes. Only 9 left folks.

Number 9: Nicolas Cage Superman Proto Suit

"This is why Superman works alone" George Clooney - Batman and Robin. No I think this is why Superman works alone. Now for starters I know that this isn't the final suit and is just the concept art. But still it just looks awful. Even the hair looks bad. The suit just looks like it was made of glossy plastic and the S looks like taped on paper. I mean yeah it was the 90s and superhero costumes weren't the best. But this is just as bad as George Clooney's "Batsuit" which reminds me...

Number 8: Batgirl

While Batman and Robin had exceptionally bad costumes this one just stands out as bad to me. I mean just look at it. The mask looks off and the version with the cowl is just flat out satanic. The only plus to the suit you ask? Batnips...

Number 7: Icicle

Now I know Smallville didn't have the biggest budget out there but really? Here's the Icicle from the comics

Now Smallvilles costumes weren't the best either but at least they had some level of creativity in them. This is just flat out lazy. They could of made some special ice molds or something but instead they just painted his face and hair blue and gave him a hoodie. How shameful...

Number 6: The Fantastic Four

Well considering it's miniscule budget of 1 million dollars I didn't expect too much when I heard about how bad these costumes were. But when I saw them somehow my expectations that were already exremely low weren't even somewhat met. It seems that the Fantastic Four is cursed to have bad movies and costumes. Just look at the thing. I mean what even is that?

Number 5: Steel

This lackluster movie was a desperate attempt by whoever the hell wrote it to jump aboard the already dying off superhero movie trend. One of the movies lesser things besides the acting and story (That's really saying alot) is the costume. I mean for crying out loud it's not even made of steel! This is basically the homeless man's Iron Man. I wouldn't even be surprised if the suit was just made out of cardboard or foam.

Number 4: The Justice League

Where do I even start? The show was basically a low budget sitcom that included the Atom, Fire, The Flash, Guy Gardner, Martian Manhunter and Ice. Thank god it was never made into a series mainly because of the hilariously bad costumes. They all appear to be spandex which is not a good thing. They all just look like cheap halloween costumes that were never released because of how bad they were. I mean just look at the Flash and tell me you didn't lose some faith in humanity.

Number 3 Catwoman

I don't even think I need to explain why this costume sucks so hard...

Number 2 Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman Failed NBC Pilot 2011

This is just... Just wow. I mean this really looks like it was bought from a costume store. I mean what type of Amazonian armor is this? I've Even the gauntlets are clearly plastic. At least the pants look like spandex which really shouldn't be a plus. I've heard that the Wonder Woman porno has a better costume then this one. I may not like the casting choice for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

Number 1: Harley Quinn


Harley Quinn Birds of Prey  2002/03

Out of all the costumes on this list at least they had some bit of effort put into them no matter how miniscule it was. This took no effort at all. I mean come on. Hell Arrow had a better Harley Quinn costume and she was only in an episode for 20 seconds! Even the white printed onto the shirt looks cheap and faded. Let's just be glad this now is long forgotten and didn't make it past season 1. Or else this might of been what Suicide Squad Harley would've looked like and that would be horrific. Even Icicle's "costume" is better. If they would of put her in a red and black jacket with some white face paint. It actually could of looked pretty cool but instead it's just a plain crappily printed red shirt.

Well that's all folks! Be sure to follow me if you enjoyed reading and check out my youtube channel for more awesome stuff!
