The Teen X-Men Can’t Seem To Settle On What To Wear
Superhero costumes are pretty iconic. When you see Superman, you definitely know that’s Superman. They’re a time-honored part of the whole superhero party. The X-Men, especially, have some really iconic costumes. Cyclops, Wolverine, Beast, Gambit, Jubilee, Psylocke, Colossus; no matter who you’re talking about, these heroes wear some very iconic threads.
So what’s the deal with the time-displaced All-New X-Men? It seems that every time Marvel relaunches their comic they give these guys a new set of uniforms. I realize they’re teenagers, and the X-Men do change costumes a bunch, but four different sets of uniforms in only four years?
I don’t really have much of a point to make. Just an observation. Personally, I’ve grown pretty tired of these characters. Their series was pretty good when they first appeared back in 2012, but I just don’t care anymore. There are more than enough present day X-Men who deserve to be explored. I have no idea why Marvel is sticking with this group — unless it’s still part of their screw-FOX plan. The ultimate middle finger to those movie-making bastards. Why tell compelling X-Men stories with the incredible cast available when you can just keep telling mediocre stories starring the most boring X-Men cast possible?
And they won’t stand a chance at becoming iconic if Marvel just keeps throwing them into seemingly random costumes.
