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.

  1. I hate the suits they have right now. I liked best the ones they had before these. The new ones will be better than these current ones. I had hopes that this new launch would make me love the X-Men again but now that hope is lessening. Did you see Jean’s new name, Prestige? Ugg. Currently the only Marvel I buy is Extraordinary X-Men and All-New X-Men but ONLY if they PROMINENTLY include the Icemen in their story.

    • Actually I believe Rachel Grey is going to become Prestige. Definitely kind of a dumb name. And I love Iceman too, but not even his prominent inclusion got me interested in what the X-Men are doing these days.
