Many Superheroes are introduced in various comics over time. Every superhero has a somewhat unique costume. But, some costumes are so over the top and right in our faces that we cannot forget it. Spandex bodysuits may not be the most comfortable outfits in the world. But there are worse options than your basic spandex getups when it comes to uncomfortable superhero costumes. Here are the few most uncomfortable comic book costumes ranked.
1. As a result of the Civil War, Baldwin went by the name Penance instead of Speedball for a few years and felt extremely guilty about the innocent lives lost. Civil War, a 2006 Marvel Comics crossover event, began with 612 civilian casualties, and he was partially to blame. Baldwin’s guilt over being a part of such a tragedy took a toll. His suit had 612 internal spikes, which kept him him in constant pain.
2. Eventually, Radioactive Man had to wear a Hazmat Suit at all times. Lu wore a hazardous material suit after joining the Thunderbolts at all times to protect those around him.
3. The design of Iron Man’s first suit was not comfortable. The suit appeared to be an enormous grey mass of metal. It resembles an iron lung more than an Iron Man.
4. Blue Devil’s costume was attached to his skin permanently. So it’s no longer a suit; it’s him.
5. Bloc appeared in one issue of Marvel Comics. By the end of the issue, he’s dead. There’s no way a metal mouth guard could possibly be comfortable. He must have had a difficult time breathing.
6. Superman’s outfit, in Future State, was not comfortable. It’s not easy for Clark Kent in Future State: Superman: Worlds of War. Mongul captured Superman, and so he fought in an alien arena in the comic.
7. Web of Spider-Man #100’s silver Spidey suit has become a bit of a Marvel Comics legend. We know Spider-Man is a tough guy, but we can’t imagine him wearing a suit of armor being so uncomfortable.
8. It was known as the “attitude era” of comic books in the 1990s. Nearly every character had an outrageous costume. In the Knightfall storyline, Jean-Paul Valley, aka Azrael, was Batman’s replacement. A prime example of outrageous costume design was his costume before he took on the Bat’s mantle.
9. Starfire’s costumes have always been pretty revealing. She was dressed more like a lady in a gentleman’s club than a superhero in Red Hood and the Outlaws. Some female characters are dressed in a titillating way in comic books, but this was just plain absurd!
10. In 1940, Hawkman first appeared in Flash Comics #1, making him one of DC Comics’ oldest heroes. Over the past 80 years, his costumes have become iconic. It’s just that under that harness, he should be wearing a shirt! There’s something about metal on skin that doesn’t seem right.
These costumes scream uncomfortable. Which costume do you think is the most uncomfortable?
