I was going to continue on the the mid-80s frenzy that I was in, visiting the dawn of the West Coast Avengers, but in looking at the series, I wanted to hit where the series had its greatest impact. The mini-series was not that point, and in the series itself, the high points seemed to coincide with John Byrne's run on the title. Those also tended to run with multi-issue stories, with a couple notable exceptions, and one of those is the introduction of some of the silliest heroes of the 1980s, the Great Lakes Avengers. They keep coming back and at one point in their evolution boasted among their members, Squirrel Girl. This is before everyone's favorite nut-eating, butt-kicking hero was invented, and features some heroes that if not silly, definitely were interesting, to say the least. So with the intro now long enough to wrap past the Reviews of Old Comics logo, let's get started.

Some people like them, but there is not a single one that everyone can come to a consensus is a good costume. Well, everyone has already dissected these costumes so we decided to instead of jumping on the bandwagon and trashing these new looks, we'd look at some of the all-time worst costumes in comics. These are not in order, and are limited to one per character. Coincidentally, these are also only Marvel and DC, just because more history means more chances to have an embarrassing costume. They are also limited to costumes that stuck around for a little bit, which keeps a lot of Silver Age Batman costumes off the list.
