Ok, I've calmed down and am feeling better now...

Go take a look at this over at Something Aweful. Worst superhero costumes ever with somew veruy funny commentary. I actually remember some of the 'superheroes' that they are showing here and indeed, it proves that there was a huge creative void in comics for years.

"Creative void?!?" Dude! Dazzler's classic 80's! Sure, her title was essentially a True Romance comic, with mutants. And yeah, the character went downhill when they wrote her into the X-Men (*talk* about crappy costumes! --Dazzler's, when she joined X-Men, I mean, not the 80's X-Men [you know I'd never dis' Phoenix!]).

As for Oracle, member of the Shiar Imperial Guard,again, classic 80's costume ala Dave Cockrum. Incidentally, Cockrum designed the Imperial Guard to be a Marvel-ish version of DC's Legion of Superheroes.

(takes geek hat off now.)
