I missed “Bad Costume Wednesday” yesterday, my apologies. Luckily the “X-Men” were on the job and managed to not only identify a bad costume for us, but to put the perp in chains as befits this violation of the fashion code:
The fact that they ruined the costume of one of the all-time great villains particularly galls me. Magneto is a bad-ass, but they turned him into a “good guy” by making him leader of the X-Men, and then slapped this Broadway-escapee bondage getup on him. Purple’s a very risky color for anyone to wear, but particularly for villains who stake their reputations on being stone-cold killers. When you add in the super long gloves — also purple — and the silly pink “M” on his chest, it’s just embarrassing.
