Today I am outsourcing “Bad Super Costume Wednesday” to our friends at UGO. Specifically, for this guy:
K. Thor Jensen’s writeup pretty much says it all:
Adam X The X-Treme may be the most 90s superhero ever. His name even has “Extreme” in it, for God’s sake. Check it off the list: backwards baseball cap? Goatee? Mullet? Mullet and what I guess are supposed to be dreadlocks but look more like pigtails? Spikes and sharp things everywhere? This guy probably got his powers from taking a bath in radioactive Mountain Dew.
Aside from pouches and the singular achievement of killing off comics for a decade, I think the greatest Image legacy is making pigtails on super-heroes normal. That’s just so sweet.
