Adam Orion

Today's "Bad Super Costumes" entry comes to us via "Steve Does Comics", and features Legion of Super-Heroes villain "Adam Orion":

I suppose he could remind Bouncing Boy of Otto Orion. Or maybe its because he resembles the filthy love spawn of Harley Quinn and Kraven the Hunter. By way of Nick Fury. Seriously, I'm trying to imagine a scenario where pink pig tails and an eye patch are a good combination, but I'm drawing a blank.

But perhaps I'm being unfair. Maybe when push comes to shove, Adam Orion is a certified, card-carrying member of the Bad-Ass Club. Let's see him in context to give him a fair shake:

I believe I speak for all of HeroMachine Nation when I say, for the love of all that's holy do NOT show me what happens as soon as those gravatar boots are strapped on. I don't want to see the results of a pig-tail-sporting, zebra-print go-go boots and leopard print bustier wearing hunter (hunter! as in camouflaged!) whose big weapon is neon pink finally getting to interact with the flesh and blood model on whom his Real Doll was built. I really, really don't.

Look, if you're a pink-weapon-toting, pig-tailed and eye-patched man running around in animal-skin corsets, I think it's probably time to reevaluate your priorities, particularly when your arch rival is Bouncing Boy. Bouncing Boy. A guy whose powers are indistinguishable from a beach ball. Imagine Bouncing Boy is at a baseball game, and someone picks him up and starts throwing him around, batting his blue-clad butt around the stadium until he ultimately lands on the field and has to be hustled off by an embarrassed groundskeeper.

That's your prey.

Maybe horrible fashion sense isn't this guy's worst problem after all.
