Key, hole, do the math

All I'm saying is, if you're going to fashion a costume that turns your head and its associated mouth into a ginormous key-hole, you better damn sure pray you don't ever meet the Keymaster:


"Hey, put that thing down ... no, seriously, that doesn't go in there, that's not a UUUURRRKRKKK!"

Bad, bad, bad choice there Mr. Key.

    At least Kingdom Hearts’ main character Sora has the common sense NOT to go in that kind of fashion direct above character is veering to.

    The hat is slightly pushing it over the edge. I mean, I know DC doesn’t exactly have the best ideas when it comes to villans (example, Blue Snowman and Doctor Spectro) but they dont make you think that you’re about to get probed by a man wearing the worlds worst toupee.

    Honestly, thank god Grant Morrison took this guy and made him a bigger threat in his JLA run. Dunno if his creepy new look was a step up from his old look or not. ^^;

    While The Key is probably one of the worst dressed and worst named villain, and sure… we could all poke fun of his super groovy metal comb-over, but time and tide shaped him into a cadaverous looking chemical freak of science that somehow has been able to take out some of the greatest DC super heroes of all time. Check it out…

    Props to those involved in The Key’s revamp.
    But day-um! Wotta losy outfit!

    well after the GLC, Batman and friends, Superman and friends, and the other founding members of the Justice League, there just wasn’t enough cool costumes to go around. Question looks like No Face from the old Dick Tracy strips, and then they actually decided to look around the office for sketch ideas to whip up new characters. Key was lame before and then took on an evolutionary change that turned him into a cadaverous freak what sprays his enemies/victims with psychotropic chemicals. He went from the dork of the class to the undesirable drug pusher. Kudos!

    The new Key was a GREAT improvement over the one featured in the Bad costumes article. but one thing I really wish DC did was totally revamp Knodar according to what I believe he should be–a 25th century assassin and criminal. That heromachine image I made and posted on Knodar’s bad costume post show what I envision would work better, and last longer through prints of the comics.

    This garbage is on the same level as that of Fire Jade. Idiotic headpiece, drab costume, and this time the art just puts me to sleep.
