This weeks bad super costumes has us taking a look at the very short lived "The Flash" TV series and the Villain The Trickster.
This costume is just plain bad! and I feel bad for the actor they made wear this abomination!
That's right folks, that would be Mr. Mark Hamill playing the trickster!
Now back to the costume. Words escape me on describing this thing. It just looks like the designers took a bunch of colored patterned fabric and threw it against a wall of Velcro and used whatever stuck to it in sewing up this suit of vomit inducing vision scaring villainy! The Tricksters costume in the comic is bad but this live action version just puts that one to shame and wins "The Worst Super Costume" Award in my book!
Well that is my view on the Live Action's Trickster, what is your? Let us know below in the comments!
Well, the black goes with everything else, so I guess they got THAT right, I could say it would fit in the Thursday random contest for Carnivale, but you are right the ONLY way to fix this is with a match!
hamill should play joker in the next batman reboot.
So odd that this would be your post today. I just finished a long post on Odysseus as the Trickster figure in mythology. Serendipitous.
As brilliant as he would be and has been as the Joker, I think he might be a bit to old now. But I’d love to hear that voice on the big screen.
The FORCE is WEAK with this one! It looks like the costume desighners had scraps lying around and said “Instead of tossing these fabric pieces in the trash why not make a costume out of them and get Mark Hammel to wear it, hell noone will argue with a Jedi about his fashion sense right?” I also think he didn’t comb his hair after his last fight with Flash ’cause that’s some major wind blown hair man!
I disagree wholeheartedly. Because that’s exactly what the designers did. They took a bunch of fabric and threw it against a wall of Velcro. Clashing neon colors with black stripes and polka dots is very late 1980s/early 1990s.
His costumes are meant to confuse and confuddle. Obviously, you are so entranced and disgusted by his attire, you failed to notice the bomb that he just planted under your feet. As someone who quilts pinwheels and swatches, I think it’s great.
It’s like “Quilting with the Criminally Insane,” allowing that the criminal in question would probably have a fixation on causing seizures with that slapdash mess of patterns. Horrible.
As for the Joker, Mark Hamill had announced that he had officially retired from playing the Clown Prince of Crime after the release of the Arkham City video game. Which is too bad, I did love his portrayal of the Joker in B:TAS. So, there’s pretty much no chance of him playing the part in a live action movie.
A bit of Trivia, Mark Hamill is well know for his voice over work of the Joker in Batman the Animated Series but did you know that he also provide the voice for the Hobgoblin in the 90’s Spider-Man Cartoon?
Great idea, sadly, will never happen 🙁
So this is why he went into voice work.
Well, that and the big-handed villain named “**********”

Let’s watch the language please!
He also does comics
Hamill is the co-writer of The Black Pearl, a comic book miniseries published by Dark Horse Comics. He wrote an introduction to the Trade Paperback Batman: Riddler Two-Face which reprints various stories involving The Riddler and Two-Face to tie in with Batman Forever. He has also written several stories for Simpsons Comics, including “Catastrophe in Substitute Springfields!”, which parodies DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths and also references several other classic comics.
If I recall correctly, Mark Hamill actually pitched the Trickster to the Flash producers. They didn’t come to him. That is true dedication.
I think some of the villains’ bad costumes are their pre-emptive bid for an insanity plea.
Can you really call it a bad costume when it’s made by a crazy man? Seems rather appropriate to me.
