I really love All New X-Men but I really hate their costumes.

Anyone else think they should have the X-Men First Class outfits? I mean why bother redesigning their look if you're not going to use it.

I loved the First class looks, I'd be really keen for them to stick with them if possible.

I don't mind them, but I'm sure I recall Bendis saying both they and Kitty would get new costumes?

They did use it, in First Class.

Anyway, I'm probably biased because I think their original uniforms are perfect.

Also, I never really cared for their First Class outfits. They seem out of place in the era they're supposed to be from; it's like they're too modern or overly stylized considering that there were almost no other superheroes when they started. Maybe if the "O5" in All-new X-men wore them, it might make a little more sense, but I still just don't think they look all that good.

I know that but considering they redesigned their costumes it seems silly to me that they wouldn't use them a few months later.

Kitty should dress like she does in Ultimate comics.

so keen to see the new outfits :D kitty's especially. She NEEDS an update, shes practically using a student costume when she's a teacher now!

do you think theyll all still have matching ones, or unique ones? or a mix of both? like theyll be differant from eachother but with the same black and yellow colour scheme.

Their big goofy boots and gloves :P Nearly all Marvel heroes wear tight fitting outfits or semi civilian clothes now with Cap being the exception because being old fashion is kinda the point for him. Angel stood out like a sore thumb in the most recent Uncanny X-Men.

Did it have anything to do with the 50th anniversary? It would make sense to wait for that to unveil new, lasting changes (in my opinion).

I agree, the costumes don't work in this modern context. I was pumped to get the new uniforms in issue 10, but they decided to wait for the upcoming anniversary. I won't be reading the book long enough to see how those costumes will look.

alright, first those awful First Class outfits, and now this? What do you have against belts, Teerack?

Is there some problem with preserving the illusion that they could ever go to the bathroom, or what?

Out of curiosity, shouldn't the O5 look outdated? Doesn't their anachronistic appearance make sense, considering they themselves are anachronisms? I mean, isn't saying that people from the past look "outdated" kind of a truism?

@oldnightcrawler: the only thing more ironic is that the book filled with the old versions of old characters is called "All-New." It's uncanny. Meanwhile Uncanny X-Men features a handful of all-new characters..

haha, yeah. The only thing I can think is that, at some point the "O5" will return to their timeline and the book will go on to be either

A.) actually about the newer characters at the school, or

B.) a sort of reboot of the "O5" back in their own timeline, now that they have knowledge of this future (creating a new, alternate version). It's been said that Xavier will just mind-wipe them as soon as they return, but even if that is the case, even Xavier having knowledge of our timeline is bound to change things.

@oldnightcrawler: Spider-Man doesn't have a belt and his suit look like one piece but it's a shirt and pants. This could be the same. Honestly I just think the nearly all black color scheme is cool. I never liked yellow wolverine, and if marvel won't make him brown again then this is as good as it's gonna get.

And Super heroes are like girls! We don't talk about them going to the bathroom >:[

Spiderman's outfit actually has a utility belt (with his Spider-spotlight, camera, film, and web cartridges), but it's under his shirt.

I do agree that Wolverine's classic brown costume was infinitely better than his classic yellow, but I still prefer his current one for the simple reason that it does away with the outside underpants (and those ridiculous shoulder-pads he had in the 90's) .

This one still has a lot of yellow, but I like the alterations that make it reference a modified version of an X-men uniform, since he's sort of an ambassador for the school. And that utility belt looks boss.

If they added that belt to the black suit I think it would be cool as hell.

I've always liked the X-Men Mythos take on the costumes. Mainly because I've always liked how honest and up-front the original uniforms were with no attempts to be overly sexy or look too hard. They looked like they'd actually give you some protection in the field and utility was the priority versus looking good.

That's how I imagine them, I guess. Black leather for durability, with masks to hide their identities (because they were teenagers), and yellow to identify each other in complex combat situations (the bright color being especially helpful to Cyclops). Whether it was that well thought out by Kirby or not, it still just makes a lot of sense.

I also always admired later versions that took the strengths and weaknesses of different characters into consideration. Consider that Cyclops' later costume's (especially his John Cassaday one), were mostly black for stealth, since he has no more durability than a normal human, whereas tougher characters like Wolverine or Colossus had brighter costumes, making them better targets to draw fire away from the less physically durable characters.

I like them -- if anything, I am dreading what the new costumes will look like while this whole "Atom" business goes down to line up with the 50th Anniversary.
