Redesign gone wrong…

The new look for Wonder Woman has been a big topic. I without question agree with my fellow ‘Noizer and give this two thumbs down. It’s screaming 1994 in the worst way.

Speaking of… way back when Mrs. Richards aka Susan Storm aka the Invisible Woman had a pretty horrific makeover herself. To set the tone, Vampirella and Lady Death were hot and the “era of bad girl comics” was in full effect. So, someone with a great deal of originality and understanding of the character thought “Hey, why not?” and THIS was the result…

Hrm. Really?  And the jacket wasn’t really a part of the outfit. So for better reference…

Yeah. Thigh highs and cleavage peek-a-boo. Classy. And what about The Thing? Why’s he got a iron mask over his face?? Well, he got scarred. Yes, the giant rock dude had half his face melted, and being the vein creature he is, saw the need to cover that up. Maybe they threw in a “needs to heal” side story, but I don’t remember.

If anyone is unaware of this era of the Fantastic Four… I recommend it for the morbidly curious. Its dark, convoluted and overall pretty crappy. Yuck.
