BATTLE OF THE BAD COSTUMES! - Round 1


Ladies and Gentlemen,
Are ... You ... Ready ...  to RRRRRrrrrrrrumble?!

In this corner, we have a scrappy B'WANA BEAST, straight off of the cover of SHOWCASE  # 66, 1967, wearing a 'Magneto' helmet trimmed in leopard skin, red striped socks also trimmed in leopard skin, matching leopard skin brief covered by a red and white striped towel.

...and, his challenger,
in the other corner, the battler known as THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER from the cover of OUR FLAG COMICS # 4, 1942, wearing a flattering skin-tight 'gay nazi' ensemble.

The challenge? I am trying to locate the worst super-hero costume ever, and I'm starting right here!
You can see our stylish opponents, and I need YOUR HELP to judge which costume is worst!
If you were a crimefighter, and you had to wear only either one or the other, which costume would you NOT be caught dead in?

Please help me by letting me know your vote via leaving a comment below.

Good luck, come out swinging, and may the Worst Costume win!

DING!




PLEASE TELL ME WHICH COSTUME IS WORST!

FULFILLMENT - The Mystery Revealed


Last post I theorized a possible story from analyzing the cover of INCREDIBLE SCIENCE FICTION # 31, from EC Comics, 1955. Upon re-reading the story, I believe I may have jumped to my humorous conclusions a bit hastily. There is more going on here than meets the eye in that fascinating Jack Davis cover. Two readers also offered their own ingenius interpretations, leaving no other recourse but to post the original story and see how we compare. Fortunately, there are only winners here.
