    I wouldn't have too much of a problem with more practical costumes....if they actually bothered to make them practical instead of just looking really dull and bland without any added utility. i.e. Wanda's Marvel Now outfit is arguably far less practical than her old one. I mean, the classic costume was basically just a dancer's leotard, which should give her a full range of motion, while the new one looks like an extremely constrictive jacket, under which she is apparently wearing nothing, and combines "gloves attached to sleeves" with "heels attached to pants." So practical.

    I imagine superhero costumes to be made from material not in out world. The F4 have special costumes that can take a good beating, so O imagine the X-Men costumes can too, that survive extreme heat, extreme cold, is antiperspirant, etc.

    In regards to practicality, the superheroes in MU are basically celebrities to the public, so they all have to look good, like when a celebrity is on the red carpet. So, yeah, the costumes can be ridiculous looking, but it seems that's what the public expects from them. It's almost like a performance job. It's the only explanation I can think of, so superhero world has a bit of a different culture than ours because they live in the superhero reality.

    I loved Quitely's costumes...now those looked practical, except for Emma's -- though hers was in-character. Almost like Lady Gaga wearing meat to the red carpet loolol.

    I think Reed shared with everyone in the MU. Or maybe they infringed on his rights?!

    They are mentioned in the Generation X -1 issue.

    I figured Reed has manufactured his findings to all the superheroes. His funds gotta come from somewhere.

    I could never stand Reed Richards, maybe it's because he's such an insensitive jerkoff, but I think it's mostly because over fifty years of F4 comics, there's not a single shred of hard science to be found anywhere. With so many prominent science based heroes, Marvel should really try to make their stories a bit more realistic in that regard, after all real science is so much more interesting and novel than the stuff masquerading as it in comics.

    Just look at X-Men, Watson and Crick published their seminal DNA paper ten years before the first X-Men comic was published, so it's not like mutation was some mysterious thing nobody understood. I don't even know what the canon says anymore, something about Celestials and the Phoenix and some other mumbo jumbo. At the very least, they could acknowledge that there are no "stages" to evolution, and that new species are not somehow predestined to displace the older ones. You don't even have to have read anything to know this, just think about it for two seconds.

    To be honest, mutations are also called cancer IRL.

    I don't know how mutants with magic powers can be considered since its based off magic and not science. Though in the MU it seems there's a thin line between magic a and science. I have never been much into the feats though.

    I love Emma because she craftily uses her powers and stuff and there really isn't much wank to her powers.

    In reality unstable molecules do exist (they can only exist in extreme circumstance such as under extremely low pressure or in vacuum glow discharge tube though).

    Emma costumes! Not that impractical, aren't they lol?

    None of those costumes look anything like Emma, though. Has she ever had a costume with a skirt? And Jesus Christ, I love Emma but if I had a ten year old daughter I'd probably stab my eyes out before I let her wear an Emma Halloween costume. Good to see them putting that Women of Marvel branding to good use, though....

    I've post the kids costume because it's appropriate for ten-year-old girls.

    The adult one is gorgeous too. And if you've seen other Superheroines' Halloween costumes, you would never say that Emma costume is revealing.

    These days they probably think it's just easier to stick the woman in a skirt so that's the trend. Here's Phoenix's Halloween costume.
