In this list, we will explore the 10 Worst Female Superhero Costumes in DC Comics, diving into why these particular outfits failed to resonate with fans and detracted from the powerful personas they were meant to enhance.
In the 1980s, Black Canary’s costume took a questionable turn, straying far from her classic black jacket and leotard.
The ’90s brought a radical redesign for Wonder Woman. Ditching her iconic costume, she adopted biker shorts and a jacket, a significant departure from her classic look.
The costume of Starfire’s New 52 sparked controversy for its overt sexualization. The outfit consisted of thin purple strips barely covering the essentials, emphasizing her sexuality over her character.
Similar in design to Starfire’s Star, Sapphire’s costume suffered from the same issue of skimpiness. With minimal fabric and an unnecessary high collar, it was more revealing than empowering.
The ’70s era Princess Projecta showcased a costume featuring a leotard with a central bare cutout and crisscrossing lace.
In the New 52 Raven’s costume was a departure from her traditional look, incorporating an unnecessary mask and an overuse of feathers.
In the ’90s, Black Canary’s costume echoed elements of her traditional outfit but took a turn towards the risqué.
The another example of a female superhero outfit that left little to the imagination is Sensor Girl’s costume.
The costume of Power Girl’s ’80s was a confusing ensemble. Featuring shoulder pads, a cape reminiscent of Shazam, and an ’80s-style headband, it clashed with the character’s traditional aesthetic.
