Re: Ultimate costumes, which ones worked, which ones didn't and what should be change
Most of them sucked.
The ones that worked well were the ones that took away the stupid, unpractical elements. Doc Oc's trenchcoat was a major improvement over his earlier green jumpsuit *shudder*. Ultimate Hawkeye's original costume was MUCH better than his 616. Electro naked is a huge improvement over the retarded lightning bolts coming out of his face.
The X-Men costumes were just as horrible as 616. Particularly Cyclops.
Okay, but how could they be improved?
I think one problem is there are very few creepy looking villains in the UU, Ultimate Sinister looks creepy, Mole man looks pretty creepy (though that's due to his physical appearance than his outfit). Compared that to Batman's rogues gallery, many of them look very creepy, especially the Timm versions of these characters.
Also they should have changed the color scheme for several villains. The only reason that most Spidey villains wear green is because in the 60s green ink was cheap and black ink was expensive, that's no longer the case, so Vulture and Scorpion should wear black costumes.
