    I am surprised looking at that list, it misses out on some obvious and deserving targets - Wonderman's early WCA ghastly Green & Red skintight monstrosity being #1. One of the worst looks in comics even then in the brief mid 80s taste-is-dead phase of fashion.
    Some other personal choices though include the following...

I was also expecting to see that at #1- it was the first to spring to mind.

    The Vision's beige look thanks to John Byrne - the irony is It actually makes sense. Logically a character like The Vision would be coloured for stealth and to fit the idea behind his name and powers.
    In practise though it was dull visually and made him unmemorable. It also worked against his sense of character, he actually became as dull as he looked.

Hated this whole direction for the character.

    USAgent - In principle his look is not all that bad, just a little too basic and functional. The problem with it is as much the fact that John Walker was always wearing Steve Rogers cast offs, and this didn't do a lot for his individuality as unconciously the reader was always contrasting him with Steve Rogers' time in the suit and the hight standar he set - John Walker was never meant to be that character though, and why should he?

Actually I love this costume.

    Rage - Larry Hama's attempt to introduce an angry black man straight off the streets was dubious to begin with, clad him in a terrible ski-mask and sleeveless leathers and the impression was excruciating to look at and read.

Yeah, he was a terrible character with a terrible visual.

80's X-Men deserve a mention here too - especially Colossus, Rogue and Rachel.
