Despite enjoying that joke in the first movie, I agree in part. The costumes can be made to not look so corny and still stay close to the comic look. For example, Spiderman's costume looks traditional but has texture that makes it look cool on the big screen. The Xmen's uniforms could have had this and possible a little darker appearance. Black leather certainly didn't look like it would be easy to fight in.

Agreed. I wish they'd gone with the original team and the original Jack Kirby designed black and yellow uniforms. They were so cool and kind of creepy. Just take a look at the issue of Marvels they were featured in.
