Favorite Costumes: Yellowjacket

There was something very visceral
about the first appearance of the Yellowjacket.
Perhaps that ignited my passion
for the costume; attributing the dark side to it.

But this alter for Hank Pym's otherwise subdued
personality has always been a favorite.

The very basic yet electric design;
strong and subtle and pure.

I even enjoyed the female character
that took over the role in the years it was unused.
It's just such a flawless, simple design.

But the original just kicks ass.

  1. Yeah, he was always a favorite of mine ever since I saw him in one of my very first comics, Avengers #177. Needless to say I was very sad to see what Shooter did to him 50 or so issues later. He deserves much better than that. Even Busiek's attempts at bringing him back never really caught either. Thanks for the great post!
