I can't decide—

Is Namor's X-Men costume completely awesome, or is it actually just awesomely terrible?

I think he always looks good in black and/or blue, and the fish-scale looking material is nice, although I'm having some trouble with the fact that the pans make it look as if he's wearing leather chaps.

The crux of my inability to figure out if I actually love or hate the new costume are the little X-shapes at the ankles of his chaps—on the one hand, it seems like crass over-marketing, but on the other hand, it's totally sweet how the bottom of the X forms a little space from which his little ankle wings can protrude from.

I'd go with pretty awesome, but not quite completely awesome. :)

The X ruins the costume.

I dunno, I rather like it.

I love everything about this costume. So much better than the green Speedo, and it also doesn't have the dopey yellow wings.

costume's ok.

but a green speedo with a big red X on it would so stupid that it would awesome!

upon closer examination, the popped collar makes him extra douchey looking and the holes for the wings on his feet seem weird now.

but i'm sure it'd be weirder if he was barefoot with pants. cuz then he'd look like a hippie and namor seems like the type of guy who would beat the crap outta hippies.

Wow it looks like the sort of costume Namor would wear if he ever joined the x-men for some reason!

Wait, what? Really?
