Some superheroes have had the same costume for years, while others have had a lot of costume changes. And for some reason these costumes seem... unsatisfactory (what a word). Some may be OK to some, but need a little bit more for real impact for others. Here are some heroes that I feel need improved costumes.

Luke Cage is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list 12 Heroes Needing New Costumes

Luke Cage, known as Power Man back in the day, the man whose skin can't be cut, sported a yellow open-chested shirt with bands around him. Today, they simplified his getup to a yellow t-shirt and jeans - nothing can be more boring. At least the old costume had a chain he could use. He needs something new.

While Cyclops had gone through many costume changes, like his x-Men teammates, his latest visor is just weird. Sure, it's an X, for X-Men. But it just looks weird - like someone painted an X on his mask. Sure, it simplifies artwork, but perhaps a visor with an X shape would do better.

Mockingbird is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list 12 Heroes Needing New Costumes

While her latest costume seems practical, it's just... boring. Maybe because the character's become boring as of late, but I believe it's because she just lost the "bird" in it. She sure needs a more striking costume.

Yes, while this red costume is certainly her trademark look, it just looks like... lingerie these days. I mean, back in the day, wearing your underwear over your clothes made you a superhero. Those were the tastes in those days. It's perhaps time to change to something... less bewitching? But she should keep the diadem.
