List Rules The worst supervillain costumes in comic book movies.

Super villains have all the fun, but in comic book movies, the villains also have the worst costumes. In almost any superhero movie, the only person wearing a goofier outfit than the hero is the bad guy. Sometimes that makes them even more memorable than the heroes, but other times, it just means that really good actors are stuck sporting stupid outfits. If you couldn't tell where this was heading, prepare for a list of the worst costumes worn by comic book movie super villains.

Even the worst of these super villain costumes started with good intentions. The Green Goblin in Spider-Man, for instance. The filmmakers toyed with some incredible makeup effects and H.R. Giger-inspired concept designs, but they ended up with a glorified Power Rangers bad guy in a blockbuster superhero movie. Even with an unhinged Willem Dafoe performance behind Goblin's mask, the Spider-Man villain's costume will always be remembered as an emerald dud.
