> I was sitting here looking at an Alex Ross picture featuring several members of the JSA and it got me thinking about some of the characters needing updated threads. I'm not talking about Flash or GL. They are classic and should stay the way they are, although I did like the Flash when he had lightning down his pant legs.

1. Star Spangled Kid/Stargirl. Her costume was all cool back when she got started, but the "shorts" just look goofy anymore as well as the red boots. They remind me of clown shoes.

2. Mr. Terrific. It's time he updated that rejected Michael Jackson Thriller outfit in favor of something different.

3. Cyclone, I just loathe that wretched outfit she has on.

I do think that Sand's outfit is awesome. I just wish we could see more of him in the book or elsewhere.

Does anyone have a character whose outfit you think is in need of an update?

I think Cyclone's costume is supposed to be terrible. It's just random bits thrown together.

I'd like to see Sand return to the military surplus look he had back in the first few issues of the 1999 series. This new outfit tries to pay homage to Wes but just doesn't feel right.
