Know Thy History: The Red Bee – bonus round
The Red Bee’s questionable attire gets him a lot of crap. His stripey tights and transparent blouses makes him to the poster boy of terrible superhero design. And, make no mistake, it IS eye-searingly bad. However, the surprising thing about reading Hit Comics, the home of The Red Bee, is that he was hardly the worst dressed out of the heroes featured within. Hit Comics was a horror house of fashion nightmares.
Don’t believe me? Observe:
Check out the look on the pilot’s face as he’s attacked by the hero Hercules. You can tell he’s all, “Oh … crap. How am I going to explain to the guys back at HQ that I got attacked by a pervert wearing a cape, underpants, and nothing else?” Look, when even pro-wrestlers are dressed more modestly than you, you’re in desperate need of an emergency make-over.
Let me just say, Stormy Foster, that I love the pencil-thin moustache. It’s a facial hair statement that gets so little respect nowadays, especially since Deadshot seems to no longer be sporting his fantastic ‘stache in the pages of Suicide Squad. That said: your costume consists of what can be accurately described as a pair of tighty whities.
Why are there so many ass shots?!?!?
We’re… we’re going on some kind of sex offender registry for viewing Lion Boy, aren’t we?
On the other hand…
Look at this suave mofo. Don Glory is everything you want in a Champion of Democracy … and more. He’s the dude you want to have delivering punches … punches of FREEDOM.
