Luke Cage

Luke Cage used to wear a bright yellow shirt, blue jeans, a chain for a belt, and a silver tiara. To this day, people make fun of what he wears. It made absolutely no sense. Sure, they were going for a blaxploitation, but it was still bad.

During New Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis, there was an attempt to give him something more heroic. Thankfully, was short-lived. Luke Cage doesn’t need a superhero uniform or tights. He looks more like himself when he’s in regular clothes. Recently, Luke Cage dawned a new uniform to keep his identity secret. It made sense, but Luke in anything but regular clothes looks weird.

Daredevil

On the cover of Daredevil’s first appearance (April 1964), he wore yellow and red. It’s a good thing that didn’t stick. His all-red appearance fits him better. He’s supposed to be the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Unless flames were coming from his original gear, yellow doesn’t work. Combining the horns and red eyes in the mask that can’t be seen through makes him appear like the actual Devil. The Man Without Fear is easily one of the most recognizable characters of all time and it starts with what he's currently wearing.
