Month of Avengers/X-Men Top Fives – Top Five Wasp Costumes

All month-long we’ll be featuring top five lists about either the Avengers or the X-Men. Here is an archive of all the past top five lists!

In this installment, based on a suggestion by Josh G., we take a look at the top five Wasp costumes…



First off, got to pay homage to Kirby’s original…

This Herb Trimpe design circa 1972 is one of her most well-known outfits, but I dunno, it is basically just John Buscema’s design from Avengers #53, just with a different color pattern that I don’t think was even particularly great.

5. Avengers (Volume 3) #36

I think this Alan Davis design is quite snazzy.

4. Avengers #194

I always liked this George Perez design just for out there it is. It really is a daring design.

3. Avengers #53

The aforementioned Buscema design, this one basically defined the Wasp’s styles for years to come…

2. Avengers Forever #1

Carlos Pacheco’s design is so strong…

that with just some slight adjustments during Geoff Johns’ run…

this costume has been perhaps the most-worn costume the Wasp has had. It’s a really strong, modern look.

1. Avengers #267

I freely admit that this Buscema design is basically just an updated version of his classic Avengers #53 design, but there’s just something so striking about the use of yellow and the dark blue that really stands out and I think it is no coincidence that Pacheco went for a similar approach with his design…

Does the fact that I associate this costume with such a great period in Avengers history help? Sure, but I still think it the Wasp’s best costume.

That’s the list! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
