Comic Book Legends Revealed #544

COMIC LEGEND: John Byrne came up with the idea to give Invisible Woman a mullet.

STATUS: Basically False

Last week, I did a feature on the top five superhero mullets.

The Invisible Woman was prominently featured with her glorious mullet...

At the time, I wrote "One thing John Byrne made a point of on his Fantastic Four run was to give the characters modern hairstyles. He was actually well ahead of the game with Sue Richards' mullet."

However, my buddy JohnByrneDraws rightly corrected me that the Sue Richards mullet was NOT John Byrne's idea, but rather was the result of a curious comic coiffure contest.

From Fantastic Four #258...

Five issues later, they gave us a head's up on the progress of the contest, along with John Byrne drawings of two of the more popular suggestions thus far...

Finally, in Fantastic Four #271, the winning haircut made its debut...

But here's the problem, as Fantastic Four #269 pointed out, the winner was never actually found...

What a fun contest to run for the fans, even if the end result was, well, you know, a mullet.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
