Costume Hall of Shame - Black Racer
As a character, it was a very neat idea to have a Vietnam veteran assume the mantle of the Angel of Death. It was also cool that his appearance always meant the death of a character.
But skis? Skis aren't cool. Ever. I guess Jack Kirby was feeling cocky when he hit a homer with the Silver Surfer, but any mode of transportation where you have to hold a stick in each hand to keep from falling flat on your face just ain't awe-inspiring, especially for an Angel of Death.
