Fear My Tight Leopard-Skin Pants Thursday!

Even an amazing hero can have his low points.  Consider this scene from Amazing Spider-Man #15:

Spidey, if you'll just turn your head to the left a little, I think you'll notice a full-grown man jumping out the window three feet from you.  Just a little... tiny... too much trouble?  Never mind.

It really needs to be said:

Kraven may have been tough, but his costume was downright ridiculous.  Is it the hair cape that only the Creeper could pull off?  Is it the house slippers that only Iron Fist could pull off?  Is it the leopard-skin pants that... well, only a middle-aged woman with no fashion sense would dare to try to pull off?  Or is it just the unfortunate combination of everything?  Whatever the reason, welcome to the Costume Hall of Shame!

Spidey resolved to never again answer a personal ad on "Craigslist..."

Hey!  It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue!(tm!)  Courtesy of Amazing Spider-Man #16:

Oh, Karen Page.  You did get around.

See you tomorrow!

You KNOW you're TOUGH when...
...Your costume looks ridiculous and you're STILL considered a bad-ass!
(And Kraven was one SERIOUS bad-ass!

Now, if his daughter, Ana, wants to wear his costume when she turns 18...

Maybe David Lee Roth could pull off that look?

I fear David Lee Roth.

Even as a kid reading this for the first time off the news stand this costume didn't make sense. How did you wear a lion's head split in half? Were the opposing faces stuffed or were the sinuses, jaws, brain case all there on display. Too much distraction!
