Those costumes are there because they are superheroes, they are the X-Men and the comics have them.
No one's doubting that they're costumes because they're superheroes. But many of us feel that it is in good taste to at least create the idea that they're for a purpose. Your rationale is no rationale and to just put them in costumes for no reason.
