    He doesnt have a secret identity or anything so why does he wear a costume? Is it because fans like it?

    Thanks.

    its eye candy. The X-men costumes/uniforms aren't part of their mythos like it is with Batman and Superman.

    He's a superhero, and superheroes wear uniforms-- even the ones without secret identities. It's what distinguishes them from other people.

    It's better that he wear a costume or uniform, he's a X-Man.

    It's thinking like that that screwed up the costumes in the movies. Also you're not a comic fan if you don't get it.

    He is a comic book super hero, nuff said!!!

    It is a comic book!!!

    WTF is with these stupid people that don't get it?! So stupid!

    I agree. Just like Hulk always looks best in ripped shorts.

    The costumes weren't screwed up.

    That is, unless you actually wanted the X-Men movies to be Power Rangers remakes...

    Actually, the first Power Rangers movie had some pretty good costumes.

    He's following the Geneva convention of wearing an identifiable uniform when going into combat.

    It's the only rule he follows by the way.

    I always thought that he wore a costume for protection....sure he can heal from wounds but back in the day it would take him a while to heal....so why not cover up the especially soft parts. Sure he can recover from a shotgun to the groin...but why would he want to????

    at the end of the day costumes give a level of flexibility and posible protection that normal clothes don't.

    it's like asking why martial artists get dressed up to spar and so forth, or climbers disrobe to climb.

    good practice.

    i think a large proportion of the x-men look better in their normal clothes.
