I really like Thunderbird's costume. It's got a great color balance, and has enough nods to Thunderbird's cultural roots without overdoing it.

I really do wish more had been done with the character, it would be nice having a semi-popular (based on the popularity of most of the Second Gen X-men) Native American character who wasn't all about Indian spirit journeys and generally a walking stereotype.

I quite like this suit as well! Very distinct, but it still retains that classic superhero feel.

Like. I think the only thing preventing a "Love" on this one, is the Belt. There's just something about it that doesn't balance right.

I went with a Like, but I considered a love.
This is a pretty cool costume in my mind. The design easily evokes the Thunderbird motive and his native heritage. I like the colours. Not completely sold on the feathery shoulders and boots though.
