This early in the series, the X-Men uniforms are fairly simple. They are each wearing blue and gold spandex with a mask to hide their identity. Iceman gets away without much of a uniform, but as we saw in our last post he still has to get his blue and gold boots on before he can do any fighting. These uniforms might seem a bit hokey and boring to those of us used to their modern appearance, but this look has really grown on me. For one thing, they are all new recruits in the early comics. This design emphasizes the team spirit more than their individual personalities. I think of this as boot camp. The Professor is trying to mold them into a team, and he often warns them against arrogance and showboating. It makes sense that their uniforms share a cohesive theme.
