    Probably an unpopular opinion but they need to bring her green/yellow costume back! It's so underrated. i feel like it gave her personality. Although the generic, yellow X-costume she's used for so long has grown on me kind of. The green and yellow is honestly probably my favorite though.

    I feel like Jean and Banshee have the market cornered on the green and yellow looks. I would prefer a more modern take on her Shadowcat outfit. I'm tired of the yellow pajamas. Even her Guardians costume I like more than her current one.

    She worked the Star-Lord outfit really well, so I'd create a costume that incorporated a (dark blue) jacket and knee high boots.

    That's a good point, actually. Although Rogue used it after Jean and Banshee and she probably has the most memorable use of it.

    The only thing I don't like about the Shadowcat costume is it doesn't really match her personality. I can see a modern take on it being potentially edgy. Maybe if they brightened up the blue it could work. I imagine her wearing something with bright colors.

    She has one of the most amazing mutations out there for sure

    And I love how sort of level-headed and down to earth she is but also kind of sassy. Just a genuine personality
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    I would also like to see that comeback. Most writers haven't taken full advantage of her ninja skills. In fact I only really remember her using them effectively in the Shadow & Flame mini series.

    And no mask. The final GOTG costume fits the bill, it's light blue.

    Do you have a picture? I only see her in variations of Star Lords outfit.
