    For the same reason Cyclops will never stop using his visor, it's the most iconic thing about the characters design.

    Second. The first would be his buns of steel.

    Probably the same reason Healer still wraps himself in gauze like a mummy.

    I also find it amusing how some artists draw Callisto really pretty, and just with an eye patch, and only a few remember she's also supposed to be ugly AF.

    Pretty much. I believe Duggan essentially said as much on Twitter. He said something like, “Because it’s how she sees herself.”

    This is correct. Callisto only wanted her powers back, but looks is what she prefers for herself when it comes to her body.

    Being rezzed is supposed to fix that.
    No matter how powerful a character is, if someone has to hold their snowflake hand, and remind them how very special they are before they stop whining long enough to save the day; they're not truly a badass.

    So ugly she had to steal the hunks literally.

    I think looking away from her moral repugnance for a moment she had some appeal. Some people have a thing for broken noses I heard and some rock stars its in how they carry themselves, not the looks - or so I heard again.

    It would look totally bad ass if he no longer wore his visor, I can imagine Yu making him look like a demented Superman with glowing red eyes during battle

    He definitely would want to remove that visor once he realizes in an AU he was one of those hunks.
