Get your Aqua Net ready for these super cool coifs!

10. She-Hulk

The only thing bigger than Jennifer Walters’ muscles is her huge hair! She-Hulk was easily ‘80s royalty with her sass, her strength – and her massive strands!


9. Sue Storm

Sue Storm always had an eye for trends, and when she chopped her hair off, it marked a new era for the new Invisible Woman!

8. Longshot

Another entry in the epic mullet hall of fame is the interdimensional hero Longshot! No doubt that party in the back made his rebellion against Mojo a fun one!


7. Misty Knight

Misty Knight’s bionic arm isn’t her only source of power – her Afro is a timeless and knockout style when she’s fighting crime as a Daughter of the Dragon or alongside Power Man and Iron Fist!

6. Dazzler

As a mutant with a musical gift, Dazzler has taken on tons of rock star-inspired looks – but all of them have been truly outrageous!


5. Tony Stark

He might be more well-known for his facial hair nowadays, but back in the Me Decade – a decade Tony could really get behind – the man behind Ol’ Shellhead had a perm under that helmet!

4. Rogue

Rogue’s mutant powers may strike fear into her enemies, but her ever-morphing mane – with her trademark skunk stripe – might be even more imposing!


3. Rachel Summers

Rachel may come from an alternate future where things turned out different for the X-Men, but one thing stayed consistent – the rat-tail trend!

2. Wolverine

Wolvie has always been on the hairy side, but he really got to let his follicles fly in the ‘80s – especially once he got his own series!


1. Storm

Who else could top this list of ‘80s hair? As one of the most famous mutants in the X-Men, Storm’s mohawk became iconic in the Marvel Universe, making her a source of power, edge, and style!
