The Meteor Man, Jefferson Reed's Meteor Jacket

original movie costume

Jefferson Reed's (Robert Townsend) screen-worn signature jacket is an off-white linen that is plainly seen in the film's key scene and displays the handiwork of F/X technicians whose skills transformed Townsend's character from a meek schoolteacher to 'The Meteor Man', responsible for saving Washington D.C. from evil street gangs. Also included is Townsend's matching shirt with a breakaway back for lightning-quick costume changes.'Meteor Man' was among the first comic-book heroes portrayed by an African-American on film, a precedent soon followed by Wesley Snipes (Blade), Michael Jai White (Spawn), Halle Berry (Catwoman) Sam S. Jackson (Nick Fury), among others.
