Default Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?

I think the easiest way to look at things is simply to accept that what works on the page doesn't always translate well into real life, there are plenty of comic costumes where you can just see how they wouldn't work in live action. It might sound cliched but it rings true, that also goes for things like altering story arcs, character origins, settings, etcs, it's not just costumes. You've also got to take into account the type of character and the type of movie they are making, so really you just have to take each character as they come. The way I look at it, if a character's costume in a comic is iconic, as long as the suit keeps the spirit of the comic book design it shouldn't matter what the materials are made out of or whether it's got too many seams or whether it's deemed 'to busy', the point is if it's clearly recognizable as the character, really what difference does it make?
