But seriously, costume alterations were around about a decade before Batman (Jor-El, Lex Luthor, Zod and co.), and blaming Batman for them seems a little silly. To also say that that era of tight-wearing heroes is "over" is a little premature, and needlessly pessimistic.
1-BP wasn't exactly
who I was talking about, but seeing what he wore in Ultimate Avengers 2 does have me a little worried.
And it's mainly the heroes' looks that I'm talking about, whereas you're citing villains & supporting characters-from a movie which, I hasten to point out, had no problem showcasing its hero in tights. When you think about it, in the Burton/Schumacher films, the villains' costumes were overall more faithful in terms of design than Batman's.
And I agree that it's premature to dismiss the idea of tights altogether. It's more than likely too late for Batman & probably for the best where the X-Men are concerned, but there's still hope for the heroes yet to come, I think.
