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

I tend to assume that most costumes aren't made of spandex, because spandex is A) Often impractical for the stuff the characters are doing, and B) In the case of characters who make their own costumes, spandex isn't very good for sewing with, unless you have it be so thick that it removes the benefits of spandex. I tend to assume that Spider-Man's costume, for example, is made from inexpensive cotton of decent quality.
