I guess. Honestly, there's nothing inherently wrong with a redesign if it still looks good, although I will admit that in most cases where they changed the costume a lot, I would have preferred something closer to the original. However, most of the cases where I disliked the change were cases where the change made less sense than something truer to the original (Nite-Owl's movie costume couldn't have existed in the late 60s). I think it largely depends on how good/iconic the original design was. Bullseye and Elektra's outfits, for example, didn't bother me one way or the other
