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

I honestly think that tights just don't make sense for Batman period. They offer no protection whatsoever, not from impact or bullets or even simple things like temperature or the elements, and they get incredibly uncomfortable when wet. Leather and body armor make sense of Batman. You just have to design it properly.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
