Sure they can go and maybe say he creates the suit based on what krypton wear was like. But i rather costume be earth made. And for his own creation.

My feelings are that if we're going to go down the traditional costume route let's acknowledge why it looks the way it does as the creators originally intended. Thus the circus explaination. It puts to rest the debate about the shorts. I've never really liked the shorts in live action especially for a modern day Superman, but for me the Circus explaination makes perfect sense. It's like "yes it looks the way it does and here's why" vs "oh yeah it's really from krypton...but it looks like he's wearing underwear on the outside...b/c that's how they dressed on krypton?"

If it's from krypton i'd like a nice redesign that brings in that scifi element. But if it's from earth it's easier for me to accpet why it looks the way it does and the circus explaination just acknowledges what the origial creators had in mind.
