Yeah to think in an age where the youth of America think wearing pants below your butt and your belt around your thighs exposing underwear to everyone and having to walk with your legs wider than shoulder width apart looks good, that Superman's classic look would be an issue. Maybe he should wear skinny jeans or jeans 3 sizes too big instead!
