Re: The Batsuit Master Thread - Part 2
The more I see cloth manips, the more I prefer the armoured suits.
Agree it doesn't need to go the length of Iron Man. I was watching Under the Red Hood and at one point Todd strikes Batman's neck with a knife. There's obvious armour (looks like chainmail) underneath. The knife merely cuts the cloth exterior without harming the armour or the body underneath.
There definitely needs to be something around the waist height to break up the costume a little.
TDK definitely went OTT with all of the plates esp on the lower body but I think a few plates in a few key places would be fine.
