Re: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's the Superman Costume Thread! - Part 2
Everyone does have a right to their opinion. In that case I choose to decide that tradition is more important. Lack of trunks IN MY OPINION is just wrong. It's not the same as when the width of the belt, the size of the S shield, the shape of the boots, the S curl, or the length of the cape changes. Those are all subjective according to the artist or designer. But I believe (with the exception of Cavill's suit as it has actually grown on me) that trunks are essential.
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
