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.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
