Default Re: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's the Superman Costume Thread! - Part 2

If you take a look at the Burton version of the suit worn by Nicolas Cage you can see that the wrists look marked and resemble to MOS suit's ones:

As far as Superman Flyby project is concerned, I wanted to share this picture who came out lately ( to whoever hasn't seen it yet ). I think that the design is really well done.
There are obviously similarities, but it's the the differences that make all those suits look horrible to me and the current one look amazing.

First image - Suit goes up the neck, and has no cape, and I don't like the big gold circular belt thingys. I think the one small circular thing on the current suit looks a lot better.

Second image - One of the better designs, but I dont like the way the cape goes up the neck, the blue boots, or the design of the 's' sheild over the MOS one.

Third image - The plasticy material is ridiculously hideous, especially the crotch.

Fourth image - Again, don't like the plasticy material, prefer the MOS sheild, and the lines on it remind me of the New 52 suit.

Basically the MOS suit has taken all the designs and cut out everything that made them not work.

I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.

"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
