Default Re: The Batsuit Thread

I agree with you. The design above is improved from its predecessor, but it still has the look of a man inside a mechanical suit. We shouldn't feel that Batman is able to smash his way through gangs and soak up bullets because of his costume and gear. They are there to save his life on the rare occasion that he is hit by a glancing bullet. They are not there with the expectation that he will be invulnerable.
