It's almost perfect in a way. The New 52 suit, on the other hand, always looks like armor; and the overall design pattern is a little too busy for my taste. What's worse about that costume is that it only looks cool when penciled by the man who created it -- Jim Lee. Sometimes, even he has problems making it look good on paper.
I guess you could say that the suits have something in common in that they both lack red trunks and have a somewhat metallic texture, but that's not a huge similarity in my opinion. Having just trashed the New 52 costume, though, I will admit that I prefer the way it's colored -- nice and vibrant.
