Why isn't that a good reason? What's wrong with respecting the character's visual iconography? Why does there need to be a reason for every little thing?

I'm not attached to the briefs at all, but I just don't understand why some people are so vehemently against their inclusion.

I just figure people would like a character they liked to be well thought out and not just wear underwear outside his pants for the hell of it, and despite pages of them saying there are good reasons for it there still hasn't been one that fits the bill.
I haven't heard any convincing arguments from either side, to be honest.

Like I said, coming from a film background where each and every decision is made purposefully, I'd like to know if there's an angle where they really are necessary.
Purposeful decisions aren't always necessarily necessary for the story being told. (I hope that made sense.)

But **** it, it really doesn't matter, well get what we get and I'm sure it'll look better than any of us could have come up with anyway, haha. Mos set a very good precedent for that.
Imagine the cape porn.
