Plus he's had a big yellow belt FOREVER. Would it really be all that better to have gunfire attracted to it and get shot in the abdomen? Seriously, he's got two big handles on his head, and a big cape that people could grab or even he himself could trip on, and somehow a yellow symbol is what's going to get him killed?
