Default Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?

That manip is supposed to show a fabric-based Batman costume with armour underneath the costume, which is what he does have in the comics. True, Tim Burton may have popularised the armoured Batman costume (even though Frank Miller had Batman with armour underneath in The Dark Knight Returns, in 1986) but it is part of the comics now.

My philosophy is: as long as it is comic accurate, it doesn't matter how they rationalise it.

Of course, there are certain characters where it would be impossible to adapt the costume without changing the tone of the movie.
