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

Realism is the wrong word, justification is probably a better alternative, 'why would this character wear this costume?' is the question, and really there's nothing wrong with asking it. I think in film, especially if the character is to be treated seriously a la Batman or Iron Man, you have to at least try to give some rational reason as to why this person would start to wear some ridiculous outfit. I think they days of simply accepting 'that just how it is' for these big name characters are over.
