Default Re: What do you think of the new Superman costume

No, they don't. Their costumes have other things going on that distract from not having trunks: the sash like belt on Captain Marvel, the more ornate cape, the gauntlets, and the pirate boots, plus the flap on the shoulder. Cap's costume is so busy that trunks would be too much. With Flash, he has the lightening bolts on his forearms, the belt, the wings on his mask and on his boots, again trunks would be too much on what is a pretty busy costume. With Superman and Batman, the simplicity of their costumes is what makes them work, and without the trunks they look too bland. The trunks fit the rest of their costumes because of how simple and straightforward they are. Now they have replaced the trunks with a bunch of seams in the 52 costume and the tramp stamp on the MOS suit, and in both cases they look stupid, much more stupid than the trunks ever did.

If capes and trunks are stupid then superheroes are stupid.
