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

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.
Hey look at Arkham Unhinged #1 this week .......Batman in trunks!
