I already made a similar comment about the 'golf ball' texture at Caped's Facebook page. My real question would be, if there really is a Superman, of what use is the 'golf ball' effect on his flight, since he already has all that power to thrust him into the air? Will air friction actually stop or slow down the real Superman? Highly unlikely.

Plus, we who grew up in the Superman mythos know that in the Superman 'world', his costume is only to keep him clothed or to identify him apart from other super powered beings, not to help him during flight. In the same manner, I don't see the point of putting texture on Superman's costume, but that's just me...
