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

And why are those days over? Huh? Because Hollywood ended them, that's why. And audiences went along with it. I put "realism" in quotes because the need to justify seems to translate almost invariable into reality vs. fantasy. Now I'm not saying that every character should wear tights onscreen but I think there should be more wiggle room for what we assume audiences will & will not accept. (I can't believe I'm siding with JAK after all the times we've fought!) Costumes are generally justified in comics and it's not over-analyzed. I would hate to see someone like Black Panther decked out in leather because it's considered "more realistic". And I DO NOT want Cap in his "ultimized" costume either. I want to see Captain America, not a patriotic reject from G.I. Joe.

May he finally find the peace that eluded him in life.
There is only ONE Spider-Man. His name is Peter Parker. He's an adult, and he's straight!
