Does that mean I did this to Superman...?
Looks like a cross between "ultimate Superman"



and Conner-Superman

Both of which look better than Lee's Superman redesign.

That's not straying too far from the classic Superman tales of old. During the 60s, Supes used to have his Clark Kent suits made of a special material and he could fold them up and stash them in a hidden inside pocket on his cape.

Funny thing about the high collar...they never explained it in the FF movies when Johnny flames on :P

It's actually part 1 of one of the best Superman storylines ever written, and the angle with the costume is important to the story. Where else would he store his costume if he's wearing a Gi? I know it's silly and crazy, but within the context of the story it actually works.

I'd definitely like to give it a read.

Just saw it on Superman Homepage. A poster there said it. Might be false but still...

Yeah, sounds like it's false.

They'd probably tell you that you're doing it wrong.

The new costume has that it-could-be-alien look which I think makes sense as the suit's origin.
I don't like it when the suit and shield are attributed to the minds of Pa and Ma Kent.
The suit and shield should be alien in origin.
It kinda looks like what Nic Cage would have worn in Superman Lives, doesn't it?

Sort of, except the new suit doesn't look like rubber and it actually incorporates yellow in the design. I hope we don't have an "armored" suit in the film.

With this as an example; the more we see of the redesign, the more we're going to love it. (I guess I don't have to be blamed). Then again, give it a few years, and the redesign will be gone and the classic will return. It happened in the '80s, '90s, and 2000s; it'll happen again.

Can't wait to see the cover to Morrison's Superman.

Maybe the suit would look better if a man was wearing it and not some 12 year old looking Clark

I doubt it. I don't think anything could make this costume look good
