If the film is visually amazing, it can't blow. That's a paradox for me personally.

That is such an awesome picture. That's my Superman right there. I am so glad I chose Superman as a kid... or did it choose me?

So you thought Transformers: Dark of the Moon didn't blow?

QFT. That image is quintessential in my book.

And by the way, just thought I'd toss this out there for reaction/discussion:

I believe that the tights add a mythical, imaginative nature to superheroes.... figuratively. But feasibly? No, sorry. Some things are just the way they are.

The only reason Superman pulled it off, is because well, he's kind of a bad-ass.

Apparently sportsmen from the 30's... like that guy. I don't think it looks ridiculous in the right context. I think the idea was just to add another layer over tights for "modesty" purposes. Takes balls to step into the ring wearing that getup if you ask me.

That is a fantastic article Comic heroes really are in a sense time capsules of ideas.

You know, i was thinking the same thing, but there is another pic of Henry in the suit, taking a picture with a little boy, and the colors in both pictures are similar.

Yes, it's a fan pic. This manip is a combination of like 3 or 4 set pics plus the vault pic they released.

I Agree! It's freaking amazing. I was going through all the set pics (again!) after a LOOONG period of no news one day. I had an "AW MAAN" moment when I noticed it. What tipped me off was the cape, then his head looked like another picture, and then it was how the lighting was exactly the same as another, so on and so forth. lol Best I've ever seen.

^that maniped picture, for me at least, shows that the trunks weren't really necessary to begin with. I'm glad that they decided to rip the bandaid off and remove them. If they want to reach a bigger audience they have to show they are doing a few things different. Even if the movie will pretty much be something we have seen.

I think, had wearing trunks been part of everyday lifestyle at some point in our history than I could see the reason for keeping it. But they never were.

I stumbled upon these old Flyby pieces on a guy's Myspace page. He's an Argentinian concept artist (I think it's this same guy) and he has a lot of awesome stuff in his blog too (http://marianoadiaz.blogspot.com/), including a couple of other Flyby drawings. Cool, hm?

Apparently Clark got a buzz-cut in Flyby?

Great find.
