Mmm Hmm.

Okay, I have to ask. Is it a collective rule that in the DC-reboot universe, almost everyone must have terrible terrible costumes?

I mean, I've already reacted to the Red Robin monstrosity (I mean, when Dick Grayson is NOT the worst dressed of the batfolk, someone's screwed up somewhere.) The lack of red panties somehow makes Superman look even sillier.

And of course, there's Kory and her power pasties (random Flesh Gordon reference, FTW!).

I'm not against superheroes changing their clothes once in a while, but I'm not used to seeing so many stupid outfits at once. It's why I don't particularly care if Diana does or doesn't wear pants, since neither of her costumes have bird feathers (seriously, Tim, leave that for the circus star. He can't pull it off either, but at least he's old enough that I don't feel bad about making "it would look a lot better on a bedroom floor" cracks) or look like something out of a seventies soft-core porn superhero parody.

I'm sure sanity will win out in the end but right now I'm pretty amused. :-)

    May just be me, but the new Supergirl costume isn't terrible. I'm not sure what the extra straps around her legs are supposed to be, but the rest of the costume is reasonable.

    It's just you, Sean.

    These are some pretty dreadful costumes. Really, are we nostalgic for the '90's for God's Sake? I know that Bob Harras is working for DC now, but sheesh!

    Next thing you know, there will be pony-tails, leather jackets and God, help us, pouches.

    As long as Dick doesn't get that mullet back

    Personally, I like the new Superman costume. It's a lot better than the vast majority of designs for "modernized Superman costumes" I've seen.

    I don't really hate it, but I don't think it's necessarily any BETTER than it was. It still looks like a guy in blue longjohns to me.
