Superman's Supersuit is so perfect it would be foolish to change it!

Acceptable changes would be playing with the shades of blue, red and yellow. (Teal blue or Blue or Dark Blue, I really don't care) and the size of the S logo. I don't like the tiny ones or the super large ones that take up his whole chest, I think that Curt Swan's version looks best, but it's almost a tradition to change it's size, LOL, so that's not a deal breaker for me.

Any other change is no good. If someone comes up with a new super suit that they think is the bee's knees then give it to a super robot or a superman squad member from Kandor, but keep it away from Kal-El.

Well, SuperMonkey, judging from your avatar, you're okay with reversing the "S" and adding face bandages.  Cheesy

When I first saw that avatar, it looked to me like a cutting from "Superman's New Face".... but I'm not sure why it's around the wrong way.

I'm for keeping the traditional suit, preferably with a large \S/. I wouldn't rule out an alternate uniform, however, much like many sports teams have, to be worn on rare occasions. No gloves, though. Those just wouldn't look right.

I remember that many years ago,the Wizard magazine ask to various artist how they would update the Superman looks,some of the new design were really interesting,expecially the one designed by Darryl Banks,if i or someone else can find this images somewhere and put them here...

Can anyone think of a reason why a change might be a good idea?
