Some news from the DC Retailer Roadshow:

Quote
Action Comics and Justice League are set in the past, the Green Lantern, Batman and LSH books are all continuing without a reboot. DCU Presents, Green Arrow and Hawkman are picking up where Brightest Day left off. But for everything else, yes, it will be more of a reboot/restart. They are basically keeping the books going that were financially successful for them and restarting everything else.

Of course none of that would explain why he looks younger in the present than he did 80 years ago.  But if whatever made him go away scared him bad enough, it could explain why "modern" Supes is covered neck to toe in armor.

OK, I had a thought about this- the new costume isn't really "Armor," it's just that the entire thing is made out of the shards of the rocket that brought the infant Kal-El to Earth.  No one else would be able to move in it, but Superman can because of his Super-Strength.  He just moves and the metal bends.



Better yet, maybe the new costume is made out of lead shielding in order to protect him from all of the Kryptonite meteors that are raining down on Earth.

Also, no more cases of Clark getting his shirt ripped open by strangers (or Lois) to reveal the super-suit underneath.  The shards of the rocket are sentient and when not needed as a "battle suit" they form themselves into the shape of Clark's lunch box.

Guys, please stop putting for horrible ideas for any DC people who might visit. Isn't this crap bad enough as it is?

How long will this costume last?? I'd give it a year (unless its a "legal" thing)

Its pretty much terrible.

Here's another view that's been making the rounds



Seeing the battle-suit version up against the other costumes like this, I've got to say it looks pretty bad.  I still think that losing the red trunks is an OK move (the idea worked very well in the Ultimate Superman proposal), but the 3D armor, the redesigned S logo, and the go-go boy utility belt -- someone just wasn't thinking.  Keep the outfit skin tight; keep the original boots and the trademarked S logo, lose the belt if you're going to lose the trunks ( la Supreme) -- then it would have been fine.  There is no other possible explanation except for the legal one.  They have to lose the "leotards."  Can't figure out why they're not using the trademarked logo, though.  That's more not thinking.

What a great ad!
I don't totally hate this costume, but neither do I agree with what you say... I think the belt is nessecary. If it was just one shade of blue all the way down, it would look pretty awkward. I don't know if I liked it on Supreme either. It's a little high on this drawing, but I do like that they kept the belt.

Obviously, I agree that Superman's action-suit should be skintight. Armour has no place on a man whose skin is harder than solid steel.
Ultimately, I can live with this design. I only hope The Man of Steel doesn't put Big Blue in a rubber Tim Burton Batman version of this outfit. That would be awful, especially because Superman needs to have a full range of movement- the kind that can only be granted by an invincible Kryptonian fabric surrounded by an armourlike Tactile Telekinetic field. Or alternately, tights.  Tongue  Cheesy
