Every time I see a new picture of it, it's got a different belt.

the costume would almost work if they got rid of the high collar (!?!) and put some red trunks on him to break up all the blue

and probably try not to make it look like its metal. that would help.

Guess they can't figure out the belt, either.  Since it serves no practical purpose (there's no pants to hold up, and he doesn't carry weapons), they might as well just lose it.

I have to say I do like the face on this one, anyway.  At least he doesn't look like Justin Bieber's ugly brother.

This is the first time I noticed how lackluster Diana's outfit is.  She seems to have gotten the worst of this whole deal.  I notice that in case anyone failed to notice how much like a teddy her outfit's getting to be, they've added a sexy choker to boot.  I haven't seen a rear view yet, but I'm betting there's a bunny tail.

I don't have too much of a problem with Superman's new costume.
I liked the old one better, but you know, it's not awful. I don't mind the collar. The amazing changing super-belt is a little irritating, but oh well.

Other people's outfits are bugging me more.

Wonder Woman's increasingly absurd shirt and choker, Flash's shoulder pads, and especially Cyborg. Does he have like a robo-hood on the back of his chest or something? Why? I don't like Cyborg's outfit much at all.

Since less than half of the heroes in the shot are able to fly (so far as we know) what are the others standing on that allows them to pose in that diagonal position?

ya Supes costume isn't terrible (obviously the older one is just better , jim lee isn't a designer)
I dislike the armor-look of the suit but I figure they'd drop those excessive lines at some point

I don't like "young" superman though. When supes was middleaged little kids would read him, now that readers are middleaged we need a young superman???

ALSO ...Wonder Woman wears MORE clothes NOW then she did in the 40s!?!?!?! by this point she should be running around nude!!! (not that I want that mind you)

The picture was accidentally posted upside-down.  They're all diving into the crapper.

And another one.  I found this picture at the "DC Comics Relaunch Support Group" on Facebook and rotated it to give a better view of the outfits.  This is the cover to Justice League #2:

Looks like that indestructible cape that Grant Morrison mentioned didn't last long.
