Superman's Costume Gets A Design Update


Really liking this new tweaked look. Not a complete overhaul like the New 52 brought us, but a few small changes to bring back some elements of the classic look. The briefs aren't making a comeback yet, but I'll take it. 

Most significantly, the signature red boots are back, although in an apparently metallic form to match Superman’s belt, which is now more pronounced and topped off with a shield-shaped gold buckle. The gauntlet-style arms are gone, too, replaced with simple cuffs.
