I like it! But I think Wonderwoman should have either the shorts or the skirt, not both.

I like it a lot. They should have gone with something like this for Superman's look in the new movie. Much classier.

Thanks! I guess the new movie is going more for the "bad ass, strong" angle that they've been pushing the man of steel into these past years, which is a bummer.

Well, Superman kind of reminds me of Mon-El here, he doesn't look bad. And yess! I strongly believe that Aquaman should be barefoot. Wonder Woman looks awesome in her suit, I really wish she used that instead of the weird pants.

The only thing that struck me in his design was that it will be perfect for action figures!

Yours are more iconic.

HA HA!! People are REALLY hating these redsigns no matter who draws them. I do agree with the sandard of making the belt yellow on Superman.

yeah, i feel like the yellow balances superman a bit more than that red belt.

Way to keep it classy; the man of steel took a bit of a beating. That said, I'm a fan of your re-designs, and like many, prefer them to what DCnU is rolling out.

Seems like there was some bruised egos related to the 40 year old comment, but I know what you mean... Jim Lee has an incredibly 90's aesthetic. You ask him to design something; it is going to look like it's from the 90's, shoulder pads and all.

I also agree with your follow up comment, if Mikey Migs re-designed the whole lot, I think I'd go bankrupt this September.

yeah, i dunno if you saw this but I think Lady Gaga made an open call to artists to design crazy outfits for her, and Jim Lee decided to do a design. He basically made her into witchblade. He is basically a product of his time and should be appreciated as such, not given the keys to design a whole new one.

looks awesome, and aquaman looks better now, Idk to me in the previous one I believe the first you made his pants were kind of way high or maybe was the (im going to call it belt) thing that made it look like it was reaching for his neck

Yes! Finally someone who remembers Wonder Woman was from a tribe of Amazon warriors...
It's always annoyed me that no one gave her something functional, always opting for the costume that showed off her ass rather than showing us what a capable strong woman she is, not to mention that she is actually dressed for practical fighting.

Really wish these redesigns where the one's DC where implementing, they feel so much more alive and functional. Though I would have probably had supes's cape longer, and perhaps made the logo bigger, but still a great twist on the traditional designs.

yes, many people have gripes with my take on superman. I think the consensus was that you just can't touch superman.

thanks for the insight and kind words!

I was actually trying to write about that the other day. If anything, his look should be subject to review. While he's the flagstone character he should at the very least be able to get refreshed to help the character look and feel more modern. Nearly every character in the DC verse has had a new costume now and again, more so if they are a legacy hero like Blue Beetle. The problem is with the look of superman is that it's almost too classic. It tries to firmly live in a wonder age of old style comics. While I can understand DC stance on keeping him white as the driven snow and the symbol of wholesome comics, it feels like they are also refusing to accept change.

(That and I have never liked the classic superman costume. To me it has always looked goofy to me.)

Personally I like your variant over the newer version as its far bolder and takes a few steps. It also looks and feels a little alien to our own design sense. Something that a feel should have been more inline with the character's origin visual feel.

Haha good job! I see the redesign you did previously for Aquaman.
Not such a big fan of the Superman redesign. Feels abit peasant like.
But I quite like Wonder Woman.

Agreed. The best superhero costumes should be simple enough that a seven year old could recreate them with a couple crayons.
