  1. While I really like the body of the costume, I’m bothered by the loops connecting the cape to the wrist. It adds a ‘flying squirrel’ aspect to the whole thing that reminds me more of a gimmicky wanna-be superhero. I could see those being a failed experiment in his early career but the Kryptonian royalty look to the rest of it doesn’t say amateur to me.

  2. I like this a lot. It’s bright, it’s iconic and it resolves the absence of red trunks a damn sight better than the film costume. Great work, Kurt!

  3. I like the look of the suit, reminds me of the Superboy one shown briefly in Kingdom Come, but that Storm cape has to go.

  4. I like the stripes down the side and the subtle ‘S’ shield across the body. But I am not a fan of the Storm cape. Great job, Kurt!

    This feels really 70′s to me. I don’t know if it’s too simple or not simple enough. The cape is an interesting ideal. I’ve really grown to love Superman with that shorter cape, but the stripe isn’t quite THERE.
