I suppose the only thing you could say for Spiderman, Superman et all is that they only had to make one outfit (although they probably made plenty of spares) as opposed the the hundreds they made this time out. I've no idea the costs involved in creating a delta shield-esqe fabric off the shelf. I assume its a relatively simple process but I honestly have no idea.
I think we need a fabric expert. Do we have a fabric expert on the board? There's never a fabric expert when you need one.
I can't believe I'm discussing fabric.
