Here is the first look at Bruce's new costume from the covers of Batman Inc #1 in the November Solicits. I really like it.

Jesus. What is that on his chest, a spotlight? A napkin holder? Or is he just emulating Iron Man?

Yellow oval = good.
Raised platform = ludicrous.

Re: Batman Inc. The Yellow Oval Is Retunring!

^oh, that was from a storyline in the 90's around the time of the Azreal/Batman storyline. When Bruce was going to retake the mantle that time, the artists came up with a bunch of updated costumes for Batman. The one they used ended up only having very minor changes from the classic costume. They then used all of the other designs in a storyline where Rah's men were impersonating the real Batman and Bruce went around taking them down. (IF I remember correctly)

Lordy that costume is ugly, it would be much better without the piping.

Agreed...and the piping is awful. Non-raised oval...no piping...then it will be good.

What you're describing is body paint, not a costume. In 2010, it's ludicrous to keep designing superheroes costumes as if they were still drawn in the same relatively simplistic style as the 1960's.

Really?

Imagine this costume drawn...no piping and the oval is only slightly raised.

http://bruehoyt.com/superheroes/DC/b...mankeaton1.jpg < That image is better to illustrate the point and an artist could draw something similar.

http://bruehoyt.com/superheroes/DC/b...manbegins1.jpg < This one you could add the oval to and it would look great and I believe an artist wouldn't have a problem illustrating it.

[edit] Maybe like this but illustrated



excuse my horrible photomanip.

Dude it's an universe where magic rings exist and people regularly come back from the dead, the technology required to make costumes without seams is neither here or there.
