Which pretty much disqualifies you from a conversation about comic books. If you're ignorant as to the subject matter, you are by definition incapable of having an informed opinion. I don't opine about rap music.

In the couple of initial nu52 comics I read, the boots and belt had a more mechanical look. The belt had some big bolt looking things where those little square indents are in the previous image and the boots had more of a heavy armor look.

It really doesn't. All it does is make you a prudish reactionary.

I like this better. It looks more streamlined, form fitting like the old costume.

Not that anyone asked you, but explain that, without being insulting this time, if you can strain yourself to be cordial.
He is ignorant of a major part of comics history. Being uninformed does make one's opinions on a subject less valid. How does that make me a prude or a reactionary?
I don't think those words mean what you think they mean.

Nah, he's some stuffy old professor dude. No idea what he has to do with Marvel's Flash.

There's been a handful of men in the DCU who've been The Flash.

Flash is that guy who went to Mongo. Or he might that guy who bullied Peter Parker in High School.

If there's any change at all there it's a minor one - every feature of the outfit is identical to Lee's initial drawings except that the shield doesn't look so three-dimensional in this drawing.

It's simply a particular artist's style of portraying the costume.

The red Speedo is no more coming back than is the 1950s version of Batman's costume or the original version of Iron Man's armor. People can tell themselves whatever they want, but that's just the truth.

The appropriate response, of course, is "Who gives a fuck about Barry Allen?"

I'll stick to straightforward.

Not really. There's nothing wrong with thinking of Wally West when you think of the Flash.

How does that make me a prude or a reactionary
A prude for dismissing him entirely just because he doesn't think of Barry Allen when he thinks of the Flash, and a reactionary for typical reactionary reasons: Disgust with the present.

He also missed the point of that comment which was to point out that to the people who had gotten into reading comics in the two decades between Crisis on Infinite Earths and Final Crisis Barry Allen is some stranger displacing their Flash.

So instead of restoring status quo they were in fact changing things.
