One thing I like from this Rebirth era is that they might get rid of the shorts but they’re present one way or another here. Whether they show flashbacks or (I loved D.Jurgen’s way) when Jon asks Clark about his old suit and the reason behind the change. Also it leaves option for a comeback of the iconic version although it won’t be son or maybe never. It’s nice not to forget history. Edit: Soon. I meant soon not “son”. There’s only 1 reason for me to quit using Windows 10: ITS FUCKING AND UNINSTALLABLE AUTOMATIC SPELLCHECKER. Sorry for the… Read more »

There’s one thing I always thought was a little odd with Superman’s costume: The boots. He is suposed to wear tights because they’re protected by his aura but the boots are too thick stay into its protection. Everytime he moves at supersonic speeds they should end completely burnt but they aren’t. And of course he can’t wear them under his Clark suit, they just wouldn’t fit into his shoes. Why not use tights instead of boots? He could wear them even inside his socks (and of course his shoes). They could be made with a harder fabric than his tights… Read more »

The technical reason is to paraphrase MST3K ‘ S theme song “..if you’re wondering where his boots fit in and other science facts, just repeat to yourself it’s a comic book and I should really just relax.” Though I will say I wonder if the whole nanotechnology idea would have been slightly more palatable if the suit it created hadn’t been such a severe redesign. But that would just be a way of trying to rationalize stuff like the running alleyway change in Superman II and how bad do we need that explained really? at the end of the day… Read more »

Well, characters like Spiderman don’t use boots, they use socks for this reason.
One thing is not to rationalize their special habilities but for example they did it with Supes’ cape (pre N52 version). It got constantly destroyed because of that reason: it was out of his aura protection. He uses tights because normal clothes also stay out of it. His boots should be the same with the added problem: no way to hide them under his Clark costumes.

You should be ashamed to use the old movies as good examples…comment image

I’m not going to be ashamed of that at all because I used that as an example of the basic idea that is still seen in various Superman media today of Clark changing instantiously (presumably via super-speed) without being shown having to put on his boots or attach his cape or even re-comb his hair nor being show disposing of his street clothes.

The “ashamed” thing was a joke.
In live action movies/series the actors need to use boots for a good reason: there is a lot of action and using just tights on their feet there is a serious probability to get hurt.

Hopefully they keep this suit for a while. It’s pretty much ideal for the modern era while still evoking the past.
