    Post Superman's Red Trunks

    Is Red Trunks permanently Back? Currently, I'm seeing Superman with the trunks everywhere in the comics.

    No such thing as "permanently" in comics.

    But yeah, pretty much.

    At the end of the day, I prefer the red trunks.
    Maybe because that is how I saw him for most of my life
    or maybe when I see him in them I realize how foolish he looks
    how absurd and cartoonish ............. like something out of a comic book .

    Despite I said that I donīt hate the trunks. I only say that they can use one excuse for use Superman again without trunks during certain time.

    They can replace Clark temporarily for another character as Superman in the earth and this character donīt use trunks.

    I never had a problem with the trunks before they got rid of them. I just feel like since 2011, in many non-callback stories they became a symbol of the attitude that "he's not really Superman without the trunks" and I came to hate them.

    If that sentiment could go away, if they could stay gone and occasionally come back for nostalgia without the sense that the writer or artist is bitter that he doesn't wear them all the time, that'd be great.

    I mean heck, in Action # 1000, most of their appearances looked great. Natural. And then Jim Lee drew them and I just went "wow, he should never draw that costume again, it just looks really stupid." So I think Superman's costume should just be whatever thing the artist is best at drawing mixed with whatever the writer wants for the story, and without any lampshading.

    The thing is, now that its been done, now that the particular taboo was broken, its going to be much easier in the future to do it again. And I wholly expect it to. Superman is like every other character. To use a specific example, look at Spider-Man. His classic is his classic, its always going to be there. But there are times that he changes things up. I could easily see this happening for Superman now, depending on the writer and artist, and the whims at the particular time. Its not taboo anymore. The classic look will always be around, but it'll be much easier to trade out once in a while now.

    I'm hoping for a lot more and a lot longer than once in a while. Don't like the trunks in a modern setting.

    I'd be perfectly okay with this development, and honestly it can't happen soon enough for me.

    I'm on the anti-Trunks camp, as I despise the idea that he's not Superman without them on (just like Adekis).

    Superman's look is perfect, no need for a change. I'm sure they'll try again someday, and as long as they come up with better designs than the ones they've given us for the last few years, I'll be open to it. The MoS and Reborn costumes both came pretty close.

    Hopefully. I think Superman looks so much better with the trunks and they are an iconic part of his look.

    The red trunk help the costume from not looking so monochromatic. It gives a break in colors from the top to the bottom along with the red boots.
