    Default Superman Outfit - Favorite Fan-Made Redesigns 2

    As the old thread is long dead, I've created this sort of quasi-sequel to it.

    What are your faves?

    I feel it's important that Superman's costume is kept streamlined, simple and with not a whole lot of complex detailing.

    This one below is cool. There's another one that I like but I can't find it right now.

    There are a number of good designs, but I do think these are my favorite. Something about the "rolled-up sleeve" look that conveys "can-do" power nicely.

    There is also this redesign, which takes the Bio-armor of Nu52 Superman and redoes it. by making it more of a balance between armor plates and mesh.

    Oh man, this is REALLY close to what I envision in my head for a New 52-inspired "Ultimate" Superman look. Subtle New 52 (no high collar, a few seams but not too many), and the Fleischer S. Only things I envision differently is a less DCEU inspired belt, rather a full red belt that connects to the buckle, and I'd put back the red trim on the sleeves. Maybe also on the collar as well.

    Meanwhile something like this is what I would imagine him wearing in the beginning before he finds the actual Kryptonian suit per a strongly Morrison-inspired, if not verbatim, origin. Just also utilizing the Fleischer shield. I like how its slightly more "costumy" than just plain t-shirt and jeans, but still a home-made, rudimentary incarnation.

    My laughable Paint 3D edit (I like yellow outlining around this type of S).

    Dan Mora is such a great artist. Would love to see him on a Superman story down the line.

    Here are some that I liked:

    The first is by Rob Nix

    and this one is by Mista-M.

    The only substantial redesign where I've really gone "oh yeah, that could WORK" is this, by "Robobotnik":



    Nice texture, the seams are understated and go with the slightly reworked boots, the belt is chunky enough to make up for the missing trunks without being overbearing, and said belt’s old school look, evoking a sort of classic jet-age feel, perfectly offsets the regal aesthetic of the cape being attached to the shield.

    Also, I like that first shot at it by Mista-M - the stripes on the wrists being red make them part of a whole with the red trunks, really hooking it into the larger design of the suit, which I feel would maybe get people to tone down their complaints about it. Put the buckle on that belt and we're golden.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Reminds me of Nicola Scott's EARTH 2 design.

    I'm a fan of a big S, but not one so big it actually is part of the collar, nor the "cape attaches to the shield" aesthetic. For me that will always be Eradicator's look.
