    Default Flash's chin: to strap or not to strap?

    Flash's chin-strap is nearly a decade old. Should it continue, or should Flash return to his traditional, unstrapped look?

    I’m definitely pro Flash suit chin strap. Especially in live action. They tried to go with a more “classic” look for the costume in season 5 and it looked horrible.

    The chin strap gives the costume a more streamlined look. On a different topic, the excessive lines on the suit need to go!

    His is the only costume that was improved by the New 52. Keep it.

    Aside from all the unnecessary lines, but compared to other New 52 redesigns I think Flash got off light.

    The best Flash costume is the TV show which we wouldn't have without the New 52 suit. So I'm willing to overlook the stupid lines. And compared to the others, the lines were easy to overlook.

    I voted no, but as elements of a Flash costume go, it ‘s not a big deal. It can’t make it break a good Flash design.
    ConnEr Kent flies. ConnOr Hawke has a bow. Batman's kid is named DamiAn.

    To do spoiler tags, use [ spoil ] at the start of the sentence and [ /spoil ] at the end, without the spaces. You're welcome!

    Definitely live action. Less so in the comics, but I'm okay with it there, too.

    I voted keep it but I ultimately never understood why it was such an issue for some people. I feel like The Flash tends to attract the oddest costume debates.

    I like both looks, but slightly prefer the chinstrap.

    It took me years to realize he even had a costume change considering how minor it was to the other New 52 ones.

    I voted to keep it.
    Especially for the TV show.
    Barry can keep it in the books too, and it can be another point of difference with Wally's Flash outfit.

    I'll try being nicer if you try being smarter.
