    I love the OG Robin costume, I think it's iconic. I can understand people who think it hasn't aged well though. I think if it remained Dicks Robin suit and the others got more modern suits, I could live with that.

    I really don't get it, there was such a fuss kicked up over appropriate Superhero wear, why are we trying to cling to the old Robin suit?

    I'm sure someone has already said this, but...I'd like to see Dick still wearing the original suit.

    The old Robin suit is a part of the character's history. Some feel there's no need to change it in flashbacks and completely remove it from past stories.

    You will never hear me complain about appropriate superhero wear.

    Super Heroes should look like they're Superheroes. Let them wear tights, capes, trunks, pirate boots, domino masks, spandex, and all that stuff.
    Why would you want your heroes to look like some tactile special ops unit or extreme sports team?

    100% agree! The more outlandish and 'unique' the better.

    I think if anything it can be a costume that he debuts in and wears for like 1 or weeks before Batman finally steps in and is like .....we need to change it up a little and he transitions into tights.

    Thing is ally you basically had to do, would be to add thighs to the design and it would look fine (at least for flashbacks). You could even keep the "scaly underpants".
