You gotta be a MAN to wear tights. by jollyjack You gotta be a MAN to wear tights. by jollyjack
Felt like drawing Supes because I heard that DC had ditched that bullsh*t New 52 cozzy and given him back his REAL outfit.
Drawn, naturally, to John Williams being played very loudly....... and this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc1am3…

I prefer the costume without underwear on the outside.

I could picture Supes being about 55 years old in this image -- suits him well.

I like the grey hair you gave him about the ears. It looks distinguished!

That's because he looks like the George Reeves Superman, who was always a little bit older than the young studs we get these days.

Like the little gray you added to his hair. Nice touch.
God, I have not read a superman comic in ages. They don't release any superhero comics here anymore. So it's all import. And there is a lot. So kinda hard to know what to pick up at times ^^;

Rough topic, the shorts on the outside is such a dated look, but the armor was just a terrible direction.

Oh well, still a nice drawing. The grey on teh temples reminds me of the Kingdom Come, version of Superman.

Eh, I personally prefer my heroes without the undies-on-the-outside, but it's a tiny price to pay for Superman going back to what made the character great.

Clark and Lois as parents (of young Jon "Superboy" Kent) are amazingly sweet as well.

I just hope Clark continues wearing the classic duds post #1000.  The only new52 costumes I like are Aquaman's (dynamic underwater-theme knight armor), Supergirl's (powerful, sexy, and alien), and Wally West's.

I love The Flash... no, not in a pervy way, either, although that would be funny as well.

Yeah, the Rebirth series has been pretty decent.

Not any of the Batman stuff, because the Batman crew is apparently off in la-la land compared to the rest of DC, because they have veto power over everybody else, but nobody seems to have veto power of them (read The War of Jokes and Riddles by way of an example), but everything else in Rebirth is cool.

I wish they'd go back to writing the comics like the old stuff, too. Not all of them, mind you. I know plenty of people like the new material. I'd just love for there to be a handful of throwback titles that just let themselves wallow in the four-color silliness of old superhero antics.

Agreed. If there's one thing the Snyder flicks have taught us, it's that ANGST and SUPERMAN doesn't mix.

Batman is angst. He does angst well. Superman should be bright, colorful, cheery, and something that I can share with my kids.
