If you're a DC fan like me, then you probably love all the DC characters most iconic costumes! And if you're like me, then you probably DON'T like what the New 52 has done to those costumes. Granted, some look kinda cool, but most are unnecessary, ugly, character-destroying and just plain wrong! D:<
While I understand characters change as time goes on, that includes their appearance, there are ways to alter looks to make them a little more modern, but still tasteful and respectful to their true and traditional looks that we've all known and love.
This is what you see here.
For Batman, I mixed, of course, his DCAU, Arkham series, and even a little bit of his Young Justice appearance into this design! His overall appearance is more akin to his DCAU look, which I like best, but I did want to give him a more armor-ized look, while not delving too far into that Batman movie armor, where the man under the mask can barely move his body, let alone turn his neck without shifting his whole body as well.
Tell me what you think!
