Superman is getting another new costume tweak that is closer to his original look

2 min read


It has been a weird time to be a certain last son of Krypton lately. Parallel Earths, parental obligations and the usual world-ending threats are all par for the course, but there’s also the added wrinkle of DC Comics tweaking his iconic outfit on an annual basis now. And you thought Superman Blue and Red had a tough time in the wardrobe department.

More of a tweak to his current costume than anything else, this latest revision of the super-threads brings Superman that one step closer to his original outfit, sans the red underwear on the outside. I too used to wear underwear on the outside, but mine were actually white until that one day that my groin ran afoul of a rail in the beachfront skating competition and oh dammit I’m ranting again. Anyway, here’s what Kal-El will look like in April with Superman #20 via


“Superman Black” part one! A “Superman Reborn Aftermath” tie-in! As the smoke clears the Kents are faced with leaving Hamilton to go back to Metropolis, but someone or something doesn’t want them to leave! Batman and Robin discover something is mysteriously wrong with the son of Superman—he’s losing his powers!

Also on the schedule? A plot reveal as to just who the hell that unpowered Clark Kent really is, who has been helping to keep to keep the Man of Steel’s identity a secret in the wake of the Superman Reborn storyline. I’m digging the tweaks here, more so than the outfit that Superman was rocking following the launch of DC Rebirth. It just feels more balanced, now that Superman has a new pair of boots, a proper belt and a lighter tone of blue to signify his ability to inspire.

They’re small, yet major changes to the naked eye on a subtle level. And they make sense, considering that the current Superman happens to be the original big blue boy scout who survived the events of Flashpoint and Convergence to save the day once again. There ain’t nothin’ wrong with a retro look adapted for today!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Out of all of them, the suit in BvS was quite impressive

I followed work model I came across from this website i found online and I am so thrilled that i made so much extra income. It’s newbie friendly a­n­d I’m just so blessed that i discovered it.

  • I really missed those red boots. Without them or a proper belt, the current suit just looked like a onesie.

    The underwears on the inside, that’s what matters most
