zarberg: I thought Edna was against capes, not underwear ...

That's why the headline says she doesn't approve, I'm guessing.

I guess I never had a problem with the cheesiness of Sups outfit. I mean, it's presumably homemade, right? It's not like he would be able to have it custom made for him, not to mention any replacement suits from the wear and tear it likely takes, without raising some suspicions about his identity, right? And for all his other talents and powers, I don't think "super tailoring skill" is one of them. Even if his mother was constantly stitching together customer suits for him, I doubt it would be out of woven Kevlar or hardened leather. So having a kind of cheesy spandex thing in bold primary colors doesn't bother me. He could pass off the purchase of materials as a fan boy making a cosplay entry or something. Just fly to a different Joanne's Fabric and pay in cash, no me is the wiser.

But this suit? All sculpted and vaguely armored... for some reason I can't fathom... It looks like something that Bruce Wayne would have to special order and hide under a million expense reports to purchase. Not exactly something a guy who's income is that of a newspaper reporter (not top notch pay these days) and possessing a moral code preventing him from just swiping materials or the suit itself, even for the greater good.

If you wanted to make a new, "realistic" super-suit that a guy like him is likely to put together, a pair of BDUs and a T-shirt would likely be what he would do. He is a Kansas farm boy, after all.

/thought way too much about this for an allegedly grown man
