A handful of upcoming comic book covers have revealed new costumes for both Superman and Wonder Woman. These costumes will debut in June as part of DC’s major post-Convergence relaunch.
Coming off the New 52 redesigns and the one for Wonder Woman shortly before that, this feels like it’s too much, too soon. I’m not opposed to Wonder Woman rocking pants but the whole outfit feels busy, similar to a lot of the initial redesigns for characters when the New 52 began.
On the other hand, Superman looks incredibly… plain. Why take a character, regarded by many as the definition of a superhero, and make him look painfully normal?
