Superman Redesign by EmeraldBeacon Superman Redesign by EmeraldBeacon
Given some of DC Comics redesigns of their core characters, I thought I'd give some thought as to a new look for some familiar characters...

Superman takes some of his cues from the Jim Lee design, in the high collar and lack of 'undies'. I don't like the idea of Superman wearing armor, but I do think his uniform should look more 'alien', like a Kryptonian space suit of sorts. The high collar becomes a sort of half-cowl, extending up his neck. The chest symbol is more of a sculpted design. The secondary blue color and red trim was just there to break up the solid blocks of color in his uniform, giving it more of a "unitard" or "jumpsuit" kind of feel.

More to come, if people ask...

This design is very similar to the design of The Eradicator.

Look, I'm going to be honest. It's a very nice drawing, but it just doesn't feel like "Superman" to me. It takes what I don't like about the New52 costume and just makes it worse. Now, I'm not saying that it's a bad suit. Replace the \S/ shield with something else, and you could have a great superhero. I'm just saying that it doesn't feel right for Superman/

Hi, I really love your re design! mind if I use it for a character in a fan fiction I'm planning on writing? and if it not to much to ask could you draw another redesign with the blue background of his suit grey, or a darker blue? (darker than the blue running along the sides), and the s shield black with a red inside? I understand if this is too much but I would really love if you could help me out, I would give you all rights to it, give you huge thanks, and tell people to come check out your stuff when I write the piece, (the piece would be on and if you wanted to check out my work my username there is GirlAtThePiano.)

You submitted this to :icondcnu: and it's technically a redesign so would you like me to move it over to our contest folder?

Very cool. And I do agree with some others, it DOES look very much like a LOSH outfit.

Looks like something he would wear during his time on the Legion of Superheroes.
