Wow Shazam has possibly the best look in the game for me

Yeah that's what it seems like.

Soopa: seriously why does my opinion irritate you enough to warrant a post that long?
God forbid someone disagree with you. You really showed me who's boss.

I said sleek "considering". Every character is armored to a degree, and they've clearly added more armor to those that aren't bulletproof to visually make sense out of their strength levels and how much they'd need the armor

Flash does have a lot of armor, and it makes sense considering the fiction and the design ethos of this team. This armor is clearly very light weight an thin, and I'm sorry you don't like it

Go ahead and reply if you want but I feel no need to read your response as I feel you were unnecessarily antagonistic for my voicing my opinion.
Take care.

In no way did I insult you for you opinion I simply expanded upon my views in response to two people calling it sleek when I really don't understand how one could see it as sleek. I then proceeded to offer how I think it could have been done better. I even mentioned parts that I liked like the yellow lining accents.

If that really set you off and you get THAT sensitive on the internet you clearly don't belong here. Hell, if you cry like this every time somebody doesn't agree with you I'm not sure how you function in life at all.

Nowhere in my post did I actually insult you or talk down to you for your opinion I simply said I'm not sure if we're thinking of "sleek" in the same way because I'm unsure how anyone could call that sleek. I attacked the costume so unless you're the person at NR who designed the costume I think you need to take a chill pill.

sleek (slk)
adj. sleekˇer, sleekˇest
1. Smooth and lustrous as if polished; glossy:
2. Well-groomed and neatly tailored.
3. Healthy or well-fed; thriving.
4. Polished or smooth in manner, especially in an unctuous way; slick.


@Robot_Soopa
What exactly is not sleek about Flash's costume? OK it's not very polished or glossy, other than that it is very sleek. Also if you look at the picture YOU posted you will see it is very functional. None of the joints are hindered in any way. It looks light weight, as well as looking more like Kevlar than plate armor.

It's not sleek since it's got **** jutting out everywhere like a Michael Bay Transformer.

Flash's comic costume is one coherently designed piece. This is... a bunch of red scrap metal being pasted on.


Anyway, Flash does look like crap, and I dislike Cap Marvel's look in this. He's too angry and serious.

Deathstroke actually makes the armour work though, so that's something.

Point out the "****jutting out everywhere" The only thing I see "jutting" out is the lightning bolts on the ears.

I actually thought they did a really good job on Joker. He looks like Cesar Romero Joker. I think all of them are good but if i had to pick a least favourite, i would pick Batman purely because of the chest thing

1. Shoulder pads jut out from the rest of the armor.
2. Another layer juts out from the already jutting shoulder pads.
3. There's a neck piece under the shoulder pads but ON TOP of the regular suit.
4. The mask is layered on top of the head piece making the face stick out even more and making it look more like a helmet.
5. Chest piece is lifted and jutting out from the rest of the suit.
6. There's actually another layer UNDER the chest piece jutting out from the suit so you've got two layers popping out of the suit on top of each other at the chest area.
7. He has a layer of armor around his wrist.
8. On the side of his wrist and on top of the wrist armor is another layer of armor reaching to the elbow.
9. The hand has its own layer of armor.
10. Every finger has layers of armor, in every point that each finger bends a layer stops and a new piece starts.
11. Whatever is going on down there with the boots has the main layer.
a. a layer on top of that at the top of the knee
b. two side layers on top of the main layer
c. 3 layers looking like some kind of mail stacked on top of the feet
d. The back heel has two layers stacked on top of each other
e. The toe has it's own layer ending up looking like some kind of steel toe boot
f. If you can believe it there's still another layer underneath between the heel and toe.

That was just covering the issues with pieces sticking out everywhere. I haven't even gotten into the pointless indentations, edges and lines everywhere.

Some examples:

Side of Chest

Neck Indentations
http://puu.sh/21COO

Ridiculous amount of indentations and raised pieces on the legs
http://puu.sh/21CPU

Curving and indentations end up making the fingers look like talons or something. I mean look at the part between his index finger and thumb. It looks like an air vent.

I shouldn't need to point out the problems with the chest. It just screams of overdesigning and trying to show off.
http://puu.sh/21CTS

Mask makes it look like his brain is exposed and was replaced by a basketball.

I could keep going but I feel I've made my point clear. I'm sure someone will reprimand me for nitpicking but no. It passed nitpicking a long time ago. Nitpicking would be saying I don't like the color red they chose (which I don't, it looks like Flash left his costume in the sun and it warped the color). But there's really no way you can consider this costume sleek. You can still like it and I won't hold it against anyone. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But I think it's a trainwreck and not what a superhero should look like.

This is Liefeld levels of overdesigned trash.
