New 52 Superman by GavinMichelli New 52 Superman by GavinMichelli
Well, it looks like he's not going away any time soon, so I relented. For the first time ever, I drew the new Superman. *crosses arms* I still don't like it, though. Now get off my lawn, you darned kids!

For those who are curious: this is not a "template". If you alter this in any way and post it as your own without asking my permission or giving me credit in the artist notes, I will come at you like a spider monkey. I'm all jacked up on Mountain Dew.

Wow, I hate the new outfits with a passion but HE looks frighteningly butch.  If I was a criminal and that landed in front of me I'd put down my gun, sit down, cross my ankles, fold my hands in my lap and say, "I'm sorry."

HA! I love the way you put that! To me, Superman should command immediate respect at first look. I mean, he's the leader of the Justice League, right? If guys like Batman and Martian Manhunter take orders from Supes, there must be something about him that sort of exudes strength and power.

I love your shading on this. It looks awesome. I don't hate the New 52 costume, but I'm not a fan either. It just seems like a very unimaginative(boring)redesign. Putting armor on the man of steel is redundant. I do like the overlong sleeves, but that's about it. I've always said that no comic character should be wearing their underwear on the outside of their pants anymore. .....Except for Superman. He just doesn't look right without it. I always reasoned that he's from another planet. Maybe that's the style on Krypton. ......Chip!!

I don't mind him not having his underpants, but I think the lack of yellow hurts the costume. I liked the Earth 2 suit better.

Speaking of Earth 2, one of my all time favorite Superman looks was the Ultraman costume from that JLA: Earth 2 story. I'm really not even sure why. It's very plain, with no boots or short pants. It may just have been the way Frank Quitely drew the character, but it just looked really sharp to me. Superman is one of those characters that is really fun to do redesigns on though.

Oh yeah, I love that one. Actually, I just love the way Frank draws Superman. The art in All-Star was so awesome. As far as character design, though, he has this way of simplifying a costume that I love. He boils them down to their basic shapes in a really cool, retro way.

Absolutely. You hit the nail right on the head.

Hahaha, he may be invulnerable to bullets, but he still uses those guns!
