Before I say anything, I just want to say that i like it and that for me it works.  It’s not a bad costume, it’s different and will take some getting used to but despite that, i like it.  It’s not like the Wonder Woman crap they keep doing.  Yes, readers, i will never drop it.  Sorry if it’s beginning to annoy you.

Superman will go get a new look in the 21st century reboot of “Action Comics,” DC Comics said Friday.

According to the LA Times, the long-running comic series will restart at No. 1 in September , with Scottish writer Grant Morrison and artist Ralph “Rags” Morales at the helm.

One of the most notable changes to the original comics so far is Superman’s costume. Although the Man of Steel still sports a skin-tight blue suit and his iconic red cape on the new cover, he no longer has the added protection of the Speedo-like red trunks he’s worn since the first issue of “Action Comics,” published in June 1938. His belt is also changing color from yellow to red.

In addition to the Superman franchise, DC Comics also plans to relaunch other titles in the DC Universe, which includes superheroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern. New characters, stories and, of course, costumes will be introduced across the board.
