well that's the thing... It sort of reminds me of the character in general...almost like this is an alternate design for him rather than supes... it just seems like it would fit hyperions character better.
I think Supes and every hero with speedos on the outside of their uniform needs a revamp.
This design polarizes people, either they really love it or they hate it.
IMO I think it sticks pretty close to the original just adding pants and hyper designed pockets on the side while darkening both the red and blue. The yellow piping is there to breakup the dark colors that would become neutral in low light.
I dunno it just made sense to me.
People get attached to the original designs, It's a hard thing to redo something that's burned into people's skulls. I guess thta's what makes it fun for me.
Oh I agree on the perspective. I mean you can check out my supes redesign too. Its the most recent thing on my gallery actually.
I think it's just something about the cape position and gold piping that strike me more as a hyperion look. They look sort of like hey were inspired from a portrayal of a greco roman deity... and thats kind of something that makes me think of hyperion. More of the above humanity outlook... clark strikes me as a combo of alien and humble farmboy, despite being essentially perfect.
