    The two costumes are so, so similar that I can't imagine it being unintentional.

    I know, that's why I said, "original."

    There have been five Kryptonian Nightwings:

    Kal-El, Van-Zee, the Nightwing of legend, Kara Zor-L and Christopher Kent.

    It is likely that Kal-El and Van-Zee were never Nightwing in modern continuity, though.

    Yeah, but there's zero character connection between the two.

    I mean it makes a heck of a lot more sense that Red Robin looks like Batman, right? And the original DOES. Somewhat.

    The rendition of Bart in the Flash costume looks better than the one Wally is in right now too.

    Thanks for posting that Impulse. That costume is a 1000 times better and even opens a small window of hope for even better costumes along the same lines. I was just typing how disappointed I am in Red Robin's look in the Damian thread.

    I don't think he looks anything like Batman, really.

    Mileage my vary.

    But the combination of the featureless hood and the straps crossing his chest and the gold crest where they meet? It's too similar to Dr. Mid-Nite.

    I actually liked all of the designs that they did. Well, except for Raven and Wonder Girl. They didn't seem that great. But Superboy's was AWESOME!

    Yeah. I can understand taking influence from a costume you like, but the RR suit is just TOO similar to Dr Mid-Nite.

    Fair enough it wasn't really a problem at the time of KC, but with the JSA being prominent for 10 years now, I don't think it should have been used again in the first place.

    I also think Aquaman would have looked a lot better had they given him the red and blue scheme he uses now as opposed to Arthur's "classic" colors.


    Cass as Batwoman was also pretty uninspired. Just Bruce's outfit with the mouth sealed shut.
