    If you were in charge of redesigning some characters, describe the changes you would make.



    Ghost Rider (Jhonny Blaze): Same as the films, weapon is a chain with a spike.

    Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch): Jeans, Jean Jacket, etc., weapons are two chains with hooks.

    Wolverine: Cowboy boots, jeans, X-Men shirt and belt, brown leather jacket.

    Batman: Same as Nolan's version, but with a more smooth look with less extra armour chunks.

    Joker: Same as usual, but with the Nolan version's hair and scars.

    I'd cover up power girl's boob window and add some more clothing on the legs and arms

    You... sick monster!


    Anyway, I'd probably change Scarecrow to look more like the TNBA Scarecrow.

    And make a decent and not laughable Two-Face design.

    They did. It looks terrible.

    Not sure what more you'd want on her arms - her old costume had full sleeves and gloves.

    Personally, I'd take new Power Girl and add sleeves but give her back the briefs. The way it is now has way too much plain white and it looks bland as hell. Bare legs would really help break it up.

    But that will contradict my friend's comments about her!

    Doc Ock: Green jumpsuit, dark orange boots, gloves, and visor. Same harness, tranchcoat, and tentecles as Spectacular Ock.

    EDIT:

    Vulture: Same as Spectacular, but with a more traditional colour.

    Scorpion: Same as the game from the first film, only in green.

    Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson look, but with the traditional S.H.I.E.L.D. costume and hair, like in Avengers: Earth's mightiest Heroes.

    Green Goblin: Same as Spectacular, but with a more scaly 'skin' texture

    I still think the best Joker redesign was Arkham Asylum's Joker, who managed to be a happy medium between the classic Joker and Nolan-uber-realistic-stuff.

    Also, Red Skull: Give him a hatless SS uniform permanently [he keeps zig-zagging between full SS-clothing with hat, without hat, stylized SS uniform or completely different uniform], complete with Iron Cross and leather boots. This guy is a Nazi, let him show it off.

    Baron Strucker: full-on Wehrmacht uniform with HYDRA symbols replacing Nazi symbols, no more cheesy HYDRA suit, Wehrmacht fills him much better [even for in-story reasons]. Also keep his red eye of Secret Warriors.

    I'll think of more later.

    BULLSHIT, Ultimate Fury can't match to 616 fury in a hundrend years, don't even dare to insult 616 Fury like that, it's like comparing Squirrel Girl to Batman.

    I'd give the lizard the ability to colour change and have the rhino's skin completely grey, not everywhere except his face. also give the martian manhunter a black shirt, he'd still have the red x and blue cape but I'd still like it if he wore an actual shirt

    Red Hulk: Same as usual, but with a ripped army uniform instead of the usual shorts. And a moustache. Why would Thunderbolt's moustache just go away when he transforms?

    Abomination: The movie version with shorts and the fish-ears.

    Blackheart: The regular comic version, but with the movie version's clothes.

    Scarecrow: Movie mask with a trenchcoat, hat, and a sythe.

    Op's thread in a nutshell: I'd change the source material to match the derivatives.

    Everyone else's reaction: FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

    That would be awesome, the Gatchaman costumes are cool.

    Power Girl:
    -Costume-The boob window stays. Full length sleves and legs, blue gloves and blue thigh high (flat) boots. Have her Kryptonian symbol etched on her golden cape buckle.

    -Appearance-The same bob cut as used in the Amanda Conner run, same curvacious figure but with well defined muscles.

    Supergirl:
    -Costume-No more mini-skirt, she would wear an identical costume to Superman. No high heel boots, but using the flared sleeves from the Loeb design in Superman/Batman.

    Starfire:
    -Costume-Dark purple boots ending mid thigh. Gunmetal armour covering remaining legs and body upto shoulder. Dark purple 'vest' like cover over upper body (think Scorpion from MK) and matching gauntlets.

    I would give superman his yellow belt back because Superman never had a lot of yellow on his costume.

    I'd give DCnU Superman back his classic costume. You don't mess with a classic.

    Baron Zemo-must I really explain why he has to be changed? But just a completely new costume with a red mask and crown and armor that would be red and like either a REALLY dark purple or black
    Hawkeye-Mix between classic and ultimate with that ninja mask with a hood over it.

    I'm...not so sure that's going to happen anytime soon. Especially if the Siegel and Shuster estates make any more headway in their litigation against DC. I know a lot of authorities at DC have insisted otherwise, but IMO there's just a little too much at stake in the lawsuit that corresponds a little too neatly with DC's current efforts to revamp Superman for the lawsuit to have NOT had a hand in it.

    Other than that, I actually haven't minded a lot of the New 52 designs - I honestly don't care whether Wonder Woman wears shorts or pants (though they already went back to the shorts before the first issue came out), and I'm glad that somebody finally did a Supergirl design that doesn't look like jail bait. I will agree, however, that the new Power Girl design sucks, IMO.

    Here's a re-design of Captain Planet I did a couple years back. You can obviously see where I was going with it.
