Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Bat Power Armour

I think the thing I like the most about this image (apart from the return of the Morrison-era proto-Superman costume) is Clark's expression. “No... seriously, what the new costume like?” he seems to be asking, convinced Bruce has just spent a ton of cash on an elaborate wind-up and he ain't impressed. “Lois was coming over tonight and you said this was important!”

But, look... rocket launcher.”

Don't call me for a while, Bruce.”

On pure aesthetics... I don't know. I assume Bruce (or whoever) is all scrunched up in the main torso as no way would human shoulders stretch wide enough to fit the arms. The bunny ears are no more ridiculous than the traditional costume's bunny ears have been at times. Be interesting to see this new Batman inspecting crime scenes, not because I expect the suit to have a huge suite of CSI tech but just to see how he'll fit in the room.

Eh, we'll see how this works out for the inevitable year and a bit before the “proper” Batman is restored and if nothing else the post-Convergence solicits for Detective Comics promise me Renee Montoya so that'll soften the blow.

That really is a remarkably dump looking suit. It doesn't even have Bat Ears!

Bunny or moth ears...maybe.

It's ridicuous. It doesn't look anything like a Bat or Batman. I keep thinking it's the Blue Beetle.

That would actually be a pretty cool Beetle suit, now you mention it.
