DC Costumes: Re-envisioned

Posted on Jul 28, 2011 by in Features | 5 comments


It’s contest time here at Comic Booked! After seeing DC’s New 52 panel at San Diego Comic Con, I had an idea… an idea that could spread across the comic book community and unite DC fans both new and old. I said to myself, “What if we had a contest where the fans got to create their own reboot suits?” This could either make fans feel worse about the new costumes, or leave them feeling grateful for Jim Lee’s designs. But most of all, it would be a lot of fun to see what sort of designs our readers can come up with.

Onto the contest rules! We are going to progress through  the contest one hero at a time, and first on the list is my personal favorite, The Man of Steel himself… Superman!

Contest Rules and Guidelines

1. Send your name, picture and address to by August 15th
2. The picture must be your own work.
3. The picture must be colored.
4. Don’t worry if you aren’t a very good artist. This contest is all about the costume designs!
5. The winner gets a San Diego Comic Con 2011 Prize Pack. This includes comics, posters, bags, and toys that were given out at SDCC. Definitely an awesome prize!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I submit multiple entries?

Can I send you a picture of a new Batman suit instead?
Not yet! Wait for the Batman contest.

Will DC use my suit in the reboot?
Are you Jim Lee?

Can you tell me exactly what’s in the Prize Pack?
No way dude, it’s a surprise!

So send in your design and spread this link around!


  1. I'm going to enter mine for fun, but it will not win. 🙂

  2. Wicked cool contest!

  3. Thanks James! I hope you enter.

  4. It's too white-washing, Superman does NOT wear knee pads, he is not suppose to wear them, he's the man of steel, he doesn't need them! I hate the collar, it's a sign of arrogance and the suit looks a little too armor-like!

    Wonder Woman is NOT suppose to wear black or wear black pants or any pants! It doesn't look right with her outfit.

    She need back her blue shorts with patriotic stars!

    Dan Didio's to blame for this. I don't care what other people say. Some thing are best left alone!
