    It looks like he has an industrial ventilation grate on his chest. That is not fine.

    I agree that the symbol could be a bit clearer.

    It's like the Justice Legion A Superman's Symbol from DC 1 Million.

    It's a symbol for Superman that transcends language.

    I like it.

    I feel like that one should have had goggles.

    He doesnt even have eyes, why would he need goggles?

    The flight jacket seems kind of random unless you take the pilot motif further, is my point.

    I'll be amazed if Ming Doyle's version doesn't take the top prize.

    I don't think I would have done any better but I wish I'd had time to participate.

    Agreed. It's one of the few "super hero" costumes in the finalists. Most ended up being too military or alien looking for a character like Superman. He also gets extra points for making a Superboy and girl version.

    i really like Ming's design. (I think ming is female.) It seems a bit too complicated for monthly comics though. There is something weird with collar and cape area too.

    There are some great designs in the finals that would be better for other characters.

    Superman really needs to have some anti-magic lead plates on hand at all times.

    I really like the full image that goes along with this one. It's like if Superman had been published by America's Best Comics.

    I'm all about this one. If they just didn't have the backpack and the yellow spark on his head it would be better. I think it is great because it is...and it looks outer space like. It is a great re-imaging though I could see it being considered better for an alternate universe type of story.

    I like this one oddly enough... and the bomberman jacket one and I hate the art so much in the "superman family" one that I can't really like the costume. That art hurts my eyes.

    ming doyle's work kind of reminds me of paul pope's, and i really like her artwork a lot. i am not really sure how i feel about the costume though. i think it would be better without the cape.

    i don't really like the "planet supes" costume at all. It has some neat elements to it, but those neat elements clash. The armored arms and shoulders make no sense with the pajama bottoms, for example.

    I do, however, like the idea of Superman finding himself on an alien planet and becoming its savior, just like Hulk.

    is the best

    this got first place. Second place was the "Golden Age" Superman with the jacket. Third was the Superboyman

    I think I would like the design a lot more if the art didn't make my eyes drop out of their sockets. Judged purely on the design of the outfit I agree with this one winning, but man that's a nasty art style.

    yeah, the art style makes it look a lot busier than it actually is

    The proportions seem to be really off, but I really liked this costume.

    Is it just me, or would ditching the Cape and swapping the S for a 4 pretty much make that the Ultimate FF uniform?

    Yeah, I like that costume a lot, but the drawing is terrible. It does need more yellow, though.
