Hi!

With Action Comics 1000 and his 80th year anniversary, my feelings about his classic costume resurfaced since Brian Michael Bendis and DC Comics returned the character to that goofy red trunks look to celebrate his milestone. So i asked a deviant named umbatman to redesign a tasteful and cool Superman costume that reflects the times yet keeps the core essence of the character intact and he came up with not just one but five cool looking designs and that was impressive, considering he's not a big fan of Superman.

Let's just hope that DC will change their mind and POV and move the character and his mythology forward with the times. That goofy classic costume design only reinforces the notion to Marvel fans and non comicbook people that DC is the home of "Your grandparent's superheroes" and why some people find Marvel characters more cooler i think. They have this thinking that superheroes wearing trunks over pants is goofy and dated and not cool and yeah i can totally agree. From a design standpoint, it's impractical and a fashion eyesore. So i hope that to my deviant followers who are fans of the character that you don't take this redesign attempt as an affront but rather as a way to evolve the character with love and care. 

Any worthwhile concept and IP has to move with the times to remain relevant and not be forgotten. Adapt or perish. That's a fact of life. If Superman's contemporaries like Captain America and Wonder Woman have gained renewed popularity and acceptance thru various media like movies, cartoons and games and have moved with the times, then why can't the very first superhero yes? I think it's a disservice to the character if this attitude of ICONIC REVERENCE hampers in the way of much needed character development and evolution to the character just because he has worn that classic costume for so long, that the DC creatives don't want to progress the character for fear of backlash from fanboy purists. Because in their minds they think that it's "sacrilegious" to tamper with his design, never mind that it's goofy and dated. And fanboys come up with the stupid excuse of "Real men wear trunks". Oh really? Why don't you try doing what you've just said and tell me if it doesn't feel silly and embarrassing?!" It's this narrow and closed off mindset that irks me and will be the death of characters like Superman.

Anyways, please do check out umbatman's DA page and spread the Superman design post to your fellow deviants and friends. He will greatly appreciate all that support and hopefully this will get DC's attention. If not, at least we've tried and that's all anyone can do.

Megatron (Ultima)
This is Megatron's final form after Vanquish Prime (The Fallen) was defeated. You could look at this as him being freed from the Galvatron reformatting that he got and reverting back to his old form, only more meaner and tougher. I decided to go with rendering him green because of his vehicle mode and i was inspired by the 80's Marvel comics Transformers and a Megatron toy with that same color scheme. Vehicle mode is the M1A2 Abrams battle tank.

Optimus Prime (Primera)
This is Optimus Prime's reawakened form after his battle with Megatron. I chose this specific International truck because i wanted to go with a trailer truck that is not a flat front and i liked the front grill of this particular truck and am a big fan of M.A.S.K.'s Rhino truck so there you go.

Windcharger
My take on this rather interesting character. He's still reckless and impulsive as he was in Generation One. I just changed his head design a bit and gave him a shoulder cannon and a handgun that generates wind blasts to fit with his name and personality. Vehicle mode is the LEXUS LC 500.

Rodimus Prime (Convoy)
“Arise Rodimus Prime”

I want to fulfill the potential and promise of those very words that Optimus Prime said to Hot Rod when he was able to unlock the Autobot Matrix Of Leadership and so here we are.

This is my version of Rodimus Prime and how i think he should look as a PRIME.

Now i know that most of you still see him as Hot Rod and in Rodimus Prime mode, as a hot rod Pontiac Firebird with a camper wagon trailer mash up but i'd like to think that he could be made to look cool and badass, the way Takara and Hasbro intended the character to be. His exhaust pipes can shoot energy blasts even in vehicle mode and i gave him a better handgun. He looks slightly bigger and heavier but you can still see that he's Hot Rod even if he's now a PRIME.

His vehicle mode is the Navistar International Prostar trailer truck. Enjoy!

Here's a look at Hot Rod: frederickofolympus.deviantart.… and here's Galvatron, his rival: frederickofolympus.deviantart.…
