I Hate the Bat-suit

Am I the only person who thinks the Bat-suit looks stupid? It looks so incredibly old-fashioned. And if you think about it, it would be totally ineffective.

Having colors like light gray, and yellow on a suit that you're going to wear while lurking in the shadows seems a bit counter productive. With a suit that's all black like the one in 'Batman Begins' makes a whole lot more sense. Thoughts?

Well yeah, it might seem goofy now, but like you said, the newer one is cool so who cares?

Right, but that's not the one you see in the comics.

I rather not have Batman's outfit stay exclusively one color like it is in Batman Begins. I like the variety of outfits he has. And really, I could find many more comic book characters with way more ridiculous outfits that aren't very suitable for being stealthy.

I like it still, despite being old fashioned.

Batman tends to wrap his black cloak around him when he is skulking about like the vigilante ninja bat that he is. But the comic book style of his costume looks badass and the movie ones while cool are too dark and have little details because of this.

Batman's always been stupid and his suit is one of the main reasons for it. The ears look so silly.

1.  Never knock on Batman's suit and then post a Jim Lee-drawn picture.  That's beyond blasphemous.  And especially don't post something from Hush, one of the best Batman stories ever.
2.  Batman's suit is just fine, and anyone who whines about it probably liked Spawn's stupid ass.

3.  In Soviet Russia, Bat-suit hates you!!!

Maybe for you, but you can't deny that some ridiculously awesome stories have come out of the Batman mythos. (The Killing Joke, Arkham Asylum, and The Long Halloween spring to mind. Also the upcoming "Joker" graphic novel is supposed to be fantastic.)

You aren't talking about the story.  You are talking about the suit.
Freddy Krueger is the reason New Line Cinema exists...the same company that put out the LOTR movies.

That's about the relevance of story has to the suit.

Back on topic:  at least Batman's suit isn't Superman's suit.

True, there have been numerous artists who have managed to make Batman look awesome even in such an awkward suit. Also, Spawn was retarded. Don't make blanket statements. The only reason I picked that picture was because of Batman's contemplative look. I'll find a more appropriate one.
