I like it. \^_\^





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

Well I like what I see of it, the goggles are one of the best such designs I've seen in a Superhero show - though a point of concern might be the loose tunic he appears to be wearing in this shot, it seems quite odd that a character who's chief talent is to stretch and elongate his limbs and body wouldn't be wearing something more snug and skin hugging...

I like it more than the loose pajamas he's been wearing.

The costume is good, shame about his name... "Elongated Man" that's right up there for being terrible along side "Absorbing Man" in Marvel...

Is it representational of anything he's ever worn in the comics?
