Yeah, I heard about that explanation in the Dark Knight returns for the oval yellow symbol. Not quite sure I buy it, but it makes sense at least for wearing it in the short run, before alternating to another costume.

Yeah, in the darkness the new suit looks much better. Just about everything and anything looks bad in too much light.

Batman actually explains that that is why he wears the yellow in DKR, if you didn't get that. Although he does later switch to the black in the same book, which I suppose doesn't make a lot of sense.

If you haven't read it, pick it up. It's fantastic.
