I said years ago on the old DC boards that the Flash's firetruck-red uniform looked silly and needed to be toned down if the character was ever going to be taken seriously by the mainstream, and every person who responded trolled me for saying it. And now of course many of those same people will be thrilled by the sight of this.


Just because they've gone that way doesn't mean it's the right way to do it, nor does it mean the traditional look is wrong for the small or big screen.

The old Flash series did the costume pretty well.

I don't like the absence of the yellow boots, the red background on the chest emblem, nor the lightning bolt earcups. (I still say the earcups look like the ones from that badly done Justice League pilot from years ago.)

Of course, I don't like Superman's costume without the red trunks, or Wonder Woman's emblem, belt, or tiara not being gold, being silver/gray instead.
