Practicality doesn't mean realistic either. Just means the look matches the intent, and frankly, looks better if I do say so myself
This doesn't look realistic but it does look like batman can actually do some damage
And "comic book accurate" doesn't always look good hence my "THEN see what could be changed" statement.
That doesn't work because you just argued studios want's it realistic and when they do a comic accurate (unrealistic) where explanation isn't needed why Bats has been wearing it for 75 years then you say it shouldn't be that way. I mean comics have been wearing costumes for absolutely no reason other than so they look cool and that is the exact reason Bats wears a batman costume, to look like a bat and supposedly scare his opponents.
Practicality to an extent means realism, it is the only way you want it to be practical is so that it feels more real or possible.
You are better off saying "I don't like that, they should have been like the games" than contradicting yourself.
Again I am not trying to argue but just wanted to point that out, it doesn't quite add up. And I agree comic accurate doesn't always means it looks good but to me, that Bats coming straight from TDKR looks really good and feel like a comic book with the crazy muscles and not some guy with riot gear with a cape and pointy ears.
If it it'll satiate your practicality side then you can just assume Bats or StarLabs has developed a new fabric that is tougher than steel that cannot be penetrated by bullets or at least prevents some punches or kicks or knife shanks? I mean that isn't out of the realm of comic book possibilities. Mr Fantastic developed fabric that won't burn, goes invisible and stretch. Stark developed stretchy shorts for the Hulk.Edited by RFX45 - 5/3/15 at 10:30pm
