Required jacket: the return of thunder, super hero fashion acquisition layer.
Leather jacket… In superhero tights.
Maybe the jacket sleeve was pushed to the elbow jauntily? Finished some leather driving gloves for no reason?
This is… A look. You can’t say it’s not.
At the very least, it’s a throwback to the silly old days of the ’90s, when superhero fashions, such as skiing, skateboarding, shape-change and underarm deodorizing, get extreeeeeme.
In normal times, the jacket spandex doesn’t have any goddamn feel, it never does. Superhero costumes should reflect their inner life: bold, simple, iconic design reduced to basic elements and vivid primary colors. After all, super suits are sportswear, which means you can have a full range of sports. They have a strong suspicion of perspiration.
Put a jacket there, and you just needlessly complicate things. You make superheroes look picky. It’s a little cold too. (” avengers, assemble! No, you know, now, but soon! After that, I go back to the car and let my cowboy! )
Worse, as I mentioned before, you seem to have spent five minutes on the brick wall of a snack bar in 1991, making a peanut for the airline.
But that’s why many of the superheroes of the ’90s began to dress, and a burgeoning comic industry has created extreme inflation for demand growth! The heroes give violent violence – and anger. Editor’s idea is: “these new hero more complex than our classic hero -” (PSST: are they really not, ye) – “they should be reflected, we will make them look very modern, raw, in your face.”
We will call their bomber jacket and call it a day.
(I called on twitter yesterday to help me remember the superheroes who have been shocked by this regrettable appearance for many years, and about 24 hours later, the name still comes in. The number is an earth-shattering 47.
But as time went on, the comics boom of the early 1990s came to an abrupt end, and fashion’s superhero fashion faded. Many of the heroes who embody this kind of appearance come to their senses, just as you finally get rid of your argument. I suppose.
But now, one of the heroes of the 1990s defining the jacket era, today is taking revenge on a one-man comic strip in the store.
And yes, he took the jacket with him. That’s him, right at the top of this article.
But first, some quick backgrounds.
Faster than light
Since 1940, there has been a super hero named “The Ray” through The superhero circle. He was created by author Will Eisner and artist Lou Fine in Smash comics14, and his design was smooth: a yellow leotard with a shiny yellow jumpsuit and a decorative art deco wing.
In his debut in the decades since, he from a parallel world to another earth, with a broad definition of “power” light of perennial lawmakers, they struggle with a group of Nazi hero hangs together, can make his limbs explosive (named after the appropriate human bomb), rather than the embodiment of the American spirit (uncle Sam – rather than cigarettes – have souls patches on his legs, top hat, blue tail and striped pants).
In 1992, author Jack c. Harris and artist Joe Queseda introduced ray’s son in a six-part mini-film. His agreement is: young ray trier has grown up, believe you have a slight allergy, and keep in the dark – about his true origin, in order to avoid the strong sunlight triggers him before he grow up enough to control their energy.
The artist Queseda, as he was in the era of the Jolt-Cola zeitgeist, is full of the new Ray’s appearance. A jacket.
And… What kind of jacket
Come and look at this. First, it’s both short and double-breasted, just like no jacket. Despite the black and yellow color scheme, it is perfectly suited to Sunday, in order to evoke military uniforms.
I would ask my colleague Linda Holmes to summarize: “if sheriff pepper is the role of the bee movie.
Also, fingerless gloves. You know, if his heroic duty should require him to infiltrate “love is the battlefield” video.
Since 1994, the new second generation stupid “ray” version played by Christopher Chris Priestley (Christopher these) written by successful solo series, and by Howard Porter (Howard Porter) (original)
See, 1994 distilled to its soft hair, floppier jacket essence!
Since then, there have been two other versions of the DC comics: Stan Silver, an African-American journalist, and Lucien Gates, a korean-american lifeguard. Both of these recent rays have a sense of losing their coat.
Ray, a drop of golden sun.
But today, this is Ray Terrill, Bee-Movie- Sergeant-Pepper version of The Ray, he returns with a one-time comic, with The American justice alliance’s busy track: The Ray: Rebirth# 1. The writer Steve Orlando and the artist Stephen Byrne reintroduced the character and placed him in the United States justice league next month.
Orlando’s bisexuality and bourne are gay, and their version of teri is a superhero who is actually more than proud. Most queer readers will welcome this development, while others will hesitate. I found myself in a surprising conflict.
Don’t get me wrong – this is an admirable work, it reiterated his origin, set up their own world view, set up his new normal, and his position in the energy and economy of the DC universe. It leaves a lot of good, old, super hero uplift.
However, there are things I can’t go beyond: that retcon.
That’s not his current homosexuality and I appreciate that.
But accepting this fact means that I now have to force myself to accept the idea that any self-respecting queer would design that pathetic, pathetic coat.
Eventually I’ll let go and I mean, look at that guy down there. He does look happy.
