One post in the recent Arrow conversation got me wondering.

Zechs wrote:Yes, he (Bronze Tiger) has this funky power that can make him a Man-Tiger. Just like Lady Shiva now has this mask that has a wig with a long ass axe attached to it plus her eyes glow green. Yet under the mask she's just regular Shiva, but younger plus talks with Southern Accent. You know it's sad when New 52 Richard Dragon = RZA is the best redesign of a classic DC Kung Fu character. :smt011


Speaking of redesigns...

What recent redesigns have REALLY worked for you? Who's gotten a new look that just blows away their classic look? Or maybe a character got a face lift and became a badass/were written much better?

Feel free to include pics! The more, the merrier!

Lets try and stay positive here, so no attacking designs you don't like (unlike that Bleeding Cool lady), just mention the redesigns that you think are the best.

And.... GO! 8)

Richard Rider's Annihilation makeover immediately comes to mind:

The Shade's redesign from James Robinson's Starman was infinitely better his previous look:

And if we are talking about Starman, we can't forget about Jack Knight:

I always loved the updated look they gave T'Challa during his Marvel Knights book.

The addition of vibranium weapons was awesome.

Rick Tyler's redesign was very cool, and an excellent nod to his father's awesome costume:

While Hector Hall was a rather disappointing Dr. Fate, I liked the Egyptian neckline added to the Dr. Fate costume:

Sheesh, a lot of these are more than a decade old! :oops:

WTF is this rank?

Tim Drake's updated Robin costume, pre-reboot.

Nightwing's modern costume, blue or red, is a huge improvement over his previous costumes.

Hawkeye's new "costume" is better than his original one as well.

I liked that one as well. It reminds me of the Gatchaman costumes. 8)

Seriously, wouldn't Robin look cool with a helmet?!
