A Superman with a maroon and white color scheme? Maybe if it was more white than Maroon, in the fashion of the FF's white unis.

Hmmm could work.

Superman Maroon/Superman Teal?
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.

I think I like this 2uperman more. Maroon Shirt and Trunks, black cape with white inside lining. Wish the drawing would allow that to be done a little better

Last One for the night. I experimented with a maroon cape and shirt combo. I like the concept, but the execution has something to be desired. Stayed with the white leggings, though I don't think they really work with supes well.

Image

In the end, I think a primarily maroon/black combo works better than a maroon-white or maroon/black/white scheme. (It might end up looking more like Star Boy's original costume, for one thing).I don't think Supes costume is going to work with a lot of white on it unless you ditch the cape.

The more maroon and black designs work better, I think. The white and maroon ones don't seem to work as well with the cape. They remind me more of Star Boy or Element Lad's original costumes.

I didn't really play much with a black and white combo, but I'm not sure they work with the cape.

I see a lot of Mon-El in the mix...

I thought so too. IDK how it would look if I used a maroon closer to the kind Texas A&M uses in real like. Aggie maroon seems a little darker than the maroon the site I used had.

On the other hand, Mon-El's "Superman" uni was fugly.

This is really more like what I wanted the cape to look like. White with Maroon lining.
