Imagine how amused I am by someone who claims to be knowledgable in design would disagree with them. Sure, I'm just a independent wanna-be, but I've actually designed and copy-written couple of super-hero costumes myself and these pro trunks guys aren't wrong about how important (from a design perspective) the trunks are.

I disagree that the trunks are anything but the shorthanded version of the hips construction, and that there aren't viable alternatives, i.e. Captain Marvel's guantlets and think belt, but something needs to break up that blue bodysuit. Although the trunks are a good design element to achieve that purpose, the fad is blasé. It's a deal breaker for casual fans and a source of derision, so I think it should be altered.


As previously noted, it's very common nowadays for athletes for wear compression leggings/tights under their shorts for performance and protection.

That design doesn't translate well to comic books.

True, but a more squared off trunk might be a more "modern" take. And I put that in quotations because they were drawn like that in the 60's
