A "domo doll" has been spotted wearing Superman's famous outerpanties.

One of the stories floating around the blogosphere this week was the return of Superman's infamous red outerwear, which disappeared during DC's reboot a year and a half ago. Critics of the change complained that the new version of Superman lacked sexiness and allure due to the lack of red outer-lingerie and that DC had betrayed Superman's roots by portraying him as some weak softie who was unafraid to let his freak flag fly. They also noted that many professional athletes, such as noted heterosexual and sixteenth string New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, wear shorts over the asshugging mantights worn during "cold-weather" (read under 85 degrees) practices.
Well, those critics got their wish this week when DC unveiled a new domo doll wearing a classic Superman outfit, complete with red briefs on the outside of the costume. While we're not sure what a domo doll is exactly, it seems to be a Japanese invention, which probably means that it's a sex toy for cats or something.
Whatever a domo doll is, Red Superman Underwear fans are rejoicing. Already, lines are forming around Domo stores across the nation, all hoping to be able to snatch up these dolls and fondly gaze upon Superman's crotch region once again. There will also be Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Shazam, Two-Face and Riddler domo dolls available as well.
