@sly_141: his ring is (was?) faulty so he has it for backup when it fails.

Hmm. The Green Lanterns variant is the only one I'd want from this bunch.

Don't want. I'll stick to the very nice main covers.

first time seeing GA full new costume, kinda like the bit of red/bronze, that artist made Canary look a bit like a Barbie

I don't always get Green Lantern books, but that's one I've been thinking about

@sly_141: "Why does Simon Baz have a gun?"

Because he's a stupid character that's trying to be edgy. I can't take him seriously when he's waving that around. Wouldn't most GL baddies laugh at a hand gun?

Man these variants look bad. For some reason Black Canary looks like a Barbie doll to me. Also is it just me or is Batman packing one serious Bat-bulge?

what do people think of the superman costume? I think over time ill get used to it, but i did like the collar and red boots from new 52.

i definitely like Aquamans new52 suit over the rebirth one. Also, Wonder Womans DCYou costume was neat. I would've loved to see that one continue.

Woah, woah DC. When you have an issue one you gotta have at least 5 variants minimum. Don't you know how Marvel and Dynamite roll?

Green Arrow looks like a Green Lantern. And that hood doesn't match the outfit. Canary looks good though.

Really digging the Batsuit on the Variant. I prefer the bigger Pre-FP Body Build that Superman has been rocking in a lot of art but I'm still glad about the new suit.

Really looking forward to rebirth.

To echo the sentiment of others here, Dinah looks like a blow up doll. The rest look fine. Glad to see Superman ditch the collar.

@saint_talker: Actually, now that I look at it again, I realized what it is. He doesn't have the red boots. I can accept, and even like, his costume without the "underwear", but there's just too much blue in the suit without the boots being red.

@zearing: I know what you mean. I'm fine either way. The boots do not define a man. Not even a Superman. I just thought the artist referenced Henery Cavil alittle to closely.

What does "Design elements to be added" refer to? Does this mean they plan on adding backgrounds? I think I'd prefer if they didn't.

He's a cop, cops have guns.

He's a cop, cops have guns.

I remember when I was reading it I thought it was a good idea that he hung onto it considering all the crazy things that were happening to him. I wouldn't have thrown it away, that's for sure.

As for Superman's costume, I guess it's pretty cool.

Probably, but look where that got Sinestro.

You can argue he's trying to be edgy, but it has come in handy before. With that in mind, who says it wouldn't again. Better than nothing when your power ring is dead.

i definitely like Aquamans new52 suit over the rebirth one. Also, Wonder Womans DCYou costume was neat. I would've loved to see that one continue.

I agree with you, regarding Wonder Woman and Aquaman. The entire Superman situation has me shaking my head. I have no real choice though. I might consider picking up Superman, but for now, I'll be reading every other Super book except Superman and possibly Action.

And the GLs variant and regular cover looks cool.

I am not liking the idea of Canary being a constant in the Green Arrow series though. Seriously, what's the point of that? Didn't we get enough of that pre-Flashpoint?

The GL Variant looks good, the Superman too. Something is off about the Batman one to me, pose is funny and it looks like he skipped leg day at the gym.

Man I can't stand costume changes to fit movies. So strange now because there's so many happening all once across the board and if they aren't perfect copies they share as many similarities as they can. I have to admit though every single one of them looks better than their film counter parts.

Not really too impressed with any of the variants but I really like the normal Batman: Rebirth cover.
