    I liked that one too although Hitch kind of lazily applied Ultimate design choices into characters like Cap and Hawkeye.

    I am not creator,writer,editor,artist,ect.... so i don't changing things so if you have problem with comics adjusting to era that is you guys fault and maybe comics are not for you

    Superhero began looking like this



    capes and underwear outside



    Then superheroes look more like this less underwear outside, very few capes

    Then was the 90's extreme era with that was all over the place( don't have space to put pics)

    Now we are in the leather more realistic style kevalar based era



    More examples of the current modern style

    Look in red she hulk 58 for some more and ultimates design like giant men,hawkeye,black widow are another examples.In case you have not been paying attention every other superhero around these characters have taking more realistic leather look leaving Captain America and some other heroes with more classic design looking like relics. Captain America has classic good design and the change made in this costume took it too far,It has to many lines and stuff but a change did need to happen to bring it more line with other heroes of today.Look at the new costume take away lines in pants and knee pads,take away the 2 lines under his arms and they uniform looks pretty good.The truth is in the middle and between his old suit and new suit their is a design that would look great.

    Well, even if you upgrade costume, it's still based on the original design. If original design is cheesy, the re-design will be always cheesier.

No offense to Remender, but X-Vengers is unlikely to be anywhere near as good as Planetary so I'll take watered-down Cassady to keep it moving else I for one will just spend my money elsewhere (not worth the wait). Sadly my guess is even the "rushed" Cassady is likely going to have to take a break at some point and we'll be stuck with fill-in artists.
    Cassaday's art really suffers when he has to rush -- even his Astonishing X-Men run was pretty uneven. Look at the difference in quality between the first 3 issues and say, issue 17 of his run there. He's an artist who needs time to get his best work done, otherwise some of his figure work starts to look odd. It's the same way with other artists -- Brian Hitch's art, for example, looks almost grotesque when rushed.

    The only artist whom I can say has a pretty consistent style is Olivier Coipel (that is, Coipel from his Thor days onwards; his Legion Lost stuff was good but very different from his later work that made him famous) -- his issues of AvX were far and away the best-looking of the lot.

    The comic costume is definitely influenced by the live action one from Avengers. That said, it would not have hurt Marvel to have left it alone, though I do wish artists would stop drawing the classic Cap costume with "shorts" lines. The bottom part of his costume is monochrome anyway (boots excepted) so it never made sense to me why they couldn't just draw it as one piece... Really, it would not hurt for all superhero comics to just drop the briefs-outside-trousers look.
