    Call me crazy but I love the Talon aesthetic. Great artwork on this book.

    Yeah, it's not a good look. Which is odd, because a lot of the other Talon costumes looked pretty good.

    Those costumes were fine, it's the costume he wore later on that was a crime against humanity:



    But even then I think I still prefer that over Talon's.

    In the zero issue, he has a full head mask. I haven't seen where he dons his costume in the present day, so I don't know.

    I think the outfit is pretty awesome, and that the cover to #1 just doesn't show portray his costume like it should.

    hunh, interesting. Thanks. Wonder if it says in subsequent issues.
    Comics were happier before the Internet turned writing superhero stories into fruitless attempts to impress/entertain a small group of ppl who appear to hate comics and their creators.

    Such an immature poll.

    His costume looks cool to me.

    Does not bother me, there is worst costumes in the New 52 than this.

    It's okay, there are worse in the new 52.

    The hair thing is shown in issue 1, he is given the costume it's not the one he received from the court, the old guy (forget his name) who gave it to him says it's an upgrade, the idea is that it's poetic that the court are taken down by a Talon.

    If anyone read Guillem marches Catwoman run they will notice the only thing that bugs me: He has the exact same boots as Catwoman! (silly to be bugged by it I know, but when I see him kicking someone I think of him wearing Women's boots and it takes me out of the moment)
    Books im reading: Black Widow, Loki Agent of Asgard, Catwoman, Green Arrow, Red Hood, JLD, Wonder Woman, Action Comics, Batman, Worlds Finest...

    Calvin Rose could just be the Tim Curry of the DCU. Then the boots would be warranted.

    The costume is a bit goofy but I don't find it distracting when reading the book. There is a vague steampunk vibe to it.

    So Bat-forum, what do you think? Is this costume worse than Tim's New 52 one or AzBats? Does Talon deserve a re-design? (There are other owls)

    It's one of the worst costumes I've seen recently, yeah.

    His is no more worse than Crazy quilts or Chronos for sure.It may evolve eventually.It seems that that the new 52, and bad costuming goes hand in hand these days.

    Since there is a distinct lack of Feather shaped swords and knives yes it's pretty bad. :)
    I like swords.
