He IS wearing purple. As both a purple lover and a comics purist, my emotions are torn. Do I go with the color I love so dearly, my favorite color, the color that comprises 80% of my wardrobe?! Or do I go with a pulishing history that reaches back from sixty years, and a costume that, even though it's seen its share of re-designs, still comes back to its basic form published fify-five, nay, fifty-six years ago?
Oh the drama!
