...I am really enjoying Brightest Day, I just wish they had more J'onn in it, or they put him in his own comic. They could do it like old school detective style (which is kinda what they are doing now, but they need to do more.) Anyways I never really liked the costume he used in Final Crisis, but it wasn't horrible.
When I saw the new one designed for him, I was really glad they brought back literally half of his classic costume. anyways I want a figure of him from DC Direct, wearing his new costume but the figure definitely needs to be designed to look like the one from BD #3's awesome Cover. Image

what about you guys do you like his re-design? I do ;)

This was done in Paint.net so it isn't very good, but Mattel should do something like this:

I'm definitely digging the new costume as well. Seems like a nice blend of old and new.

And PANTS!

Those 8 would make a very cool 2 waves Brightest Day figures.

I agree the new Manhunter costume is incredibly well done. I, also, was NOT a fan of the "Final Night" costume he was sporting and if that JLU repaint doesn't make it out I won't be bothered.

The mockup of a new JLU "new costume" figure is nicely done and would most definitely get my $10.

I agree that we need to start seeing solicits for Brightest Day figures sooner rather than later ...

I still wonder if we might not see the new costume as the "All Star" version of MM in DCUC.

Or somewhere down the road at that. Obviously I think they'll stick with the SP costume for wave 15.

Although it would be cool if they'd stick some painted pants and a slightly different chest deco on the 'alien head' variant.
