His boots are not painted their necessary red. He doesn't even look like he has boots on.

That's like one of the first things I noticed on the minfig, they did it for WW but not SM... come on Lego, get it together!
Get it? Lego needs to "Get it together" ha ha ha, j/k ;)

And Batman's aren't black. Lego usually leaves out details on feet. There are flukes though... like wonder woman and a few collectible minifigures.

I hope we get a corrected/accurate Supes in a future Lego DC set.

Yeah, but Batman is... BATMAN! He can do anything and still be awesome, just sayin. ;)

Batman don't need no stink'n boots or underwears. He can beat up Superman for craps sake! :)

Plus, he practically stole Superman's woman, so he definitely doesn't need any boots, lol.

I just picked up this set on a discount. Looking forward to building my first foray into the DC Superhero sets.

I am curious to what Lego's criterion is for painting legs or not. They're doing it more in Star Wars as the new Sandtroopers have leg details and the recent farmboy Luke did too. Yet there are others with nothing where it might make sense.

Like this set. Maybe WW got it because it would've been too ridiculous for her to appear barefoot but it's okay for Superman to have blue pajamas. *shrugs*
