90's Superman and Batman by m7781 90's Superman and Batman by m7781
because you needed armor, shoulder pads and pouches galore to fight crime in the 90's you had these two super fill-ins...

i thought these were awesome back in the day...

Also, don't forget to add gauntlet projectiles to the list of pouches, shoulder pads and hi-tech armor. Honestly though, I'd say the Eradicator would've meshed better with Azreal's style (no detective work, keep punching bad guys until you find the right one) instead of John Henry Irons.  While they both made their armors, Jean Paul doesn't even remember doing it.  Still a cool piece.  Too bad DC never did anything like this officially.

They look like Space Marines from Warhammer 40K, what with the armor and the gigantic shoulder pads or pauldrons as they're called. Stll, fine work here, man! ;)

this is cool. But why is superman just Steel with superman's logo on his chest?

What, no love for the mullets and ridiculously long, though sometimes cleverly justified hairdos? :D

(More) seriously though, many thanks for executing fond memories of my childhood with amazing artistry. Please keep up the great work.

I don't mind pouches if Superheroes are shown actually using them.  For example:  Batman and Robin and their utility belts.   But otherwise, they are just there.  in the 90s I thought it was where they kept gum, tissues, and spare change for vending machines.

I missed this arc, but my first thoughts were what is Black Panther doing with Steel. Then I read the comments, and realized it was Azreal.
