Why It’s Important That Superman’s Trunks Are Back

Ravings

We got the word in the middle of January:

“Hey, guys, DC here. Just so y’know…Superman’s trunks are coming back.”

And comics fans rejoiced. (Mostly.)

You might think those of us who care about this change are making a big deal out of underwear, and yes, we are, thank you very much. Because Superman’s trunks are more than just a design choice. The trunks are a symbol, just like the “S” on Superman’s chest. The “S” might stand for hope, but the trunks? The trunks stand for wonder.
