The boots and gloves are a little busy, but ultimately I really like this redesign.

Can you point towards any redesigned New 52 costume which ISN'T " a little busy"?

Does Morrison's t-shirted Superman count? =p

I realize what you're going for here but yes - I can point to the ones that are a LOT busy. Like Black Canary's. I still don't know what the fuck is going on there.

It's like millions of future artists are crying in terror, isn't it?

There's so much on the gloves that his hands lose their visible contours and I thought they were drawn on backwards for a second.

PS: Good luck bending at the waist! And I love that they somehow gave him a v-collar like EVERYONE ELSE, only his looks good.

Okay, I think I could fix this. Sortof. See the heavily lined gold bits in the "background" of the belt thing and boots? Make that fabric. Then he could move his feet and waist.

The gloves... just... well, those completely immobilize his hands from this angle, but they're also totally hideous, they should just be scrapped and done from scratch.

The waist isn't terrible bothersome, as Dr. Fate usually has a weird giant belt like that.

Fate does not need to bend at the waist! Fate needs only float around ominously whilst projecting ankh-shaped energy bolts. And spout mystical gibberish.

Yeah, he even flies in a standing position, not lying forward like other folk.

To be fair, Dr. fate has a lot more experience rocking the high-collar look than most superheroes.

I also like the black-indigo-royal purple thing going on instead of standard sky blue.FATE has a great pedigree Golden Age on, but has been kind of lost in the shuffle in reboot hell since COIE.

Probably the first 52 redesign I actually like. It looks good as a splash page, at the very least.

It's a fine design, it'll be major simplified by other artists. So it'll just end up looking like Doctor Fate's Young Justice animated design - which is a gooood design.

YJFate is awesome. :) Nabu is an asshole, but Fate is cool.

Okay. DC is really making me want to get this book. I haven't read it yet. Is it any good?

I , for one, really enjoy Earth 2. Its a good polishing of the characters. If we can't have the in-continuity stories of the Justice Society and their classic renditions, this is a good substitute. And the art is GORGE.
