I wonder if that is a permanent change or simply part of the "this is the future of DCU except of course it can't be" nature of Rotworld.

Oh my god...Henry Irons..has become the 90s. All he needs is some pouches.

My first thought was "Transformer".

Definitely thinking "War Machine".

How do you make a Steel without a hammer?!?!

You'd think the creators didn't know his name was John Henry Irons.

Mine was "War Machine, as designed by Rob Liefeld."

I suppose, if there's no spikes they why would he need a hammer?

Ironically he was *from* the 90s. Just one of the better-looking characters designed at the time.

I was thinking "War Machine" too.

I'm guessing he's a cyborg or something. Because from the waist to the crotch area doesn't seem like a place for human body parts

The big question is how exactly does Steel fit in with Superman.

He already showed up in Action Comics. I'm glad he's starting to show up elsewhere.

Aw man, this costume sucks. I really liked the John Henry we saw in Grant Morrison's Action Comics. He kind of became his own thing sans Superman yet was still involved in Metropolis. His costume there looked like a prototype headed in the right direction.

I had mixed feelings about the new Steel origin. On the one hand it was cool that he was more of his own man, but on the other, I feel like the fact that his original origin, being inspired by Superman, was legitimately great. It really helped to establish the feeling of a greater universe, what Superman means to people, and had the added effect of making Steel all the more badass, because he was a (relatively) regular dude who saw that Superman was gone and figured "Superman's dead, someone's got to protect the people, so I'll do it." It's kind of weird to me that Morrison, a writer who I think absolutely gets the aspirational quality of Superman, would choose to remove that element in Steel's origin.

Yeah, this is almost certainly an alternate future look, I mean, this just don't have anything about it that says Steel, so I don't think they''d make it permanent. It is very over the top though, almost admirably so.

If those are supposed to be missile launchers around his wrists, he'd better either be very careful or have some serious failsafes in place to keep from blowing his own hands off. (I guess that shoulder-mounted units would have been too War-Machiney.)

That's a deployment that just screams (micro)missile massacre.

Just when I thought gun placement couldn't POSSIBLY get any more stupid.

Seriously, if those things were to fold closed, they would crush his hands. Aside from the "ZOMG GUNZ!" what other possible, logical look could they have?

No really?! They lost his hammer?! Why?? It was the most iconic element of his look. Not the steel-face, nor the S-shield logo à la Superman, nor the cape. But the hammer!!

Also, if you take the time and money to make a massive costume like that one, your face should be protected with more than a coat of Rust-O-Leum.
