If it degrades in UV, then it interacts with the UV light in some way. I can't say this definitively, but most things that block visible light also block UV, though there are exceptions both ways. Thick clothing, like the various and sundry bat-suits, should do the trick. Exposed skin is going to be a problem, like around any cuts, her lower face, and potentially her scalp.

Now, it's possible (though in my mind unlikely) that the suit is translucent to UV light. That would allow for the light to both interact with it (causing the degradation) while still exposing the character to the UV radiation. However, this would make it a very strange material, as simple light cotton can prevent sunburns.

That said, I find it odd that they're worrying more about UV Radiation in this scene than, say, overheating from wearing a skintight jet black superhero suit in the desert. Because UV radiation aside, that think will be drinking up ALL of the visible radiation and converting that into heat super efficiently. It will also lose it incredibly fast come night time, so she'll have to deal with freezing as well, assuming she survives the day.

But yeah, skin cancer should probably be the last thing on her mind right now, but she did get blown up a bit.

Yeah, her step 1 should be wrapping her cape, and any other fabric she can salvage from the crash, loosely around her. Loose black fabric is great in the desert because it absorbs body heat and then lets the wind convect it away. Skintight black fabric? Really bad idea.

No... Bruce would just have developed special sun-resistant armor or whatever if he thought he was going to need it in the desert. :) But for normal work? Pfft of course not.

The question would be, does his normal outfit offer any protection against Doctor Phosphorus? Because that's basically sunburn squared. Does Bruce just dodge like crazy and toss batarangs from behind walls if Sartorius shows up, or does he have enough shielding to risk throwing a punch?

Given the power of nominative determinism in comics, it's a bit surprising that Dr. Alexander Sartorius became a radioactive skeleton-man, and not a clothing- and fashion-themed supervillain.

Didn't he sell his soul to Neron mostly so he could wear clothes again? I think that counts!
