Among the iconic features of the Superman costume is the wearing of red underwear over the blue tights. Ever wonder why? According to the director of the Man of Steel, Zack Snyder, the original creators of Superman, Siegel and Schuster, modeled the character after "Victorian strongmen, or circus strongmen. They wore their underwear on the outside of their pants because in the Victorian era, no skin could be shown. So when they first started doing circus strongmen, they would wear tights, and then they would put underwear over the top [of them] to give the illusion of nudity." See the guy on the left in picture #2? Yeah, his costume inspired Superman's tights....

He's such a fantastic actor. Yep, you heard that right. @oj1992 is a three-eyed, green alien who likes to cause mayhem on Vingle wherever she is. :P
