LOL so wearing your underwear under you clothes doesn't keep you as warm as wearing them over your clothes? I never knew that. Do the people going on expeditions to the arctic and antarctic know this? I mean this information could save lives.


Surely Batmans underwear would therefore make any attacks by Mister Freeze ineffectual? Take pity on him. The only villain being foiled by a pair of Y Fronts

Why do they seemto wear thier uderwear outside thier costumes? It looks rather wierd.


Ur question should be why they are wearin an "extra" underwear outside.

The answer seem to be obvious, more protection :P

Its an artistic convention, because the nude form is easier to draw than the clothed form.


In the early days of superhero comics, the artist's drawing superheroes would just put a line or two at the hips to signify that the characters was wearing clothing. This despite being essentially drawn "nude" with the defined muscle forms that logically should not be seen that well if the figure was clothed. Otherwise the casual viewer might mistake the character as being pant-less--which publishers wanted to avoid.

"Underpants on the outside" became the de rigeur/defacto look for classic superheroes from that point on.


That's the answer.
