Just look at this. That photo on the left is of Exo Man, another hero that uses a technologically superior suit to fight crime. Even in the '70s, I don't think a walking female pleasure toy would've stood much of a chance in the battle against evil.
It's not just in the costumes, either. Makeup and hair-dressers have become way more on-point in making the heroes look like their comic counterparts. Let's try not to remember how the gruff, grizzly Wolverine was originally depicted as a Flock of Seagulls member with mutton chops.
I didn't know that they made a Shakespeare rendition of Dr. Strange back in the day. I also didn't know they got Benedict Cumberbatch to play him there as well. I did know he was ageless, so at least that isn't much of a surprise.
Linda Carter was and forever will be awesome. But you have to admit there was a certain level of camp to her twirling depiction. The modern Wonder Woman is a badass epic on par if not better than any other action adventure film.
We're all used (and maybe overexposed) to CGI these days. But imagine the folks back in the day seeing Superman actually fly onscreen. It would've blown their minds. Also, current Superman's belt isn't above his belly button. 'Nuff said.
Okay, the latest Joker was a bit... extra. But you know what? At least Jared Leto was willing to shave off his mustache when playing the character. That's even more questionable than all those cringey tattoos.
Howard the Duck made brief cameos in the Guardians Of The Galaxy movies. A few decades earlier, someone decided he needed his own movie. Mind you, Spider-Man didn't even have his own film at this point. We live in a golden, miraculous age.
