Inspiration from new technology

The way the hood appears around the character’s face has been widely commented on by fans of the character, who have compared the technology to the sight of the Marvel films, especially Iron Man and Captain Marvel, who also had very similar scenes in which we see their helmets forming around their heads.

Other fans also remembered that the stage styling and hood formation is very reminiscent of how the Flash costume works in the new 52 comics, using the cover of the hero’s comic book first edition on
