In a promo image for The Flash this week, Grant Gustin was revealed wearing the official costume for the first time. Now, just days later, he's gone full frontal Flash!

The Flash (a spin-off of Arrow) hopes to be picked up for a 2014-2015 season. The least we can all do is support the pilot and get this off the ground. I would love to view at least one season to see what they can do with it, as well as watch a crossover event. Check out these on-set images of Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster filming the pilot for The CW.

Opinions are going to be all over the map on this one. On the one hand, it's a very nice-looking design and much better than I was expecting. On the other hand, I would expect something a bit more friction-resistant for a runner.

As a comic book fan, I appreciate an artist who draws characters to their strengths. I like Michael Turner's style, for example, but would Superman and the Flash have the exact same body style? Or would Flash be sleeker, as befits a runner, while Supes' design would call for broader shoulders? I know it's hard to follow this policy in a live action show, but I had assumed they selected Gustin for his slim build and I don't feel this suit takes advantage of that.

Thoughts on the design? Overall, I think they got the color, cowl, and modern style correct.
