I am usually not a fan of character redesigns that completely overhaul what has gone before. One exception was with Brainiac. When the "new" Brainiac was revealed in the 80's, I was a big fan of the robotic look. Sure it was a huge change from the green-skinned, pink-shirt wearing villain I had come to know, but I thought it was much more imposing and made sense for the character. Later incarnations veered back closer to the original design, but there must still be a lot of fans of the 80's look, as it continues to show up in Brainiac's skull ship and robotic minions.
