It does remind me of X-men and other superheros. With this trunk, you get more of that flashy design, plus a roomy pouch and soft bands round the legs.
OMG!!! I truly love these, my wife really likes them too. They fit perfectly fine, not to mention they look really sexy.
Nice smooth cotton blend fabric in exciting designs. Body of trunk feels slightly undersize. (I am a perfect 'M' in Zen, Grip Mesh, C-Factor & Spectrum) Pouch is restrictive as gusset between legs is too high, causing you to feel 'lifted up' on a ledge. Not anatomically comfortable. Shorty legs are nice, preventing them from riding up, but then the leg bindings also feel undersize. Sadly not the same cut as the original Army Trunks from way back.
