No way! In JL he has a bigger torso and slightly thinner legs, but atleast he actually has man feet instead of tiny keebler elf feet, lol. really though, I think the JL design is more streamlined and better looking than STAS, but to each their own good sir.
"Good and Great things in life are rarely ever easy... but they are worth it."
I like the S:TAS version, because it reminds me of the 40s Max Fleischer designs, with the dark colors and bright plain red cape.
But that's the REAL reason I love it so much.
And THAT'S not enough for it to be my favorite.
Of the designs listed, the B:TBaTB design is my favorite
Seriously! It just screams Curt Swan/60s, and that makes me so outstandingly happy. PLUS! The yellow S on his cape!!!
I really like the Young Justice look, but it's basically a more detailed version of "JL:CoTE" design. Which isn't a bad thing. I like it. It's definitely the most proportional.
But again, no S on the cape.
I really enjoy the "The Batman" look. But I never cared for the super-long cape, or the GIANT S-shield. Just aesthetically irritating to me.
EDIT: Same goes for his Legion of Superheroes look. Just don't dig the long cape look.
And, I will always DESPISE the JL/JLU design.
Seriously.. utter hatred. He's not Superman. He's a truck with tiny Johnny Bravo legs, wearing a cape.

BTBAB gets a lot of love for the yellow S on the cape for sure, hope to see it animated into the cape in future. On another note though my one negative comment is the length of the cape I prefer the longer cape thats why the Batman's Superman is my favourite.

Consider Yourself Impeached - Superman to Lex Luthor (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies)
Count me as a fan of the retro TBATB look. Really I think the Max Fleischer designs are the best simply because of their age: Superman, to me, exists as an icon of a bygone age. I think he's still relevant today, but he has the feel of the 30s and 40s and 50s, the Golden and Silver Ages. Probably in no small part because he's yet to really "click" in modern comics.
You can doll up Batman and Wonder Woman and Green Lantern for the 21st century, but with Supes, you can't beat the classics.

I like the JL/JLU one the best. He's big, strong and cool looking. Since this is all about design and not personality and such I don't have much else to say.
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll make an edit.
I will admit that my taste in the short cape has a bit of bias to it. the Fleischer cartoons and the Chris Reeve movies, and the Curt Swan era Supes are all my favorites, and they all have the knee-length cape.BTBAB gets a lot of love for the yellow S on the cape for sure, hope to see it animated into the cape in future.

But, on top of that I think it has to do with characterization as well.
Batman is all about hiding in the shadows, and being this monolithic figure, and he also uses cape-style martial arts. So, I see him as needing a long cape for attack, aesthetic and concealment.
Superman is heroic and straight-forward. So, the shorter cape covers less of him. And short cape always reminds me of Greco-Roman mythological heroes for some reason. So, I see him as more befitting a short cape.
But that's just me.
I does look cool.
I've always been a fan of huge billowing capes.
The Spectre has a great cape!
My favorite cape though... Spawn! Gotta love it!
