-Aquaman #5: After the first issue was nothing but bad Aquaman jokes, I shudder to think about "Aquaman vs. Sand!"
-The Flash #5

-DC Universe Presents #5
-Superman #5: First issue wasn't that great. Hopefully it will improve.
-Superboy #5: Since I dropped a few DC books after the first issues didn't impress me, I figured I'd give this one a go, since it wasn't that bad.
-Supergirl #5: Same as Superboy.
-Batgirl #5: As much as I detest how we got here, the first issue didn't blow, so I'm biting my lip and giving it a go.

That's not Kid Flash's costume on the cover of #5, that's Tim Drake's Robin costume.
I know it's not his regular costume (I really doubt they'd go for a costume change already five issues in), but I can't imagine a scenario where Kid Flash would have to wear another persons costume to fight Superboy. It just doesn't sound like something I'd pay to read about.
I think a simple explanation would be that Bart ends up at Tim Drake's HQ with no costume, and Superboy comes crashing in, and in need of a costume he just takes the Robin one that Tim has in a case or something. Something like that happening isn't something that would make me not want to read a comic, but different strokes for different blokes and all that.
He has his own cloth mask under Robin's, so unless he's there naked, there's no reason he can't fight Superboy in what he was wearing, since his identity isn't compromised anyway.
It's not the sole reason I don't want to read it. It just adds to the previous reasons I had with the first issue, reinforcing me not wanting to keep reading the series.
