It couldn't be the same as it is with Batman or Superman's costumes. He really has nothing to hide from.

But to make it a tool that emphasizes Mariko's pain in seeing the man she loves slaughter dozens of people makes it both iconic and poignant.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
She looks for him in the masked beast murdering the Yakuza and finds him through the eyes.
The only other way I can think of to introduce the costume and mask would be for it to be part of a psychological ritual to help Logan separate the man from the animal.

Giving him a mask and costume and sending him on a mission would be their way of making him embrace the animal while in the costume - and then shut that part of himself away when he takes the costume off, a way of trying to divide the two personas.

A bit like Batman taking on the character of bat/darkness/shadows when putting on the costume.
