What do people think? Am I right? Wrong? How would you feel about going the "Iron Man route" and just ditching the secret identity all together?

Mods, if this isn't deserving of it's own thread feel free to merge it with an appropriate one, I just wanted to get people's thoughts on this.

You haven't seen the ComicCon footage have you???
