Default Clark's 12 year absense in STM actually helped the disguise.

Because of his change in appearance as he ages while he's gone, nobody ever has a chance to become acquainted with Clark's more matured appearance. The only time they see Clark as a full-grown man is while he wears glasses and his hair is neat and parted. If, instead, Clark had become Superman while in college, where many many people had a chance to memorize his face without glasses, they'd just see Superman's picture in the paper or on the news or even up close and they'd recognize him as Clark. The sudden change in personality would be jarring too. The 12 year gap makes it believable that Clark's personality could have changed over the years.

Completely agree! Clark's college days haven't been in continuity for decades, am I right?

Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
