How come nobody ever catches heroes changing on CCTV?

Okay, Spider-Man's "spider-sense" and Daredevil's radar sesne( and Wolverine's enhanced senses) might let them know when a CCTV is nearby but this still leaves Iron Man, Thor and Captain America( the late Captain America) who have no such enhanced senses out on a limb!

Explanations, please!

suspension of disbelief....

in the real world, there would be no such thing as a secret identity you could hold for longer than about a week, MAX.

Most surveillance cameras are only checked when there's a crime to be reported, otherwise, nobody ever looks at those tapes.
 
I don't understand the problem really considering that Iron Man and Captain America both have (had) public identities. And Thor is just Thor.
 
You're telling me Iron Man don't have a way to switch off some mall security cams?

I mean, Iron Man?

When he was Don Blake, he usually transformed in his own office, which presumably either has no CCTV or has CCTV that is ultimately under Blake's control. :up:

It's actually a really simple process to keep from being identified on most security cameras. All you need is a couple infrared LEDs, a few electronic parts and a decent battery. I'm sure Iron Man could definitely handle that.

Plus, in general, CC cameras cover a very small section of New York. Unlike many places in Europe (especially London), CC cameras are not that widespread in the US, other than with private users and businesses.

[rubs hands together in an evil fashion] Great, I can kick-start that old evil scheme of mine lying around, waiting for the day that I could get around CC TV [/rubs hands together in an evil fashion]

Good. I await hearing about it in the news.

Plus another reason that I've now thought of: most CC cameras are focused on ground level activity. Most super heroes travel on rooftops and such. Even ones like Captain America routinely run across the rooftops to get from place to place.

The iloveclones Perp Walk. Instant YouTube classic.

I think it was more about the heroes changing clothes somewhere on ground level a lot. Yeah, Spider-Man may swing from rooftop to rooftop, but Peter Parker has often changed into his Spider-Man costume in alleys and such.
 
like the guy said earlier though Corp, while I've shared the same question as you, when you think about it, how much of the city is really covered by CC?

I'm from Atlanta, and yeah, the Marta stations, outside banks, a couple other places, maybe a few traffic cameras, but on the whole, not a lot of cameras around. It wouldn't be to hard for people to avoid I would think
 
Changing their clothes inside seems to solve the problem fairly well.

not to mention when Blake or even BRB transform there is normally alot of Lightning. I'm sure the static on the tvs and recording devices would be so bad you wouldn't SEE any transformation.
 
alot of super heroes have there identity known for one, and people like spider-man change in bathrooms, broom/janitor closets... etc... places cameras arn't. Only thing that ever bothered me about spidey was his coming and going in daylight from the window of aunt mays or his apartment.. night sure ill buy that.. but a bright red and blue costume in a highly populated area... never

They've actually adressed that in the past. It's how Norman and MJ figured out his identity.

well norman followed him...

but lol living in a neighborhood his neighbors would easily know he's spidey.. esp in queens in an area with elderly nosy women.
 
I'm surprised there aren't more paparazi types out there trying to uncover identites. If they can get pics of pop stars smoking crack, i'm sure they could find out if Murdock really is double D.

They all used to have secret IDs, though.

I never thought of that, actually. :up:
 
Well keep in mind quite a few of these heroes arent all associated with their hero identity. Peter and Tony yeah, but others barely have any connection(thus the "no one suspects that so and so is the Incredible....") Yeah when i read CCTV i was like, who the bleep has that in the US. I come from chicago and we barely got Cameras on the street taking pics, much less and big network of CCTV.
