    Well, this is probably really stupid. But how come Batman's eyes turn white when he puts the mask on? Does he have some contacts on, or should i leave that to artistic integrity:confused:

    It has lenses. We get POV shots through the lenses all the time. He can switch to heat-vision and infared, night vision and they can function as a targeting thingy. Points out vital spots on targets.

    How did Hawkman get his wings? Is there a connection there with the ones on Thanagar?

    There was a version of Hawkman, Katar Hol, who was from Thanagar.
    But the original and current Hawkman is Carter Hall, a normal guy. Reincarned Egyptian prince, lived a few thousand lives along with his soul make, Hawkgirl.
    They use Nth Metal to fly, it's an element from Thanagar that Prince Khufu (the first life of Hawkman) retrieved from a crashed Thanagarian ship.
    The Nth Metal has a lot of wierd uses, it makes them fly, heal quickly, have super strength and many other things. It also has the ability to... it's hard to explain. They have memories of the history of Thanagar. Not that they were there or anything, but because the metal was.
    That may have inspired him to create the wings (because memories of Thanagarian history), which are a status symbol on Thanagar and they're also used by their police force and military.
    But I didn't know if that (the part about him being inspired) was true. I read before that it was actually Carter Hall of Earth that inspired the Thanagarians to wear wings and not the other way around, but I don't know if that's true or not.

    Hawkman utilizes Nth Metal as a component of his wings and boots, which enable him to fly at terrific speeds and with great agility. The metal also allows its user to lift incredible weights and to withstand temperature extremes. The Nth Metal has several other properties that Carter has yet to tap into.


    So apparently he created the wings.

  15. Why is it that nobody can tell the difference between Clark and Superman?

    I mean a pair of glasses and a quif aint gonna help much..perhaps if I wanted to go into the crimefighting business, I shave my pube hairs and use it as a moustache, then when I want to become 'SuperDick' I rip them off...;) :D

    Don't bring up pre-crisis crap! :mad: :D ;)

    I mean, it's the same thing with Spider-Man, his voice, his build, hiw active he is just about everywhere as Parker and Spider-Man. Even when people like Luthor have found out Superman was Clark, he flat out didn't believe it. He looks and Clark, this guy who looks pretty damned normal. Walks with a slight hunch, gets knocked over at times, drop things. All on purpose of course, puts on a good show. Then he throws on that skin tight suit, he looks insanly muscular, ya know. Wears glasses as well. Lot of people look a lot different.

    And Superman usually appears in stressful, dangerous, panicky situations. Seriously, in a situation like that, your memory acts funny. We did an experiment in my psychology class one time, the professor had a guy come in right before class and steal his jacket from off his desk. He came in, asked where the professor was, grabbed the jacket and ran out the door.
    The professor told us all to write down a description of the person and nobody was accurate. One guy said he was black, another girl said he had sunglasses, one said he looked like a surfer, one said he had on a sweater. Yeah, it was a short white guy in a green t-shirt. Witnesses aren't as reliable as people think they are.
    Plus, if you were Superman... would you even HAVE an alternate ID? And if you did, would it be like Clark Kent?
    And Clark Kent has had his picture taken with Superman and has done a live TV interview with him, plus they seem to be in two places at once a lot (Clark was just in Metropolis, Superman was spotted in Berlin, etc.)
    And Perry White knows he’s Superman but he sits on the story. I bet Jimmy does, and I can almost guarantee Lois had a good idea before but didn’t say anything.
    I mean, would YOU want to be the guy that exposed Superman? Would you want to be responsible for something like that? And would you ever, ever, EVER want to go into a dark room alone again? Yeah, I bet a lot of people know he’s Clark Kent but they don’t say anything. Why would they?

    um Because they are journalists?

    I mean come on its THE biggest story EVER. Most if not all journalists really don't give a crap about the consequences. Thats such a lame excuse. Seriously when supes was sporting the mullet look, Clark had a pony tail:rolleyes:

    I wouldn't mind so much if Clark was a nobody like Peter Parker, but he's a damn famous reporter and author. Everyone has seen his face.

    And lets not even go there when it comes to the population of smallville not recognising superman

    I remember in one of those superman films when clark goes back to smallville for a class reunion (or something like that) and theres a HUGE picture of him sans glasses hanging in the sports hall and NO ONE recognises him?????

    I read about another experiment where a guy was asking people directions. During the explanation, a couple of guys moving a door would pass between the two people and the guy asking for directions would be replaced by somebody completely different (sometimes a female or a person of another race) and the people giving directions usually didn't notice.

    Well... uh... jeez, maybe you skimmed over the part where I said they've been in pictures together and Clark has interviewed him on live tv.
    And they aren't just journalists, they're his friends. And he's the most powerful creature on Earth, I wouldn’t want to be the one lowly person who was responsible for destroying his personal life.
