Do you mean Morrisom and Quitely's Superman? That's good. They never collaborated on batman as far as I know. On B&R Lee's art is good but the series sucked IMO, I dropped it after issue 2.
Yeah, Morrison and Quitely are currently doing the Batman & Robin ongoing
I never actually thought why batmans eyes go white .. maybe is just comic theatrical licence. just the style rather than any techi stuff on his mask.
I think the most accepted answer to why any superhero whites out their eyes is so that people cannot identify who they are from their eye color
Is "mystery of the star sapphire" in any GL collections? Or was it just like a short 2 or 3 part filler story?
Don't most superheroes have 2-way lenses in the eye-holes of their masks so they look white from one side, but are clear on the other side? I know Spider-Man does it that way.
Batman does it to scare the bejesus out of criminals who only see soulless white eyes glaring at them from the dark. And because other types of lenses (like night vision) can drop down as well.
I would assume most do it to hide their eye color.
Tenchi stuff? Do you mean Batman can do the lighthawk wings?
Superman doesn't even need a mask
Superman has the advantage of being larger than life. He's so popular and god-like that nobody would dare suspect that he walks among them, rents an apartment in the city, and works a 9-5.
Does anyone know how the hell Green Arrow is maintaining his secret identity? Even if you put aside his distinctive facial hair, there's the whole issue of his wife the Black Canary. Oliver & Dinah Queen are officially married, but Green Arrow & Black Canary are publicly known to be a couple. Canary doesn't have a secret identity. The teeniest bit of effort in Black Canary's history should show that she's married to a man who looks sorta like the superhero she's constantly seen making out with.
I can only come up with suspension of disbelief so far. Unless everyone is completely ******ed, or someone forgot that Ollie's Identity isn't public.
At this point, Ollie's identity probably should be public. Dinah's is, and it hasn't hurt her any. Most superheroes use secret identities because they have people and interests they need to keep protected (Ma & Lois Kent, Wayne Corp and an almost supernatural air of mystery, ect). Everyone Ollie and Dinah know are superheroes, and Ollie's no longer mayor of Star City. What's the worse than could happen if his identity becomes public? Damn near all of his rogues are dead.
Oh.... Thanks for explaining to me t:
Moreso than the glasses or the hypnotic powers that might or might not be canon, that really is the key to Superman's secret identity. If some random dude saw Clark on the street and recognized him, they'd no doubt just assume Clark is some dude who happens to share some of Superman's features, just like any 6' white dude with black hair who looks like he goes to the gym. Hell, Bruce Wayne looks like Superman. Especially when Jim Lee draws him.
Clark also wears suits 2 sizes too large, slouches, and, when Superman, blurs his face at super speed a bit so it's hard to pick up on his features or get clear pictures of him.
Except the countless times he's appeared on TV in public appearances.
The idea is that he vibrates his face even in those cases.
So, he's just a large, out of focus man?
Maybe he just has Kryptonian Parkinson's.
See? Superman has a power for EVERYTHING.
At the very least his face is.
1) He doesn't blur his features as Superman. Everyone knows what Superman looks like, and it's the real deal. He blurs them as Clark, and only when someone's taking a picture of him. That way, anyone who happens to find a picture of Clark Kent on the internet or something sees someone who looks a bit different from Superman.
2) When exactly is Clark Kent ever going to be on mainstream TV? He's not an anchorman, he's a writer.
I lied, three things:
3) Lois is a public persona, but most people don't know that Clark and Lois are married. It isn't very advertised, and Lois uses her maiden name in public. I mean, can anyone tell me sans wikipedia if Diane Sawyer is married, and what her husband looks like?
