Because Science

Why Doesn’t Anyone Recognize Superman?

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…Clark Kent? Yep, that’s definitely him, he’s just not wearing his glasses.

In my latest Because Science, I try to get to the bottom of why Superman’s laughable attempt at disguise seems to work so well. The comics tried to explain it away with hypo-glasses, but I think science can do way better than that. Maybe it has something to do with an inability to actually see Superman’s face.

Now how would he go about making that happen? I have an evil theory above!
