It always bothered me that no one could see the resemblance
@Weeee, No you don't understand they look so dissimilar! Superman has a little curl in his hair and Clark Kent wears glasses. They look nothing like each other!
@Weeee, Honestly, if Clark Kent wore bifocals, then I could see how it could be hard.
@Weeee, a scientific explanation for it is that clark kent keeps his social interactions limited to people who suffer from prosopagnosia, a rare brain disorder that prevents people from recognizing faces. They rely on other ways to recognize people, like sounds, smell, hight, etc. However, in the comics it was explained that superman focuses a hypno-beam through his glasses into people's eyes, preventing the from recognizing him.
@Boston, whaaaa?? That's crazy
@Weeee, it's another one of supermans unlimited powers, he is subconsciously telepathic and this ability is amplified by the glasses. His own fears of being found out are influencing people to believe he is not superman. They talked about it in one of the comics but only after they were called out for the weak costume.
@NotJesus, To be fair have you ever had a friend that constantly wears glasses suddenly wear contacts?
@skydive mango, it was also told that he slouched to look shorter and rarely talked to anyone who didn't talk to him
@Weeee, yeah as HellboyPerlman said, he took acting classes so he could learn to play Clark Kent as a slouching, soft voiced whimp. He looks smaller than he is because of this so no one would expect him to be superman, more to the effect of "that scrawny guy is actually superman??"
@Weeee, Did you ever watch New Adventures of Superman? There was an episode where a guy comes back in time, kidnaps Louis Lane and spends a good 5 minutes ranting at her about how insanely stupid she is for never catching on that Superman is Clarke Kent. It was funny.
@NotJesus, also superman is able to alter his bone structure in his face so it actually looks like two different people
@Nellybert , I also heard before that he can vibrate his face, causing a weird disconnect in peoples brains where he looks normal but not the same as superman due to the super high frequency vibrations or something stupid like that in one of the comics
@Weeee, I've never heard of these other powers, maybe precrisis when he was super OP. Generally he has ways of fooling people. The glasses change his eye color, he slouches to look a good bit shorter, wears very baggy clothes to look skinnier, and acts like a wimp or coward, and sometimes a clumsy fool to trick them. Lex Luthor figured it out early on, but he refused to believe it. He didn't think any sane man would be able to work as hard and as many hours as Kent and still be able to be Superman, and I'm sure a lot was because Kent is such a wimp.
@NotJesus, it's more the way he holds himself
Nothing a little heat vision lobotomy can't fix am I right?
I think superman has the look of the average muscular white man in that universe. And the artists poking fun by simply saying all built white men look the same lol
He should have used a dark mask that only covered around his eyes. Amateur.
Click yes, what's the worst that can happen?
