There's plenty of room for fantastical. Even as a kid it didn't make sense for a multibillionaire on TV to be wearing a mask that covered half of his face. Everyone would know him.>>118367479>You know there's hard masks, right?
Sure, I'm not saying *all* masks or secret identities are ineffective, but it just depends on the character's identity outside of the mask, and how effective the mask is. But they really need to be more of a nobody for it to make sense. Miles Morales is a nobody high school kid, and the second Spider-Man, his secret identity makes sense. Peter is now formally the head of a global company that makes "Webwear," who used to prominently take photos of Spider-Man no one else could obtain, and always disappears on people during trouble. At least Dr. Strange is masking it with a spell, but come on.
Jim Gordon really can't tell THIS is his daughter, from five feet away in good lighting? Maybe if she was fighting in Coast City and they weren't interacting every 5 minutes.>No, not really, it's the same tech, the only difference is how fast you can process the data, I'm saying this as someone who works with computers for a living.
I work with computers for a living too, and I work in Las Vegas, where their facial recognition on the casino floor is unparalleled and will identify a card counter to be escorted out by security before he makes it 10 yards in the front door. So. And considering the tech, we're talking about a world where a company can install a chip into a spine to make someone's legs work again, or fly to space/other galaxies on a day trip. But we can't figure out Bruce is Batman?>Considering Wayne's position, it's not weird at all for him to not always be at the office.
But, never? How long is he out of contact when the JLA is on Apokolips or some other planet?
