THE ABSURDITY OF SUPERHERO COSTUMES

Ok let's talk about some absurd superhero costumes. We are supposed to believe that Superman is unidentifiable because he wears glasses, and Green Lantern as well because he has on an eye mask. Supergirl wore a wig, so does this mean that if Superman had a band aid on his face he would be unrecognizable?

'Hello Lois.'

'Who are you???'

'I'm sorry-let me take off this band aid'.

'Oh! Superman! I didn't recognize you with that band aid!'

People in the comics world seem to be suffering from some kind of facial recognition brain disorder. The worst is Wonder Woman. She looks the exact same as Diana Prince but no one knows she's Wonder Woman? WTF?

A really absurd costume is Yellow Jacket's:

Another absurdity is why superhero chicks find it necessary to stick out their butt when they fight. The men don't do that.

Do I have to explain why this would be self-defeating? Yeah, I'm gonna go fight crime and wear an elaborate opera getup. It would be difficult to just sit down in something like this much less fight. Criminy.

What about Arsenal:

Dude has a metal arm, which should weigh a ton even if it's made out of the lightest strong metal titanium-wouldn't he get scoliosis from something like this pulling on one side of his spine???

And how does the THING even go to the bathroom? Does someone help him wipe? Cause....
