Could You Spot Superman in Times Square If He Was Standing Right in Front of You?

     March 17, 2016


Clark Kent has long masked his true identity of Superman by using a simple gray suit and a pair of eyeglasses. It’s done the trick for decades, but comic book readers, TV viewers, and movie-watchers alike have often laughed about how silly that solution is. Surely that mild-mannered reporter with the square jaw, steely eyes and well-coiffed ‘do who showed up at the same time as Superman is Superman.

But as Batman v Superman star Henry Cavill has shown, maybe Clark Kent never needed the glasses at all. Cavill recently hung out in New York City’s Times Square, surrounded by building-sized images of his on-screen persona, and yet no one even approached him, let alone identified him. He even wore a Superman shirt emblazoned with that famous ‘S’! (It means hope or something, right?) I mean, this isn’t Where’s Waldo?

See if you can Spot the Superman in NYC’s Times Square:

Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman #WhoWillWin #Superman
