What Would Superman Do?


“A masked adventurer’s costume is one of those things that nobody really thinks about. Should it have a cape or no cape? Should it be thick and armoured to protect you from harm, or lightweight to allow for manoeuvrability?  I experimented with a cloak, remembering how the Shadow would use it to misguide enemy bullets. In practice, however, I found it too unwieldy. I was always tripping over it, or getting it caught in things.”

HOLLIS MASON aka Nite Owl in his best-selling memoir Under the Hood excerpted by ALAN MOORE and DAVE GIBBONS in the original Watchmen graphic novel
