It always struck me funny that comic heros would need nothing more than a pair of glasses to change their appearance. Enough so, that co-workers or even a close friend could not recognize them.
I actually tried this once, it was amazing! I borrowed my grandfathers glasses, went down to the nearest bus-stop and no one there had a clue as to who I was!
In the case of the Spirit, Denny Colt dons a “domino” mask to conceal his identity. I suppose the fact that he was thought to be dead keeps people from suspecting.
The Spirit was created by Will Eisner. One of the greatest and most influential creators of all time, not to mention, one of my personal Idols.
