Superman Himself Proves That Glasses are a Sufficient Disguise



Henry Cavill aka “The Best Superman we’ve ever had, so suck my dick, Man of Steel-haters,” was tired of the criticism that Clark Kent’s glasses are an insufficient disguise, and decided to perform a social experiment regarding secret identities and the art of hiding in plain sight.

"Just a few small touches and I'm off to the Daily Planet!"

Cavill hung out in Times Square while wearing a Superman shirt and claims that not a single person recognized him. No, he wasn’t wearing glasses, but he is currently featured on multiple gigantic advertisements in Times Square, in which he is also wearing a Superman shirt (and cape, and uniform), and no one batted an eye.

Least of all, Batman, who has no eyes.

According to Cavill, he was approached twice: once for directions to Grand Central Station, and once to be told that photographs weren’t allowed in a certain area. Neither situation made any mention of Cavill’s celebrity or superhero status. Cavill posted a video to his Instagram stating “Dear doubter, the glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman.”
