    So much for the Man of Steel. What about the Woman of Kleenex®?

    That is the most logical explanation I have ever heard since heros started wearing pjs.

    The “briefs over tights” look was based on traditional circus acrobat costumes from the 1930s.

    As Larry Niven wrote, when Clark Kent was a child he may not even have known that objects have surfaces.

    Y’know, Clark does seem to tip his glasses out of the way whenever he needs to use his vision powers while incognito…

    I think the underwear outside comes from Circus performers and the way they wore their tights.

    Traditionally, Superman’s x-ray vision isn’t passive; he has to concentrate. The same is not true of Alec Bings, so I wonder if he needs help getting dressed.

    Superman is called the Man of Steel, right? Steel rusts if you get it wet. So he wears his underpants outside of his tights so there won’t be rust stains.
