There was an interesting explanation for The Phantom’s lack of visible pupils cited on Lee Falk’s Wikipedia page …
“In the A&E Network’s Phantom biography program, Falk explained that Ancient Greek stone busts inspired the notion of pupils of the eyes of “The Phantom” not showing whenever he wore his mask. The old Greek busts had no eye pupils, which Falk felt gave them an inhuman, interesting look. It is also probable that the look of “The Phantom” inspired the look of what has today become known as the “superhero”."
Wouldn’t mind seeing that episode of ‘Biography’ again.
