    Superman also wore his hair differently as Clark. And there’s various other explinations as to why nobody ever figured out he’s Clark Kent. The best is that he slouches and wears loose fitting clothing so he looks shorter and fatter than Superman and he modulates his voice to sound differently while appearing to be a bumbling reporter. I’ve also read that at one time it was suggested that among his powers was hypno-vision to make folks think he wasn’t Superman. Another claim was he could compress his spine so as to physically be shorter than Superman. But the best explination comes from his best known villian. Luthor appearently one time had a computer created to deduce the secret identity of Superman. It concluded who Superman should be and Luthor dismissed the idea believing no one with the Man of Steel’s powers would want a weaker appearing identity. Basically Luthor’s saying nobody wants to believe Clark is Superman.

    I thought I read another that said when he was dressed as Superman that he’d vibrate slightly, blurring his appearance slightly. I might be mistaken though.

    Ive always thought that the most unbelievable thing about the whole Superman story is the concept of a ‘mild mannered reporter’
