I just wanted to know why people felt the need to dress up in order to help people. I know the likes of Stickman manage okay without the aid of spandex so what is the point? 1. Is it to strike fear into criminals? Do you really think a fancy dress costume will do this? 2. Is it to reasure the local population you are looking out for them? In which case why not try a uniform like the guardian angles? 3. Is it to raise awarness of a specific issue. Such as Terrifica or people running a marathon for charity? 4. Is it because you just want to imitate your comic book heroes? I don't mean to offend I am just interested in personal motivation for this kind of thing. Cap
