I’m not sure what issue this panel comes from, as I found it perusing the wonderful series of tubes that compose the Internet. But what I really want to know is, ‘who are these people that Superman buys his very specific glasses from?’ I always thought that he just went to the store, in disguise, and just bought some glasses. I mean, he couldn’t go to an eye doctor, because then he’d have to take off his glasses, and *poof* the doctor knows he’s Superman. Also, I might be less inclined to mock the whole secret identity thing know that there’s “science” involved. If Superman had his glasses built to such exact specifications that it takes a day to make them, then me must have spent a long time researching this. But back to the “who are these people” issue. Can they be trusted? Are they a secret society of glasses makers? Do they keep Superman’s identity a secret because there was glasses maker/patient confidentiality laws? Might these people live far away from Metropolis, and have never seen a picture of star reporter Clark Kent?
These are all very important questions. Grant Morrison should start answering these in a new story right away.
