Masking Strengths

Do you ever wonder about why superheros hide behind masks? Okay, I know, in part it is so that the villans don’t know who there are underneath, which could jeopardize their roles as heroes.  Another way to look at it is that it is their way of staying safe, of protecting themselves from attacks on […]
