Superman’s Clark Kent disguise might be more effective than you think.

People often make fun of the fact that no one can recognize Superman when he puts on his glasses and becomes Clark Kent. It’s just a pair of glasses, right? Not according to this study, which actually tested whether glasses interfere with people’s ability to match two identical faces. The result? Glasses are actually a pretty good disguise, causing subjects to think the same face with and without glasses was two different people. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… science!
