  1. They’ll never suspect that the guy in the blue business suit, red mask, and yellow cape that just showed up is actually the guy in the blue business suit who snuck into the changing room a few minutes ago!

  2. The red mask is a clever disguise for the Green Mask, you’ve got to admit.

  3. Wow! Somebody who’s actually excited to get clothes for Christmas. I can’t believe we’re there already, Jeff. Seems like we just had Thanksgiving.

  4. “They shall call me… The Black Knight”

  5. Has anyone else noticed that his… ehem… “disguise” is going to consist of the primary colors… with a black on white tie? Maybe he should go with a different name, instead of The Green Mask (as if there weren’t enough costumed superheroes wearing a green mask).

  6. At a Party City store your lucky to find that so soon after Halloween!

  7. Maybe this guy is a hardcore cosplayer? Wait, did that come out right?

  8. He’s pulling a camo trick out of the clark kent book of disguise.

  9. Just to note, that isn’t the Green Mask, it’s one of the back-up characters, Night Bird or something like that.

  10. @Jeff: Oh yes, this guy is either a total genius whose logic is far beyond me or a total demented lunatic. Night Bird wearing what amounts to cyan, bright yellow and red makes about as much sense as the Batman toy I saw in a store the other day…. Bright fluorescent green Batman.

  11. Speaking of toys, has everybody else seen the Lord of the Rings Pez Gift Set? If you haven’t, I swear I’m not making this up. Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gollum– in Pez form!
    I’m waiting for the Eyes of Sauron M&Ms, myself. Or the 100,000 Tom Bombadollar bar.
    And by the way, I think it’s cruel to mock the poor colorblind inker. He didn’t ASK to be totally unsuited to his chosen profession.

  12. someone should tell this guy, if you wear a yellow bedsheet on tour back will get your butt kicked, not premote a sence of fear. maybe, just maybe, if you are going to call yourself the green mask (which by the way my 4 yr old nefew could come up with a better name than that!) your mask, i’m going out on a limb here, SHOULD BE GREEN! I mean COME ON! What’s next, the Red Skull’s skull will now be blue and the green lantern’s ring will be purple. Golden age of comics my eye!
