Definition: The Clark Kent Effect

Who knew?!

Apparently, there’s already a definition of The Clark Kent Effect (when geeky characters remove their glasses in order to become tough/fight crime).

I suppose that’s as much proof as I’ll ever need that I have no original thoughts.

  1. Related variation: the martial arts movie schtick that the more clothing a character removes, has shredded, or ripped off during a fight, the tougher that character becomes.
    Strong use of the Clark Kent Effect in Mark Sheppard’s character in Battlestar Galactica (lawyer, the last four episodes of season 3).

        (Also, if I don’t take off my glasses, they are in danger of being damaged….or, at the very least, will have noseprints on them. That’s not cool.)
