Having an alter ego or a secret identity is
the norm for many fictional superhero characters. Alter egos are their names or
other personas that conceals their superhero identities. It’s the other side of
their lives for when they're not in their roles of heroes, crime fighters,
saviors and peacekeepers. After all, they cannot remain on full duty all the
time hence the need for an alter ego so that they could somehow live a normal
life away from fighting crimes and catching criminals.
There are many other reasons, aside from
trying to blend in with the normal folks, why many prefer to keep dual
identities. It is a known fact that fighting crime and locking up the bad guys
could seriously make a superhero’s list of enemies to become a mile long. There’s
no doubt out that these villains would seek revenge of some sort against these
superheroes and their loved ones. To protect their anonymity, many heroes opt
to wear costumes when they are off doing good. Masks are the most popular
accessory. They even change many of their mannerisms to prevent anyone from
forming a link to their real identities.
some ways, heroes with alter egos make them more relatable to their fans. The
thought of these strong and famed individuals living ordinary lives become a
source of inspiration for many with thoughts of anyone can be a hero despite
whatever background they are from. Can you match the superheroes with their
