Being a big superhero fan from my youth (and since my wife is visiting her mama and I’m all alone right now) I’ve been entertaining myself by watching my DVD’s of the old George Reeves Superman show and Batman the Animated Series. A question that I’ve had for some time came to mind…why do superheroes wear underwear over their pants?
I know that sounds like a silly question, but its one of those things that I’ve never understood. Even as a kid I would ask my parents that. (My grandfather used to tell me they were swimming trunks in case they had to go swimming…but that doesn’t explain why they have them OVER their pants). Is there a reason for it?
