It stays on because comics.
So much for being practical, I guess.
How does Superman fly? How does he shoot laser beams from his eyes? How does Wonder Woman’s lasso work? How does Batman never get any sleep and still function? How does Booster Gold travel back in time? How does the Joker manage to speak clearly after his face was literally ripped off?
actually the cap would just hold on because of friction. it has so much area of connection. and if say you add a friction improving surface on the inside it holds on even better.
also if you ask this go bother almost every comic book artist ever how women are supposed to fight in high heels or capes
So, friction can keep it from being yanked off by anybody?
Who’s going to yank it off? I have the scripts for our first few issues in front of me. I can’t find any scenes where someone’s yanked on it. We didn’t write any.
If anyone really wants an explanation, along the lines of “some sort of spirit gum” for Robin’s mask, the answer’s likely something like “built in combs or bobby-pin-like doodads, closely parallel to the inner surface, that slide in at her hairline when she puts the mask on, and keep it snugged down close to her head.
But I don’t think anyone’s complaining because they actually want an answer…
I quite like this cover. SUPERMAN 33 by John Romita Jr.
Batgirl by Dean Trippe.
I don’t know why, but I really like seeing photos of drawings with the tools in the shot. I think it’s because when I see just the final product I stop thinking of it as something that was made, and instead look at it as something that has always existed. Seeing the drawing tools reinforces that someone drew this, which means you could make one too.
