I’m the guy that which does Love and Capes.

It was the glasses that always threw me off…
It’s actually surprising how often celebrities/authority figures are reckoned to be taller than they actually are. Some of it is camera trickery (such as anything with Tom Cruise), but much of it is simple expectation; they’re “bigger” than us, so we expect them to be, well, bigger than us.
It’s probably the hair/glasses combo. You notice, every time he changes into his costume, he musses up his hair. The exact same way, every time? It’s no wonder no one connected the dots.

Funny how Abby initially had the same reaction. Hope they don’t faint as well.
