Question about the superhero au. Do the criminals and heros wear masks to disguise themselves? Bc Nico easily could tell Jason was tempest, but ppl dont know who Hades really is. So I was just wondering, sorry for the dumb ask.

It’s not dumb. I haven’t specified that detail even though I do have a rule on it.

The SPQR Team members do not wear masks. It goes hand-in-hand with the SPQR rhetoric on keeping the public’s trust. It’s also just being practical, as the very public and media-examined nature of their positions wouldn’t permit keeping a secret identity for long.

The super-villains are a mixed bag. Some do, some don’t. It largely depends on whether or not they try to maintain a life or civilian identity outside of their criminal activities. Hades does wear a mask, or uses shadows to conceal his face, because he maintains a public civilian identity as Dimitri Aidoneus, owner of DOA Records. Without a secret identity, the police and/or superheros would simply arrest him.
