That's the difference between the DC and Marvel Universe. For the most part Marvel's superheroes let everyone one know who they are. In the DC universe the secret identity seems much more important.
Actually that's a really new development. It used to be the other way around.
The other way around? So, you mean for the most part, DC characters let everyone know who they are? What the fuck?

Or, were you just talking about Marvel?
He's talking about Marvel. Spidey, the Avengers, the X-men and Daredevil all had secret IDs. The first generation of Marvel's Silver Age were pretty traditional in that respect. Hulk was discovered to be Bruce Banner early on. Don Blake more or less faded into the background as Thor became more Asgard oriented. DD (1994) and Iron Man's (2002) revelations are recent. The status of Cap's secret ID has yoyo'd back and forth a few times. With world wide memory wipes erasing it more than once. Not sure when the Pyms went public. Might have been Jan's wedding to Yellowjacket.
