Why does Atom-Smasher wear that mask?

Is it to protect his secret identity as Albert Rothstein? Is it to honor his godfather, the Golden Age Atom, who wore a similar mask?


Apparently he wears it to hide the fact that he doesn't have a mouth on his face. Instead, his mouth is located somewhere along his inner left thigh, if the placement of that dialogue bubble is any indication.

Could be worse.

Does he even have a secret ID? He's over 7 feet tall even as a civilian, so it's not like he keeps a low profile.

See, this is when a dick joke would have been warranted.
