I recently asked a question in a very broad way, á la "How can any super hero ever regain his/her secret identity after losing it." and TheLethalCarrot was so nice to point out it is too broad, so I changed it to the event I had in mind while asking the question, the Civil War in Marvel. It now reads as such:
On numerous occasions, especially in the Marvel universe, super heroes reveal their secret identity one way or another to the general public. Prime examples are Iron Man & Spiderman from Marvel during the events of Civil War.
What are possible ways so that the public forgets about these revelations again? To be more specific: How did Iron Man, Spiderman and others made the public forget who they were?
To clarify: I'm speaking about the comics, not the MCU
I am surprised my question was put on-hold AFTER my edit. The specific question is surely not too broad. I could remove the general sounding part. But is it really so bad that I encourage people to not only answer the specific question but tell a little more? I've seen that behavior (answering some unasked extra points for the sake of knowing) around here, so I thought nothing bad of it.
But if this kind of question is frowned upon, I will remove the remaining broadly part, I just wish for some feedback here from the community :/
