TV Network The CW has released a series of images of ‘superheroes’ from its TV shows all wearing surgical face masks, with the tag line “real heroes wear masks.”
The characters wearing the masks and pushing the coronavirus ‘prevention’ measure include the protagonists from Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Stargirl, Supergirl, and Superman & Lois, and even the furry blue thing called Beebo.
Superman is an alien who can fly through space and does not breathe oxygen, so one can assume that he is wearing the mask to set an example to us mere mortals.
Early this week, Delta Air Lines made news after a plane headed to Atlanta circled back to its gate in Detroit, delaying takeoff. The crew was returning to expel two passengers who had been unwilling to follow a new but quintessential coronavirus rule.
They had refused to don masks.
That transgression is the latest addition to a bevy of infractions that can get you booted from an aircraft — even before contagion racked our world. Those no-nos vary wildly in severity and how often they’re enforced, but the theoretical gamut is wide: from a joke about, say, hijacking, to smoking a cigarette … all the way to more serious acts like transporting illegal contraband like guns or drugs.

“You look bada** in a face mask,” Surgeon General Jerome Adams told Donald Trump on Thursday as the US president shifted his tone on wearing masks.
Donald Trump avoided being photographed in a mask for months, but abruptly changed his stance in July as a second wave of the coronavirus hit the United States.
Adams, who was appointed by Trump in 2017, was relaying a message from the president’s supporters in Miami, whom he met with a few weeks ago.
He made the comment during a roundtable at the American Red Cross headquarters in DC on collection of plasma for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
Trump toured the headquarters ahead of the meeting, wearing a mask as he watched a recovered COVID-19 patient donate plasma. The president also encouraged Americans to wear a mask in crowded places and wash hands.
Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate and supporter of President Donald Trump who pointedly refused to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, has died after contracting COVID-19, his website said on Thursday.
Cain, 74, learned of his diagnosis on June 29, nine days after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he and many others crowded together without wearing face masks aimed at preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus.
He spent most of July in an Atlanta-area hospital.
After Dr. Anthony Fauci’s poorly thrown first pitch during the Washington Nationals’ home opener on Thursday, the doctor was seen wearing his mask under his chin while sitting right next to two people.

“Thanks for the lesson doc!” tweeted a former NYT reporter.
A new edition of InStyle magazine features Dr. Anthony Fauci on its cover.
Fauci, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head who also sits on the president’s coronavirus task force, appeared on the cover of the magazine’s digital edition last week where he addressed rumors of his contentious relationship with Trump.
“Right now, with all due modesty, I think I’m pretty effective. I certainly am energetic. And I think everybody thinks I’m doing more than an outstanding job,” Fauci told the magazine, adding he cannot be fired from his role by the president.
The cover, which reads, “The Good Doctor,” features Fauci sitting in a lounge chair next to a swimming pool while wearing sunglasses.
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump visited with wounded soldiers and front-line medical workers Saturday while wearing what – for him – is an unusual accessory: a mask.
“I’ve never been against masks,” the president said, “but I do believe they have a time and a place.”
Trump, who has been criticized by public health officials for not wearing face coverings in public, donned a dark navy blue mask with a gold presidential seal emblazoned on the side during his trip to Walter Reed.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and members of the Secret Service also wore masks during the visit that lasted less than an hour.
