Jeffrey is wearing the Shock Collar this morning!

Today’s question: Today is National Underwear Day and according to comic book editors, the trend of wearing underwear over your clothes as a Superhero started way back in the 1930’s with heroes and villains alike wearing their skivvies to battle it out. Names you may…. or may not remember: Squirrel Boy, The Notorious Looker… and of course, how could we forget French toast Man.

Well according to the comic book legends, all of these characters “under” apparel were based on one particular occupation. Tell me – what job inspired the original Superhero costume?
