Mysterio-ish Guy

The comics and cinematic adventure worlds are full of guys wearing helmets they cannot possibly see out of- the "bucket heads."  There is something so compelling and impowering, at least to our small boys, about covering up your whole head.  No matter that the actors playing those Power Rangers and Clone Troopers can't see a damn thing and are drowning in their own sweat.  Sure, the "real" guys would have a helmet full of high tech electronics and air conditioning...but it's still a bucket.  Or in the case of one of Spider-Man's more implausible foes, Mysterio, it looks more like a fishbowl.  And of course he's got a cape.  And plenty of muscles.
