What’s wrong you ask? The mask, in itself, wasn’t a protective covering but a costume mask to scare off people. Yep.

Because he’s the hero Peshawar deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So they’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dank Fright.
