  2 stars for the Laughing Mask getting a downgrade!!

Cover Me - The Purple Mask is fighting Nazis clad in pink??!!

Credit Due - I would love to know why the costume/name change??

Pointer - Hmmm....the Purple Mask likes to point his finger as he runs...

Please Hold - So, did Bellos rig all of the house phones? Because we see at least two!!

Moat - That's some man cave that the late Mr. Swabert had!!

'Nuff Said - "Poison gas! Just as I thought!"-Purple Mask

  Huh, "Purple Mask" seems like a rather lame change from "Laughing Mask".

With these flimsy stories, I think the number one thing a character could have going for it would be a striking, immediately recognizable theme. Think Batman, Superman, Human Torch. Laughing Mask was WAY more striking and recognizable than "Guy With A Purple Hat"

Laughing Mask episode 1 even had some pretty great panels featuring the mask.
