We've Got a Few Questions About The Atom's Costume on Arrow

What do you think of the new duds?

In a few short weeks, Arrow will debut the super suit that Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) has been working on all season long.

But you don't have to wait until Feb. 25 to get a glimpse of his new getup, because The CW has just released the first image of Ray/Routh in costume as the Atom:

I've got a few questions about this suit.

Like, what's the purpose of a face guard that leaves half of your face exposed?

Follow up question: Why is his entire face visible? It's not like Arrow has ever tried that hard to conceal anyone's identity (remember when Ollie just rubbed green eye shadow around his face?), but at least pretend like you care, Ray.

Does this require two people to put on?

Lastly, what do you think of the Atom's suit?

(Full disclosure: is owned by CBS, one of The CW's parent companies.)

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
