That stream of thought goes a lot into MAN IN THE MASK. It’s the idea of being very street level. Of being human, and going up and beyond what most think you can do. That is Tommy Franklin’s life. He’s not a masked man pretending to be an ordinary man. Nor is he just a guy that assumes another identity when he puts on a mask.
He’s more than just both.
He’s a man that puts on a mask and does his best to be a servant. A helper to those around him. So in truth, he’s not that much different with or without a mask. He’s a man in a mask. And whether or not he’s hanging out in flannel or a utility belt, he’s the same guy trying his best for whatever situation.
And he does it all with a smile on his face.
