Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Unlike the Jim Carrey film, the comics, especially when they started, were INSANELY cynical and mean-spirited. Most characters were corrupted by greed, power, and selfishness in a already CrapsackWorld.

Added DiffLines:

** Well, sort of. One character follows the logic of shapeshifting to its end, using the mask's powers to make him look and sound completely normal. Given the mask's established personality, it's possible the MushroomSamba that ensues is the mask's revenge for being stifled.
