backstory and history

In the DC universe, they've gotten around the problem of superheroes testifying in masks.  They passed a Constitutional amendment.

Hey, that works -- whatever gets into the Constitution is the Constitution.

It's the Twelfth Amendment.  Which in our universe deals with some details of how the president and vice president get elected.

The thing is, it was passed in Thomas Jefferson's presidency, owning to the mess that was his first election.  If this was passed back then, they've had superheroes a long time in the DC universe -- and had them catching crooks, too.
