Superhero Favorites




Seeing as this is the 2nd Superman t-shirt I've been known to wear on this blog (first one here), it may be obvious who my favorite superhero is. However, I should mention that the close runner-up is Captain America. It would appear that my taste in heroes is fairly consistent. Notice that both Superman and Captain America are generally portrayed as noble, gentlemanly, self-sacrificial, supporters of truth and justice, muscular, nice haircuts, and...other good stuff.

So, let's talk about all the superheros that were possible contenders, and why they don't make my top two:

Spiderman: too skinny, and I still haven't forgiven him for the Uncle Ben incident. He was such a bratty teenager.
Thor: his hair is longer than mine, and is kind of pretty actually. I've known a lot of girls who would have loved such thick long blonde hair. And he's kind of intimidating in general.
Hulk: scary! It's hard to tell whether he's bad or good sometimes. I really don't like excessively angry people.
Ironman: I admit it, he's hilarious, sometimes charming and often annoying, but I don't tend to get along well with fellow obnoxious geniuses.
Green Lantern: I can barely even remember this movie, clearly he made no lasting impression on me.
Batman: too emo.
Wolverine: I like him well enough, but he also tends to be kind of emo. And hairy. And I really don't like seeing wounds healing all the time.

(As is already obvious, I'm NO comic book girl, my familiarity with and description of superheroes comes only from movies and television...and guys I know explaining to me with great disdain the difference between DC and Marvel..which as far as I can tell simply means different superhero "brands.")

Which superhero is your favorite?

I must be all about emo guys because I love me some Batman!


P.S. I'm giving away a $100 credit towards a pretty new dress! I'd love for you to enter.

Hahaha! You made me laugh! I guess Superman is the best bet.. the rest can be quite moody (can't stand moody man) like Hulk and Wolverine.. who can stand that mood swing?? You look cute Rachel :)

My school's theme is superheroes this year. I'm also not really a fan of the genre, so I'm having trouble fitting all that in!

I'm not really a super hero person, but if I had to be, my favorite would be Superman! I love you colors :)

I can't be bothered with super heroes really. I find them kind of annoying. Everyone but WonderWoman which I watched as a kid. I thought she was pretty swell. Who wouldn't like to spin and spin and change your outfit into some hot boots and bustier?

Haha. I love your commentary on the super heros. :-)

Whitney Biber said...

hmm i've never really loved super heroes but my nephews LOVE them :)

Imogen said...

You're so sweet. I love this look on you so much and the inspiration behind your look is super amazing.

Inge Jane said...

Ahaha I totally laughed out loud at Batman being "too emo."

mckenzie Sant said...

hahahaha I love batman but i loved that you said that he is too emo! :) He is.

deanna@delirious-rhapsody said...

i don't do super heroes. they save you once, and they expect eternal gratitude in return. that's too needy for me.

Hahaha! I actually feel the same way about all of your descriptions of the superheroes. The only reason why I remember Green Lantern is because I just saw that movie on tv recently. Apparently another one is supposed to be coming out soon. You look adorable in your outfit by the way!

My husband would LOVE this outfit!

Ha! I love this, so cute. Love your shirt too, BTW. I'd have to say mine is Thor. Am I swayed by the handsomeness of Chris Hemsworth...yes!
Oh, and I agree Spiderman is too skinny LOL

Ginny MyNewFavoriteOutfit said...

My son is all about super heroes right now and Spider-man is his favorite, he'd be all over your shirt though :)

I don't really follow or watch super hero movies. I did see the new Superman movie though.

Lauren {at} Life.Love.Lauren said...

haha I am not a comic book girl but I agree with all your assessments! And as always...you look great!!!

Anonymous said...

you're disqualifying spiderman on the grounds that he is too skinny?? appeal. spiderman is nerdy, sincere and, well, wins for greatest superhero (hands down)

I'm a Superman girl too! Agreed on Barman, way too dark for my liking and it's like he hates life.

You look cute, Rachel! :)
I'm not really big on superheroes!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

You are so cute and tiny! I'm not a superhero fan but I do like most of the actors who've portrayed each in the movies.

Carolynn Markey said...

What about female super heros?!?!? OR CAPTAIN PLANET? You forgot captain planet. And my favorite super heros: the power puff girls

<_<

Tye said...

How cute are you...I'm not particularly much into superheros lol, but I would have to say that when my son was much younger I did like Spiderman. Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog! :)

Fun, cute outfit! Green really suits you :)

Thanks you for your lovely comment on my blog! :)

Capt. America is one of my favorites! Super man is too BLAH for me. He doesn't have much of a personality, he's an alien for gosh's sakes! Cap is, as you said, noble and true. His backstory is a sad one too, but he perseveres!

A.H. Marvel said...

Definitely not a hero, but I'm a HUGE Loki fan. Just. Feels. But anyway, if we're going for heroes, I'd definitely have to say Thor. Fantasy world are totally my thing, and I've always been a sucker for guys with long hair. He's just a really interesting character. Iron Man's another favorite. Sass-master for sure, and sure he's got some personality issues, but altogether he's a good guy and a lot of fun to watch.

Sage Grayson said...

Batman is my favorite superhero. I love it that he doesn't have any mystical powers. He's a detective. And I appreciate how he devotes his life to helping others despite the pain he's suffered.

Mary Mench said...

I gotta say I was really taken by Ironman...never got into too many superhero movies, but that first Ironman was awesome! As is your adorable outfit!

Style Journey said...

Ha ha! I love the reasons why you dislike/like each super hero. I remember the Hulk when I was a little kid (like 3 years old) and my mom used to tell me the Hulk was coming if I was getting into trouble, ha ha!

Erica said...

We think alike!! Super man wins every time, especially since Malcolm look like superman when he takes his glasses off - at church he was known as such. It might have been a reason why I started dating him ;)

a happier girl said...

I'm a superman girl, too. Captain America seems like a nice guy but no fun to hang out with. Superman seems like he'd be down for a beer and some laughs.

Lena B, Actually said...

You're so cute! I'm partial to Batman... only because he seems the most realistic. ;)
You're adorable as always! Thanks for linking up for Passion For Fashion!

Love your outfit!! Such a good idea having the pop of purple under the jeans. I'm going to steal that one!
