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?
