I am Superman

The Tangent Universe(!) links to a Which Superhero Are You? quiz. Here are my results. I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed for a few reasons. First, I think both Batman and Spiderman are cooler than Superman. Second, Superman is a wuss who just so happened to be on a planet who’s sun made him un-wussy. In short, he’s an accidental superhero. This is in stark contrast to Batman who took only what God gave him and formed it into something altogether superior through hard work, suffering, and devotion (and a nice healthy dose of money from his dead parents). Speaking of dead parents, even though both Superman and Batman lost their parents, Superman never even knew his parents (except via a weird vision in a crystal) whereas Batman had his parents ruthlessly gunned down right before his eyes. Batman is no accidental superhero. So even though Superman is supposedly the quintessential American superhero, I find him to be a superhero more akin to the landed aristocracy of times gone past. However, it is Batman, the Dark Knight, who personifies self-determination and the rugged individualism that are the hallmarks of the American spirit.

Your results:
You are Superman

Green Lantern
Iron Man
The Flash
Wonder Woman
You are mild-mannered, good,
strong and you love to help others.

  3. bah, im 90% spiderman, then wonder woman, then catwoman. i was going for catwoman, but unfortuneatly i seriously lack the motor skills. i lack the skills to be spiderman too, but clearly being a geek that likes redheads is enough to tip the scales. but i mean, i AM a redhead, so i had to answer yes to that question.

    and catwoman is the best anyway. way better than batman. it’s cooler to be crazy and bad rather than crazy and good. 😀

He then shouted, “HOW DARE YOU RHYME IN THE PRESENCE OF CHUCK NORRIS!” and ripped out her throat.

    To prove it isn’t that big of a deal to beat cancer. Chuck Norris smoked 15 cartons of cigarettes a day for 2 years and aquired 7 different kinds of cancer only to rid them from his body by flexing for 30 minutes. Beat that, Lance Armstrong.
