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.
