Which super hero do you identify with the most?

Asked by seazen (6113points) February 7th, 2011

I checked – it hasn’t been asked before, oddly enough.

Those of us who have grown up with comics and TV and movie super heros (can also be spelt heroes, by the way) always had one or two favourites. Mine has always been Spider-man. I like Batman, never really cared for Superman… but lately I feel more like a Hancock. Especially at the beginning of the movie.

Wasn’t there a Super Zen somewhere? I want to be just like him when I grow up.

But seriously folks, I really saw myself as Batman when I was little. I wore a towel for a cape and everything.

So far, none of them. Which I think is part of the reason I don’t really care about comics despite my nerdy nature. I do identify with Superman the least, save for a few of the really “strange”, odd ones (like Aquaman – I live in the freaking desert!).

Who’s the one that’s always saving the world but never get’s the girl? Probably that one.

Blankman—a simpleton inventor who becomes a superhero with a bulletproof costume and a very low budget.

@Sandman Superman’s Song

Tarzan wasn’t a ladies’ man
He’d just come along and scoop ‘em up under his arm
Like that, quick as a cat in the jungle
But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sittin’ around in no
Junglescape, dumb as an ape doing nothing

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see
Another man like him

Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
Even though he could have smashed through any bank
In the United States, he had the strength, but he would not
Folks said his family were all dead
Their planet crumbled but Superman, he forced himself
To carry on, forget Krypton, and keep going

Tarzan was king of the jungle and Lord over all the apes
But he could hardly string together four words: “I Tarzan, You Jane.”

Sometimes when Supe was stopping crimes
I’ll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back
On man, join Tarzan in the forest
But he stayed in the city, and kept on changing clothes
In dirty old phonebooths till his work was through
And nothing to do but go on home

Spiderman, or atleast the Ultimate Spiderman revision. Mostly because I’m a teenager and am awkward with girls

Wonder Woman! Fighting for my rights, in those dreamy, oh so sensuous satin tights.
Okay, I lied…...I admit it. I prefer pantihoes XD

Spiderman, because I’m a skinny, nerdy kind of guy.

Generic man. He used to show up at a con I went to.

JLeslie's avatar

I don’t identify with any of them. But, I really liked watching Wonder Woman and Isis.

Wonder Woman had cool stuff and was tall. I’ve always wanted to have cool stuff and be tall. <sigh>

YoBob's avatar

I don’t really identify with any of them. However, if I could make one up he would be something of a cross between Clint Eastwood (from the spaghetti western days) and Mcgyver.

You might be a redneck superhero if…

Plucky's avatar

Probably Superman. I am very polite and shy; I’m socially awkward.. I can leap over tall buildings…etc.
My naughty side identifies with Catwoman…tee hee.

gorgeousgal3's avatar

Probably Catwoman, Quiet during the day and fighting crime and saving people at night.

@noelleptc and @Rarebear – I love you. I really, really do. I was so sad when they changed Die Fledermaus to “Batmanuel” in the live-action series.

As for me, I feel like The Maxx (or, more specifically, Julie Winters although she’s not a hero any more than he is, really) most of the time.

I actually woke up to The Tick theme song as my phone alarm every day for a couple months :P

Nite Owl, from Watchmen. Over the hill, and a bit of a dork.

Rarebear's avatar

@Seelix I checked before I posted my answer, and they had to change it to Batmanuel because of copyright issues. My favorite episode of the animated series is “The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold.”

On second thought. I do resemble one of the greatest superheros ever, my dad.
