If you could be like any fictional charcater when you grow up/would like to swap lives with, who would you be like? why?

Even though he is is the antagonist in the story, I would be similar to Ellsworth Toohey from Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. Instead of having vast knowledge in a single field, he has little snippets from multiple fields. He brings certain aspects of life that people dont usually look at to the general population’s attention. He makes a lot of money for doing small, separate tasks and gives a lot to charity. He is very eccentric, and has a very good sense of humor. Everyone looks up to him.

i would like to be like Odysseus. who wouldn’t want to be a legendary war hero who goes on many adventures and gets all kind of tail before reconquering his kingdom and his hot loyal wife? he is constantly referred to as the wisest, strongest, manliest man that ever manned the man out of a man. sacker of Troy, killer of monsters, seducer of gods, what a beefcake

King Solomon: Then I would have the power of the gods, not to mention I would know if he was real or not.

If that is not adiquite, I would switch with Death. That would be interesting, and if not her, then Dream, and if not him, then The Watcher, and if not him, then Spider Jerusalem, and if not him… then… Koschei the Deathless

If I can’t be any of them, then my final two answers would be Wolverine, then Doctor Xavier.

Basically, anyone who isn’t me.

My favorite fictional characters are all tragic. :(
But if I must answer, oh you know it…Buffy. The TV version, not the movie version.
