Inspired by Avengers movie, i would like to see, what super hero are you?

Or which, super hero do you think you're most like, or would strive to most be like?


File: 1557682645747.png (166.44 KB, 416x438, 208:219, happy shy 5.png) ImgOps Google

the one super hero i most admire, for example, is Captain America!!


File: 1557682748712.jpg (33.04 KB, 570x422, 285:211, cap shield.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

I have been pretty unanimously declared as Captain America by my friends. I even have a shield tattoo!

I try very hard to embody Steve Rogers much more than the Captain part of him. Being a good person but taking no shit.

Strive to be like Batman. But I'm most like Bruce Banner.

Can you help me?
When it comes to heroism, I'd probably be kind of cowardly and not eager to set my life on the line or take any risk.

I'd probably be open to support where I can and perhaps, if I have to perform feats of heroism, I'd have to be forced to put my life on the line, but I'd prefer to sit back and help from the sidelines.

Which Marvel/DC superhero would suit me best?


Hmm. let me think about that one.


File: 1557685736624.jpg (29.64 KB, 292x411, 292:411, tettenman.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Otherwise, this dude probably.


But I just haven't grown up with Marvel and DC, so I'd really enjoy the feedback.


Sounds a little bit like Bruce Banner. But his desire to stay on the sidelines comes from his fear of what could happen if he loses control.

While I am flattered and honoured by the proposal, I do wonder if there isn't a "superhero" around who is afraid of action for getting himself in danger as well.

stepping outside of the US, I don't think I could be anywhere close to Josuke Higashikata, but he's a cool aspiration to be like.


I'd probably be along the lines of iron man. Generally analytical and trying to find the smartest way of getting things done. Tho i'd like to do a lot more of the mass intimidation thing like batman does, so perhaps more like batman? Definitely along those scientist/engineer superhero lines tho.


There are characters like that in things. Who are scared, but fight anyway. Characters like Luigi and Courage the Cowardly dog. But most of the time in comic books, a character starts out with that trait and learns to overcome it. Mile Morales and Peter Parker were like that when they started, because they were literally kids.


How about nightcrawler as portrayed in the X-Men movies?

I don't really know enough heroes to say. The ones that I do know I don't feel like I am "like' them really.
The larger problem is most of them put themselves a little too highly, have weird nonsensical standards and convictions, and rarely seem to have that proper strugglers mindset.
Closest one I can think of off of the things that I know is probably Captain America. He doesn't seem to come off with a "I'm better than you" attitude, and is weak enough that we see him fight against immeasurable, impossible sometimes, odds, because he feels it is the right thing to do. Big bonus points for not completely bending over to law, and recognizing that sometimes the system can be wrong.

I don't know if it counts as a super hero, but Andrew Wiggin from Ender's Game.

I read a lot of those books growing up and always related to that character a lot.

Also I've related to Ayla, in Clan of the Cave Bears series a lot, but she isn't a super hero, just the main character.


I dunno, man. Superhero would imply I have some admirable, strong traits.

I suppose there's a bit of Booster Gold in that I would definitely want and enjoy the recognition that I thought came with it, even if there is true altruism too.

And I suppose there's a bit of Kyle Rayner Green Lantern in the sense that I draw and otherwise create.

If there is one to strive to be like, it would probably be Daredevil, particularly in his utter refusal to let tragedy or personal shortcomings define him or anyone else, and the absolute smackdown he can give to those that try to force a narrative of cynicism on the world.


Is there any superhero who chooses to just make people's lives better instead of fighting crime? Like growing food, making electrical power, or healing the sick? Maybe just making things more convenient for others?


not necessarily "instead of", but plenty of the superscience guys do work on various projects on the side in their civil identities to help society in the long run.
Peter Parker recently owned a very large tech company that, while he did use it to create tech for Spider-Man, created many affordable and eco-friendly devices and solutions to various world problems. And at the very, VERY least, most heroes with good publicity (as in, not widely despised by the public for reasons beyond their own control, like Spider-Man or most of the X-Men) are perfectly willing to appear for charity events, rallies and the like. It's seen fairly often.

Green Arrow and Daniel Rand, who both own multi-billion dollar coroporations a la Batman (who also counts here) also do their best when they ARE acting as CEOs to fight corruption from within and terminate potentially harmful or outright immoral dealings. It's not always the main focus of a story, since the conflict with a villain tends to be more interesting for the reader, but it is seen often.

Invincible from Image comics has on occasion failed to stop a villains' plan only to have to begrudgingly accept that the result of said plan actually benefited society in the long run and actually work along with it.


Kinda weird how people with superpowers tend to primarily help through science corporations? Not saying it's a bad thing, but like... seems there'd be way more metahumans just using simple direct methods besides beating up bad guys.


There are. It's just rarely the main focus. It'll often be like "what are they doing at the time another hero comes to recruit them for whatever is going down" types of scenes.

That and most of the superpowers most of the heroes we know have are mostly good for combat or occasionally repair and salvaging after a crisis - which they VERY often stick around for, too, or the constructive powers aren't at a high enough level that they can use it for much else. "Has plant control" is not automatically equal to "can fly around the world and instantly sprout new forests everywhere with zero tear on themselves", for instnace.

It's just a thing you see here and there if you read enough comics but is only rarely what the story itself is about.


Good tastes! I love that book. Got it as a gift from my uncle, and I've probably read it around eight times.


How is fighting crime not making people's lives better?


I'm not saying it isn't, just that there are a million more ways to help people than fighting crime and beating up bad guys. For all the ways superpowers could do that, it's shocking how many choose to fight crime.


They do, but it's just not usually the focus. I remember one Superman story where Superman decides to take one day's worth of the US's surplus food to starving nations. I'll try and find out the name of that story for you.

Also "fighting crime" doesn't always have to equal "beating up bad guys". Heroes can also "fight crime" by rehabilitating former criminals and giving them an opportunity to leave a life of crime. Or fixing the situations that lead to crime in the first place.



>Heroes can also "fight crime" by rehabilitating former criminals and giving them an opportunity to leave a life of crime. Or fixing the situations that lead to crime in the first place.
That sounds great, I'd love to see that. I'm not trying to be one of those guys who complains that superheroes are "doing it wrong", but I can't help but wonder if improving everyone's living conditions with superpowers would ultimately save more lives and cut down on crime more effectively than fighting criminals. Obviously there's the narrative element where the actiony stuff is what you tend to see printed, and also the supervillain angle that a small number of super-terrorists kill hundreds, offsetting the gain from doing something arguably more productive than fighting crime, but it's just something to wonder about.

Thanks :)


I've seen Bruce Wayne offer jobs in his factories to former henchmen, and the Flash is all about charity and helping people. But yeah, it's not usually the focus of the story because it's not very exciting. Still, it would be cool to have a story dedicated to non-violent things super heroes do to improve society.

There's another story called "Batman: Noel". It's a take on a Christmas Carol, that follows a henchman named Bob who is pressured into working for the Joker to help his sick son. It frames Batman represents Scrooge because he's developed a black and white view on criminals. So it's an intersting take on the story, as well as an interesting commentary on what could happen if Batman ever took things too far and forget what he's fighting. Not criminals, crime itself.


Doesn't Metamorpho also basically let scientists poke and prod him in every way imaginable to test out all manner of nutso theories?


I think Moony would be more fitting as Captain Taiwan, enemy of the PRC.


I'm not sure, but it sounds plausible. But if we are talking about super heroes allowing themselves to be tested for science, then nothing tops the time the Thing willingly tore off a piece of his rock skin.

I did make a Power Pony version of Epic Mount, though his apperance is long-over due for an update. (Dunno why I made his eyes and hair weird.)

I even gave him a backstory and an alternative "civilian name" (just as the MLP 2014 annual gave civilian identidies to the original PPs)
I considered making a comic about it, but like many projects in my life never got round to it.

That was frowny, always kind of grumpy Superman, though. Basically not even really Superman at that point.

Well, I guess that one Justice league cartoon also did a little bit of a grumpy Superman. But that was only when he was being messed with by lex luthor.

>Batman was trying to protect the world from what he thought was dangerous

That sounds like you, though.


Venom is a character who wants to do good, but does so somewhat recklessly and perhaps violently.  As a symbiote, he's also sometimes used by those he's bonded with to do things he wouldn't approve of otherwise, but ultimately the bond comes first.

Obviously, in real life I don't have the kind of powers to do any of the things an alien symbiote can, but I do see at least a little bit of myself in him.  More than other heroes or villains I can think of, at least.


I strive to be like Batman, but the Batman in that movie wasn't really like Batman at all. Neither was Superman. All I was saying was that Batman was given reasons to want to V Superman in that movie. It was just a dumb movie.

Superman is a great super hero, with terrible writers who cannot accept that sometimes, a super hero is great precisely because he is uncomplicated

Batman doesn't get to decide for the rest of us, and take things into his own hands.

that is why, he is a villain. he is a billionaire who does whatever he wants, treats New York City like his playground, and has the superpower of Deus Ex Machina.

He is like evil Tony Stark.

His actions are only morally justified because of writer gymnastics that would not, and do not, apply even to other super heroes.

i think, Batman is truly villainous.

A true super hero doesn't need billionaire money, or deus ex machina, or grimdark antics. A true hero doesn't just fight ridiculously evil, cartoonishly silly villains, like Batman does.

A real hero fights villains, like Lex Luthor: a billionaire who does whatever he wants, treats New York City like his playground, and has the superpower of...

...waaaaait a minute.

Sonic? the hedgehog? is this hero like you, epic?


Well.. no, but while most children grew up reading comics of X-men, Batman, Spiderman, Superman and so on, Sonic was my hero growing up.

What's your take on the movie?


Superman might be an alien, and might be ridiculously powerful, and batman might be just a person, but somehow, Superman feels the more human of the two, and the more real.

i see! that make sense c:

is there any hero you relate to though, epic? one that is most like you? Or one you aspire to be most like, too?

is that also Sonic?


Most stories go to great lengths to show how Batman and Lex Luthor are different, though.

You're right. Lex Luthor is what Batman would be like if he were evil. Also, neither of them live in New York.

They have differing ideologies, but the same goals. Superman thinks "The world is innately decent, so the job of heroism is to observer and when necessary intervene to thwart the indecent variations." Batman thinks "The world is unfair and only constant vigilance and intimidation of evil keeps the world in order.”


Peter was the older brother who is pretty mean.

Andrew is the kind but tactical one of the three, and very empathetic to the enemy.

As a long-term Sonic the Hedgehog fan, If ear the movie will be the "Sonic '06" of our time that just like Sonic '06, my heroes reputation will be through the mud all over again.

His new movie design looks like some sort of gremlin in a hairy body-suite, probably the lovechild of Princess Elise with Sonic. And I can't help but think this movie is going to appeal to a generic marketing demographics for modern young audfience than have a well fleshed out story that would appeal to a wide audience both inside and out of the original Sonic fandom.

But given Jim Carrey was just as important in the 90s as Sonic was, Jim Carrey will perhaps "carrey" the movie. While his portrayal of Dr. Robotnik is just barely like the Eggman himself, I'll probably go see the movie purely for Jim Carrey than for Sonic.

I find it hard for me to choose a particular hero I find relatable given I personally see my own life as boring and mundane.
There was a point in my life I questioned if I was the protagonist of my own life and as I grew up and live a rather rutted life as well as anxiety issues showing up around my late 20s which obliterated whats left of my social confidence I had when I was a child, it's hard to simply pick a hero from comics, movies or cartoons that have individuals with fantastic, tragic or noble lives when my own is mundane and comfortable to the point of boring and dissapointing.

If the highlights of my life was a book, it would be a boring read.

That's largely how I feel about it, too, as someone else who grew up reading Sonic comics.  Carrey definitely seems to be the highlight of the show.

They did respond to criticism such that they're changing Sonic's design, though.  Curious how that's going to turn out.

The movie will be released in six months time and Jeff Fowler made a promise on Twitter that Sonic's final design will look nothing like the trailers.

So way I see it, could mean two things:

1. Jeff Fowler will address the issue to Paramount, which they will say that to make a brand new model of Sonic and then re-record the animated CGI footage to impose onto the post-produced footage of the Sonic film will simply take  up too much time and resources before meeting the premier date in six months and will perhaps bombard Fowler with "our research shows" and "demographs" of why the current movie will appeal the most to their target audience.
When the movie finally comes out with Sonic being as ugly as he was in the trailer, Jeff Fowlers credibility as a movie director would be further fractured due to not only his name on this movie but failing to uphold his promise on Twitter.

2. It could be possible that the movie already has a better looking version of Sonic and that the trailer exclusively stars an ugly Sonic for the sole purpose of getting the Sonic fandom butthurt and garnering attention towards the movie over it. While there are a lot of critisizing  videos and reviews on YouTube giving the movie negative attention, it is still attention and publicity nevertheless which will lead to butts in seats.

Metropolis... Gotham... both look like New York to me c:

Gotham especially is a nickname for the city, so well known that even the city government calls certain things Gotham this or Gotham that!

As for the ideologies... It is unhealthy to approach the world as Batman does, as it means one is constantly looking to correct things with one's own ideology, which is a dangerous and totalitarian way to think, i think

i feel like, to consider to inherent goodness.and righteousness in each person, to consider every person's dignity, is truly important

Ohhhhh totally you, Ella, that is so you!!

...poor epic. i think, you could be like Sonic if you wanted to! But i think, how about Tails? Tails is good, yes?


I'm vaguely interested in the movie, but, it's mostly for the meme.
Same for the Pokemon movie, though I suspect that might also be actually good.

Plus, honestly, I just like Jim Carrey in movies. He's both terrible and wonderful at the same time.

I'm not actually a huge fan of the series, as far as the books go, as much as the first one. Some of the ones set after Ender's campaign are interesting, but, the prequel types are rather bothersome, some changing a lot of the circumstances that made Ender so impressive. Mainly thinking of Bean's lot on that, though.
Still interesting books, but, I kind of treat them a tad separate, honestly.


Tails is a genius with an IQ that matches Dr. Eggman and is also rather resourceful, able to build machines and the like.

I can barely use the washing machine.

I'm not saying I am dumb, just Tails is a prodigy, been to a fine european university and all at the age of 8.

I agree! Jim Carrey is so over the top that despite being a bad thing thats what makes him entertaining to watch. Kinda like a clown but without the need of colourful clothes or make-up.


That's why people like Lex Luthor challenge Superman's notion that everyone is inherently good.

Who says his intellect matches Dr. Robotnik?

Well it almost matches. Tails is capable of building robots and machinery that rivals to that of Dr. Eggmans. However because Tails lacks the megalomania and ego that Dr. Eggman has, Tails has no need to build war machines or mass-produce robots.

Sonic Adventure 2 being an example given Tails pilot a mech that functions a lot like Dr. Eggmans mech at the time.


I think if they were equal or close to equal, they would have an easier time beating him than they do. Tails has never built something like Metal Sonic.

Well part of the whole shebang with Sonic and Co is a deep distrust of robots, so it's not a surprise that they haven't made a Metal Sonic.


File: 1557721884374.png (640.7 KB, 1008x403, 1008:403, What I Expected.png) ImgOps Google

As I said, Tails lacks the megalomania and ego that Dr. Eggman has.

Both Dr. Eggman and Tails are capable of building robots. But Dr. Eggman goes as far as making factories that mass produce his robots to serve as his own personal work force to construct more factories until he has places like Scrap Brain Zone, Metropolis Zone or other machine-industrial zones that allows his own personal empire to mostly be automated by machinery as he makes the vital decisions for it.

Tails could potentially do all that but does not have the same motivations to do so as Dr. Eggman does. But when he does invent a gadget or a device that opposes Dr. Eggmans designs it is usually very efficient given it exploits the flaws of the automated hierarchy of Dr. Eggmans systems.

As much as Sonic Lost World is not one of my favorate modern Sonic games, it's a good example given Tails is reluctant to team up with Dr. Eggman. Sonic reasons that Eggman knows the Extractor and Tails seem to finally hit puberty as he was rebellious over this decision. Tails made one error in judgement when it came to Eggmans robots but that still doesn't make him inferior in intelligence to Eggman.

Later on he gets roboticized but was able to reverse the effects and was able to shut down the Extractor with ease, just as he said he could.

Tails was however capable of repairing the robot Gemerl. Gemerl is the "reincarnation" of sorts of the gizoid known as Emerl.

Emerl was this ancient, yet extremely advance super-fighting robot. Like Metal Sonic it was capable of learning and adapting skills but unlike Metal Sonic was capable of learning a wide range of skills from various opponents and had limited transforming capabilities to adapt with weapons and mutations of his targets.

When Emerl was destroyed, Dr. Eggman made Gemerl from his leftovers and Gemerl nearly destroyed ewverything until Tails found him and repaired him to be nice.

2 is extremely unlikely. They would not risk potentially taking the movie with a fake ugly design just to annoy Sonic fans.

What's more than likely happening is that when people reacted to Sonic, he lied and said they would fix it, but isn't going to change anything.

I don't think megalomania has anything to do with it. Let's look at this. According to the Sonic Wiki, Dr. Robotnik has an IQ of 300. ...Which isn't how IQs work, but ok, lets say that's what it is. This means that Dr. Robotnik is as smart as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking combined. How could an 8 year old possibly come close to that?

>How could an 8 year old possibly come close to that?

Technically speaking, IQ is adjusted for age.  It's not something that's meant to go up or down any significant amount over time.  You could say that Tails has an equal IQ and thus is as smart as Robotnik.

It's a bit weird, but we're already in a world of talking anthro animals and robotic armies and magic emeralds.


That reminds that I have a distaste for news articles that discuss kid geniuses, only 6 and already smarter than X or Y.

Call in when they've submitted a peer reviewed groundbreaking paper on a tough subject.

I believe it could be the later then. Fowler will probably address the issue with PAramount but I doubt anything will happen.

Tails could be a "child prodigy", in Sonic Unleashed Tails is friends with a university professor. I wouldn't be surprised at al if Tails attended Spagonia University at one point despite his age.

I also believe that super-human like mutations could be more common in Sonic's kind (for the sake of conveniance, let's call them "mobians") than it is for the humans they share their world with.
Afrter all, Sonic isn't just super-fast but has an unusual colouring for a hedgehog. Tails is born with a twin-limb defect that impossibly doubles as a rotor function.


Booster Gold is a man from the future who went back in time, thinking that with future tech it would be smooth sailing to impress people and become a star by being a Superhero. He spends as much time on public relations and sponsorships as on heroics and is a bit of a goof, but he IS a hero at the end of the day.

Kyle Rayner is one of many of the Green Lanterns from Earth. The power they have is owning a ring that can create solid light constructs out of their imagination. And where most of the other Green Lanterns are soldiers and will imagine things like practical weapons or such, Kyle is an artist and usually has more whimsical, out-there constructs to solve his problem, often to the point of being cartoony.

Eh, I am not that badass. Or blind, for that matter.
Dang. That's a lot of rent.

I always thought Gotham was meant to resemble Chicago or Pittsburgh while Metropolis was supposed to resemble New York City.


Detective Pikachu was fun.


To me, Gotham reminds me more of New York or Chicago during the Prohibition era, but with some modern technologies and culture to ground it in the present.

Could I choose a stand power from Jojo's instead? I mean, the characters in that series are not exactly superheroes as their goals tend to be of a far more narrow scope, but I bet some of them could be super heroes.


Bean's story was actually what got me started. I think I read almost all of Beans story before I picked up Ender's.

Glad to hear it! I had to postepone watching it, sadly, because my other sister's flight was canceled. I'll be checking it out tomorrow.
I'm not meaning to suggest it was bad or anything. I quite enjoyed the book. It's just that it takes away from a number of Ender's achievements.
One of the biggest ones being his team, apparently, was hand-selected by Bean, who's also apparently about as smart as Ender to begin with. Less impressive that he turned a bunch of misfits and rejects into an effective squad as a result, as he was basically given a direct advantage there.
I still enjoyed the story, but, I've taken to compartmentalizing it. Otherwise, it kind of messes up Ender's growth in a lot of ways for me.

Yea I can see where you're coming from with that. I think I'm just used to reading stories with lots of characters, or semi to main characters, so I've gotten used to judging them based on their own merit.

Y'know, I'd really like to see Hirohiko Arak make his own "What if" comics for Marvel and DC.

Like, instead of superheroes, instead of wearing costumes they were Stand Users?

For example, I imagine Peter Parker's stand as four spiders that crawl up and down his body.
When he wants to climb up walls, the spiders can be seen on the back of his hands and feet as he climbs. And when he wants to shoot webs, two of the spiders position themselves on his wrists.

Having four spiders crawling around his body they can look out for him and alert him of danger he cannot see.


Tony Stark was never that smart
he just had a stand


Justice League would all have stands... except for Batman who is a master of the Ripple.


Weren't we talking about super heroes? Why can't I understand a word any of you are saying all of a sudden?


You should watch. It's basically a fusion of anime and western comic books.

I'm going to flip the prompt a bit and say Magneto. I've always strongly identified with villains and heels in general, and he was one of my favorite X-Men characters when I was a kid (I even had a foil Magneto card that I wasn't allowed to look at--my parents thought it was too valuable for me to get my grubby mitts on, because it came in a hard case).

You don't know Iron Fist's backstory?

Well, he was a rich white kid who's plane crashed into a magical Kung Fu land. He lived there for several years learning magical Kung Fu until one day he earned the right to fight a dragon to the death. He won and he got magical kung fu hands.


See, I think he'd be The Flash. That would be Star at his happiest. He seems to always want to be in ten places at once.

Baby sneks are cuter than baby humans IMHO.


You have to observe them for a few minutes. It's not so much that they look cute upon first glance, it's that they will be sitting there with this pondering face when all of a sudden, some mundane thing they see makes them super happy and they get the biggest smile and start giggling like mad.

It's like, that just a blue shirt, why is it making you so happy? But they are just so infatuated with it and it's kind of hilarious to watch, and then it makes their smile a little cute.

Or what I find to be cute in a "puppy antics" sort of way, is when mom or dad is turned around and someone stops near their cart, baby starts chucking items from its own cart into the neighbors cart like it's trying to collect all the points.

Also, I really want to boop that snoot
