How Super Are You?

If you're a comic book fan - or just plain super-curious - take this test and find out what superhero you match the best. Hat tip to Soccer Dad for forwarding me the link.

I took it three times, giving slightly different responses on borderline questions each time, and came out with three different answers: Hulk, Green Lantern, and Spider-Man respectively. Don't know much about GL as I never collected DC comics. Spider-Man is the closest to how I see myself, though as a kid I always wanted to be the Human Torch, and would constantly daydream (and occasionally night-dream) of myself in that role.

Interestingly, when I collected Marvel comics back then, my Dad used to read my Hulk issue every month, maintaining that he saw himself in that brilliant scientist cursed with becoming a persecuted, childlike, furious man-monster. A brilliant scientist he certainly was, and he did always have something of a temper, but I don't remember him ever putting on 800 pounds and turning green...

How the heck did I end up as Superman?

I always thought of I would be closer to Spiderman...

Oh dear I'm superman too.
Jameel - I think it's because we are easy going, good natured, (attractive) and we love to help people.

That or our sensitivity to kryptonite....

Hey Elie,
I too got Spiderman, as did my good husband. I guess we're all related or something.
