I got tagged by Alister to take part in this memetic survey about superheroes, the comic book kind.

Suped Up: The Post-Human Quiz


If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? (Assume you also get baseline superhero enhancements like moderately increased strength, endurance and agility.)

I'd like the hypnotic and mentalist powers of Mandrake. Then at least I'd understand what is going on in those Derren Brown-shows. Or maybe the language-skills of Cypher.

Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?

When I was younger, I really liked Kitty Pride.

I'm also a bit embarassed of the reasons I bought Gen 13... Caitlin Fairchild.

Then you have other comic book characters like Francine from Strangers in Paradise and Death from the Sandman universe.

Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you hate?

I always thought those Green Arrows and Lanterns and Rings were boring.

OK, here's the tough one. What would your superhero name be? (No prefab porn-name formulas here, you have to make up the name you think you'd be proud to mask under.)

Like Martin Wisse I immediately thought of Worker's Hammer. But I think Naxal Lyte sounds kinda cool for a superhero.

For extra credit: Is there an 'existing' superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?

No. But I've liked these very much:
Night Thrasher
Strong Guy
Cypher

Pass it on. Three people please, and why they're the wind beneath your wings.

Vidar Lund reads loads of comic books, and as a librarian should be able to say something interesting about them.
Fru Lur Sur has shown an interest in comic books, and I'd like to know what she learned from those she borrowed from me.
Bjarke should also freshen up his blog a bit.

Æsj, har du hoppa over til engelsk att? Dette gadd eg ikkje lesa, skriv norsk!

Det var ein skotsk kamerat av meg som utfordra meg i einslags blogg-sisten. Det kjem vel noko engelsk innimellom.

Kitty Pride...namnam. ehh...jada. Men kvifor liker du ikkje Grønne Lykter/lanterne-folka? Eg føler meg alltid tryggare når eg tenkjer på at det finst (relativt) små, grøne menn som flyg rundt om i universet og passar på. Nesten som Sølvsurfaren - som er min store helt! the Silver Surfer rockar kåken! Han har jo det tøffaste "kostymet"/formgjevinga av dei alle, og kven andre surfar som han?

Jerven (Wolverine) er jo òg ein helt, og kva med Edderkoppen? Ingen sans slår Edderkoppsansen!

taps sa...

Edderkoppen er den mest irriterande av alle superheltar, iallfall innanfor Marvel-universet. Måte på sjølvrettferdig, sutrete og feig fyr skal ein leita lenge etter. Supermann er sjølvsagt verre, men djupt skal det verkeleg innsats til for å nå.

Punisher fortener å verta nemnd. Særleg pris set eg på miniseriar der Punisher gjev alle andre Marvel-heltar solid deng (er det ikkje Punisher kills the Marvel universe?).
