Men and their Superheroes

September 18, 2008

I was browsing the Cosmo site a while ago and stumbled upon this interesting title, “What His Favorite Superhero Reveals”.

Well, the article is really about the correlation between men’s fave superhero and the kind of personality that they may have. Too bad, there were only 4 superheroes in the list.

Here’s the verbatim version of the-guy-and-his-superhero analogy.

Who he worships: Superman
What it reveals: Superman is the quintessential “nice guy” — he’s loyal, believes that people are inherently good, and is always ready to save the day. A guy who digs the Man of Steel usually has the same traits. So, while you may not need your man to save you from a burning building, he’ll love it if you ask for his advice or help in mini-crisis — whether it’s changing a flat or settling you down after a fight with a pal. In other words? Score! But his desire to rescue people might not stop with you. He’s the type to fill his days helping his mom and doing favors for friends. If you feel like his time is monopolized by being a little too good to others, just pipe up and he’ll be responsive.



Who he worships: Spider-Man
What it reveals: Spider-Man is the underdog of all superheroes. As Peter Parker, he’s sensitive, completely responsible, and a bit nerdy. And his Spidey alter ego is pretty much the same — except for the fact that he also swoops from building to building to rescue damsels in distress. If your man relates to this cobweb-flinging fella, chances are he’s emotionally open, never late, and always feels the need to the do the right thing. The only downside: Just like Spider-Man, your guy may get so caught up in being responsible that he has a hard time being carefree. You’ll just have to show him how to loosen up…

Who he worships: Batman
What it reveals: Batman — aka Bruce Wayne — drives a badass car, dates supermodels, and is rolling in dough…so, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why he appeals to your dude. But the Caped Crusader also has a darker side — his parents were killed by criminals, and that’s why he has set out to fight the bad guys. Batman avoids getting close to most people and is sort of a loner. So, your guy may share his dangerously dashing appeal, but you may also have to work a little harder to get him to open up.


Who he worships: The Hulk
What it reveals: This superhero goes from the quiet, reserved Bruce Banner to the big, green Hulk whenever he gets pissed off. Scary, right? But no worries; this character means well, he just lets his feelings overwhelm him. A guy who tells you that The Hulk is his favorite is likely to be the type who gets caught up in emotions and may even have the occasional outburst. Here’s the bright side: You’ll never have to guess how he feels. That said, if you do sense him worked up. it may be best to give him some space until he calms down or figures out his emotions.

I got interested in one of the comments posted by one of the readers: My superhero is Wolverine, so what does that tell ya?

LOL! I want to analyze this one but it may not result to a clean and wholesome analogy. As we all know, Wolverine is a bad a** superhero! LOL!

Well, how about for us girls? I wonder if they also have a female version for this. Hmmmm… my fave is not a superhero… she is in fact a super villain. She’s no other than the famous shape-shifter…. MYSTIQUE! What do you think this means? LOL…
