Yes, perhaps you didn’t realize it but today is National Superhero Day and that means you can dress up like your favorite superhero without it being Halloween. A recent survey from social media platform SKOUT discovered that women’s favorite superhero is Batman and that men’s favorite is Superman.
Among the survey’s other findings:
•More than half of people surveyed (53%) said Batman and Robin are their favorite superhero friends.
•19% said The Thing and Human Torch are their fave friend duo, 16% prefer Green Hornet and Kato, and 12% said the Wonder Twins make the best squad.
•When asked which superpower they wish they had, 1 out of 3 people surveyed said immortality.
•29% said the ability to fly, 22% said superhuman strength and 17% said superspeed.
•49% of people surveyed said they would pick the Batmobile if they could have any superhero vehicle.
•20% would choose Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane, 20% would prefer the X-Men’s Blackbird and 12% would pick The Green Hornet’s Black Beauty.
•57% of people surveyed said a mask is the most important superhero accessory, 19% said a cape, 14% said a ring, and 10% said a cool belt.
If you wanted to be a superhero in real life – like nearly 80% of the people in the survey – then you would need…
• selflessness [44%], no fear [37%], technology [11%] and, of course, money [8%].
