Ever since I’ve started blogging I have been told by as many as zero people that my blog is all about me and my opinions. I talk to my audience, but I never listen. I tell them stuff, but I don’t hear anything they have to say. Well, this changes today! Today, my dear readers, I use the awesome poll feature I’ve told you about earlier to settle an age old debate. Most of us, when we were kids, have spent countless hours and maybe even got into a few arguments over which superhero was the very most bestest of all. Is Spiderman’s gift for being a big crybaby as useful as Superman’s fashionable underwear wearing style? Is Hulk more emotionally unstable than Wonder Woman? Does Iron Man treat metal in a more wasteful way than Batman when making his gadgets?
The problem is, back in the day we’ve never had the power of the Internet and social media to help us rationally and conclusively resolve such arguments. Now we do. Decades of revolutionary advances in technology have finally brought us to a stage where we can answer the most elusive and urgent question mankind has been asking for centuries: Which superhero(ine) kicks the most ass of all?
I bring to you the most ultimate of all polls. Everyone has a single vote to spend on their absolute favourite superhero. You are not limited to the answers I’ve provided below, they are just to get you started. If you feel that simply voting for your top superhero cannot possibly express how incredibly amazing he or she is, you’re very welcome to voice your passion on the subject in the comments section below. Also, if your superhero(ine) is missing from the list, use the “Other” option to answer. I can see all of the “Other” answers and will add them to the voting list on an ongoing basis. And now…ready, set, vote!

Meh, of course Batman is going to win, most people don’t know enough to vote for anyone who hasn’t had a feature film based on them and Batman is the clear flavor of the month in the mass media.
I picked “other” and wrote in Animal Man. His powers are interesting, he has a family that feels real, and only truly adventurous writers ever seem to dare to approach him. After Grant Morrison’s EPIC run on the character I think most creators are just plain old too intimidated to touch him. However, there are few other characters from the “Big 2” that allow such a self-aware (or “meta”) approach to be taken… I mean, how many other Superheroes KNOW that they’re a comic book character? (well, at least prior to the relaunch)
@JoshuaCox I have to admit I haven’t read enough comic books to recognize Animal Man, but I do appreciate originality. I definitely think we should break the chain of boredom that comes with the obvious and broaden eachother’s horizon by introducing less known superheroes…
Thanks for sharing…I haven’t been aware of the Animal Man up until this very moment (my head hangs in shame). And you’re right, there are only a handful of superheros that are “top of mind”, so it’s not a surprise to see Batman, Spiderman and Superman leading the charts
@Daniel Nest@JoshuaCox I’ve been slacking on my super powers for a while now and my super powers have been downgraded to merely power (singular)…I’ve just joined the gym…again for the 6th time in my life…the goal is to upgrade my powers again. After my bike accident….I mean vampire attack….I’ve been feeling a little too mortal for my liking…so here is a warning to all who has a tendency to bite….keep your fangs for yourself or I’ll zumba your ass!!!
I’m a little disappointed, but not surprised, that Dan the Man forgot about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She’s the perfect superheroine, because she’s the least obvious one of them all. She doesn’t have any obvious superhero features, such as a cape, bat mask or a bulging, pumped torso nor can she fly. Shes’ a “simple” teenager, who happens to be the chosen one, her super powers are well disguised in a tiny blonde body, which are unleashed whenever a vampire threatens the existence of her beloved friends and family. Once in a while she developes a crush on the vampires she beats up, but who hasn’t tried falling in love with the wrong crowd. She has amazing friends who support and help her out when in need, like real friends should do. Deep down inside she wishes she was an ordinary teenager or dead, without the weight of various responsibilties such as saving the world. I identify with Buffy’s wish to be an ordinary, uncomplex person and understand the confusing paradox of being humanly fragile and super strong. She struggles with combining the role of a superheroine and that of a human being….who doesn’t!? Ups…I think I just gave away my secret identity…
@Duygu hahahahaa well, upon that long winded rant, I think we can all conclude that it’s a good thing you’re not going after the “wishing to be dead” part of the Buffy character…
@Daniel Nest nope…still want to save the world, so need to be alive…with the support of my good friends and family…nope forget family…friends I can continue to fulfill my destiny 🙂
Iron Man, clearly! He has all the cool gadgets of Batman * 10
And let’s remember how Batman, for all his dark menacing look simply refuses to kill people. What the hell?!
Tony Stark has no qualms about bringing evil terrorists to high energy projectile induced justice.
None of this mushy Bruce Wayne life sparing crap.
@LightSpeedGmng Now that’s true passion about a super hero! Not only have you voted, but you’ve spoken for your favourite with solid argumentation and thorough research. Too bad that majority vote is against you for now! 😉
