The We Love Superheroes Week is here and there’s a fun tag to go along with it!
1. Who are your favorite superheroes? (Go ahead and list up to five if you want!)
Captain America, obviously. I mean, Cap and his awesomeness are what got me into superheroes in the first place so he’ll always have a special place in my heart. Batman, but only when he’s played by Christian Bale. Wonder Woman, because Diana is #goals. The Flash (CW version of the character) – who doesn’t love an adorable nerd? And basically everyone in ‘The Incredibles’.
2. What’s your favorite superhero movie?
So, so difficult to narrow it down. I haven’t seen tons of superhero movies, but almost all of the ones I’ve seen have been amazing. I’d probably go with ‘Batman Begins’, though. Besides being a great superhero movie, it’s also a great movie overall and I have so many good memories associated with it. Runners up would be all of MCU’s Captain America movies, ‘Wonder Woman’, and ‘The Incredibles’.
3. Do you have a favorite superhero couple?
Do Diana and Steve count? ‘Cause he isn’t a superhero, but they are beautiful together. Otherwise, it’s definitely Bob and Helen Parr from ‘The Incredibles’.
4. What was your introduction to the world of superheroes?
I kind of addressed this in my answer to the first question, but I’ll just clarify: it was ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’. I’d never seen a superhero movie before and it blew me away. Steve Rogers was my new favorite hero and Bucky’s ‘death’ made me cry and so did everything about the ending. After that, I was hooked on superheroes and the MCU in particular. I’m kind of a DC girl these days, but Cap will always be my favorite.
5. If you could be any superhero for a day, who would you like to be?
I’m not good at placing myself in the shoes of fictional characters, so I really have no idea.
6. Do you have a favorite supervillain?
Megamind? 😀 I’m also rather intrigued by Eobard Thawne and Jonathon Crane and Zemo.
7. Can you think of a superhero who should get their own solo film, but hasn’t yet?
I don’t read comics, so I have no idea.
8. Do you read comic books?
9. Why do you like superheroes?
Well, it changes with every superhero. For some, like Ant-Man or The Flash or Megamind, it’s mostly entertainment value. With Captain America and Wonder Woman, it’s more about the life lessons that can be learned and the fact that they’re such strong, brilliant characters with stories that demand to be told. And, basically, the idea of super powered people living right alongside us is fascinating.
10. Have you ever cosplayed as a superhero? Feel free to share pics if you want!
I have not. But I wouldn’t be opposed to it either.
