The Friday Question – Superheroes

By Mike

February 29, 2008 Features Questions No comments

Later this morning I have a review coming out on The Dark Knight Returns, the second graphic novel I’ve read in recent weeks, so my mind is on superheroes and superpowers.

On a side note, after so many Friday questions, I am bound to screw up and repeat one, so hopefully this hasn’t been done before. You may ask why I don’t go back and search to see if I have, and I respond with…I’m just THAT lazy.

Alright, so superheroes is the topic and the question is:

Who is your favorite superhero and why?

This is a pretty tough question I think. I don’t want an obvious answer here because that is just lame. I could say Batman or Superman, but come on, those are too obvious for me.

So I’m going to go with one I always liked as a kid for some reason. I don’t remember why exactly, but maybe it had to do with oceans or communication with sea creatures, I have no clue, but I’m going with Aquaman.

He was just so cool flying through the water at amazing speeds. I also got re-introduced to him when he made a few appearances on Smallville, which were some of the best episodes of the series I’ve ever seen.

What about you guys? Who is your favorite and why?
