Always A Toys ‘R Us Kid by Bryan

Poll: Who was your favorite superhero?

Flashback to the days of elementary school:

Did anyone else read comic books?

Batman was by far my favorite superhero.

Poll of the day:
1. Who was yours?
2. What is the ultimate super power?

My responses:
1. Batman
2. Invisibility

This entry is partially inspired by the fact I just discovered Iron Man also went to MIT.

    Batman kicks ass.

    The interesting thing about your second question is that the NPR program “This American Life” did a show about which superpower, invisibility or flight, is better. What they found is that flight is the more noble super power and that women prefer invisibility over flight and men vice versa. The link to the show is: thislife.org then click complete archive then choose the Feb. 23, 2001 show.

  4. I’m actually getting a tour of DC Comics on Wednesday. It’s going to be awesome.

    My favorite superhero? Superman and The Flash.

    Ultimate super power? Flight.

    I’ve thought very long about this one…

    Favorite superhero = Captain Planet

    Ultimate super power = telekinesis

    Being super rich and getting your equipment off of e-bay like batman (I am convinced he bought all of it off of e-bay).
