Throwback Thursday: Which superhero would you be? #TBT

It's Thursday!


Hey good people. I hope that your week has been going well. Okay, todays question is a TBT in a sense that your answer will probably be based on your memories, some moment in your youth/childhood, or affected by your past in some other way :) For example, when I was growing up the Marvel universe was a bit smaller. There was no Ant-man. I grew up with Superman, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Wonder Woman and such.


I would choose Iron Man - always liked him. Plus Robert Downey Jr. is pretty cool...


If you could be one superhero, which superhero would you be?

Let’s make it a great Thursday!

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be GALACTUS.
The idea of having the power to destroy entire worlds.....?? swoooooosh!!

And he wears purple Speedos. Classy geezer!


In the comics/animated-series/movies, the heroes always need some deus-ex-machina-type-bull$h!t way to defeat him.


Only one person can defeat him, and only in Top Trumps: Dr. Doom.
He has 100 weapons to Galactus' 99.
But in a fisty-cuffs Galactus would just eat him. Game over!

The Hulk

I'm not proud of this one, but my superpower is my anger. Back in the mid-2000's a few of the recent college grads I worked with decided to put together a steel cage match bracket for some of the senior staff, unbeknownst to us. They had two brackets, one with Angry Andy and one with Calm Andy. In the Calm Andy bracket I am eliminated in the 2nd round. In the Angry Andy Bracket I win the entire tournament - all 4 rounds. I've really worked hard on self-improvement through reading, learning and meditation to always be calm. But as with any character trait you cannot fully eradicate it, just control it.

So, the anger remains below the surface...

It's a tough one. There are so many! And I agree with @Fun Man Andy on this super annoying thing that happens a lot which is the good guys pulling sh*t out of their a** to win and not just in comics. And when your favourite actors tend to play the baddies you get pissed off A LOT! 😂

Quite frankly I can't choose just one. :þ So I'm gonna say one of the following:

-John Constantine



-Dr. Strange

So any combination of regeneration, magic and snark. 😂

So much fun to read - thanks guys for sharing :)

Yes @Fun Man Andy  no superhero is complete without Speedos 🩲🤿!

Hulk is always a classic, @Andy Gladstone  I've always been a little weak for Hulk. Something about the green color or I don't know - he just excellent gravity :)

@Rilwan Ahmed I will have to goole Shaktiman - cool!

As my avatar suggests, mine is Iron Man.  I could also throw in Batman as well.

Their superpower?

Thanks for this interesting post, @Kristján Geir Mathiesen !

First of all, I would like to admit that I am a big fan of superhero movies and series and have grown up watching them a lot. (Recently watching all past seasons of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" on Netflix to be up-to-date on all superheroes involved in that universe)

Choosing one is very difficult and unfair, so If I could be a superhero, I would choose one of these two:

1. Flash (because of his ability to do all tasks at a lightning speed and ability to time travel to fix any mistakes committed in the past in order to fix the future)

2. Batman (because of his ability to afford anything, being a millionaire and the coolest gadgets or machines that are available to him for his missions).


Have a  great Thursday, everyone!

@Taranjeet Singh - YES! Flash is a great choice, why didn't I think of that?...


@Dwante.Jackson comic books are a good source. Well chosen!

Fun question @Kristján Geir Mathiesen

I believe I would be one mixed with Batgirl - she has an excellent sense of humor, LOL - and Katana - because of her sword, and she used to be so joyful. I like it, hahaha!
I still have the VHS of Batman & Robin, 1997. 😅 😅 😋 😋

I got asked this question during a job interview years ago.

My answer is still the same: Superman/Quicksilver.

Because I want to save time on traveling to help anyone or visit anywhere, time is the most valuable and limited thing to a human-being.

I would love to have Super Powers of Deku from My hero Academia Anime
