In every country around the world, kids love superheroes. Whether its posters on the wall, action figures or movies, every kid has their favourite superhero, and now thanks to Hollywood and the online casino industry, even adults can enjoy the latest chapter in their reminiscent superheroes' adventures.
Superheroes are enormous business for Hollywood. Thanks to many a childhood memory being spawned from a certain superhero, their reach is enormous and surpasses generations. Using the free tool on this page, you can find out once and for all which superhero is the most popular! Just as kids long to know just who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman, now we can all discover who the strongest superhero is on the Internet!
The reason for this popularity is the fact that superheroes are super. They take people to a fantasy world, and make them forget all their worries. Watching or reading about a man or woman saving the world and turning it all right at the end of the day is very soothing.
Some of the most loved and adored superheroes of recent times are:
The movie released in 2012 stars Andrew Garfield as the superhero. He fights the villain, saves the world, sacrifices for his duties and sends the crowd home cheering. These unique qualities, including a super-unique getup, makes Spiderman top the chart.
Batman is one of the most well-known and loved superheroes of all times. He is macho, handsome, and always leaves an impact. He has unique bat-kind powers that make him unique. The latest offering in the Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises, is due for release. There are already ripples among kids and adults to witness what this superhero has in store this year.
Superman comics, merchandise and movie tickets sell like hot cakes. The superhero, who was born on the planet Krypton, makes it a point to always fight for the right, and puts it all on the line. The next installment of the superman series is long due, and fans are waiting to witness their superhero show his capabilities.
In recent years, remakes of the old comic superheroes have been taking the world by storm. Maybe this means that even adults are feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of modern life, oppressed by the government or frustrated by daunting economic circumstances. Or maybe it just means that adults aren't afraid to maintain a childlike wonder at the world anymore.
Either way, it's interesting to take a look at some of the most popular superheroes, and the reason they have their powers.
Natural powers are probably the least fulfilling for the audience, because we can't really identify with gods and aliens or ever hope to be like them. They offer a passive salvation from evil.
Acquired powers are a bit easier to audiences to identify with, because they transform ordinary people. However, the events that give them their power are still pretty far from the realm of actual possibility.
In the long run, superheroes with technological powers are the most popular, because they are the easiest to identify with. Anyone, no matter how weak or small, could theoretically acquire technology and begin fighting crime.
These are some of the most widely searched superheroes online. Casinos and bars also air superhero flicks to fill the entertainment quotient.
The ability to break the bad guy's neck and stop a burning train makes superheroes what they are today. It's fiction, but it's better than reality.
Sitting in a casino and drinking beer won't make you a superhero. it might give you superficial, non-existent wings though! But then, it's nothing but the beer.
That's exactly why not every superhero breaks records. Some comic books don't even reach the stage of publishing; forget a movie being made after it. Superman has the ability to woo girls, Spiderman with his cute antics sends a chill down their spine, Wonder Woman with her intelligence impresses one and all.
These unique qualities must also be present in a superhero for him or her to carve a niche and earn acclaim.
