About This Quiz

Even if you don't read comic books, there's no chance you're not aware of all the comic book characters out in the world.  Thanks to movies like "The Avengers" and "Wonder Woman," comic books and superheroes are bigger than ever. Comics are a cultural phenomenon, and everyone knows who Batman and Spider-Man are at this point. They're fun to read about, fun to watch and on some level, it's also fun to imagine where you might fit into that universe. If you were one of the Avengers or an X-Man, what kind of hero would you be? What power would make you stand out as the ultimate hero?

The thing is, with so many heroes out there and such a diverse range of abilities that they all seem to have, it can actually get a little overwhelming. Would you be incredibly strong? Would you fly? Would you have amazing weapons? Could you talk to plants? Turn into electricity? Phase through walls? The options are almost endless. What you need to do is take it easy on yourself for a minute and stop stressing. Instead, design your superhero hideout, and we'll just use the info we learn from your design plans to tell you exactly what power you're going to have. You'll be off fighting supervillains in no time. Take the quiz and see!
