I never thought of it. Never cared.

Nope, but most of my favorite heroes look similar.

My favorite heroes are white males whereas I am a black female so it isn't a major issue for me though I still advocate for more diversity so that there are more options and fairness. however If i were to ever dress up as a comic character I would feel uncomfortable dressing up as someone that is different from me because I don't want to face ridicule or be stared at.

None of my favorite characters look like me, a few supporting cast guys look similar. I'm told I look kind of like Deadpool's buddy weasel just with less hair.

If I cared that my favorite superhero was like me then that would make me devilishly handsome, incredibly muscular, witty and charming................................................................granted I am all of those things but the thought still never crossed my mind!

Haha, nope. If I liked my characters by how much they look like me, Foggy Nelson would be my favorite character of all time.

i Don't care.

I answered no, but man I would love to look like superman or nightwing. They kinda look the same sometimes.

How many comic book readers are big buff in shape dudes with abs of steel?

usually not. but if can relate to them and picture myself in their shoes in anyway then it definitely helps to immerse myself in the characters story. tbh i'd say i have my tim drakes haircut in my avatar.

My favorite hero is Rocket Raccoon and I'm about 98% sure I am not a raccoon.

That's a weird question. No, I guess but I've never thought of it.

Nah, I don't really have a good superhero look going for me anyway.

Plus design wise I prefer characters that look interesting, and I look like the opposite of interesting.

Apparently I look somewhat like Heath Ledger to some people (even though I'm quite young) and jokers my favourite, so... It's kinda awesome.

Most of my favorite heroes are women. Generally attractive women. And they're predominately not brunette with hazel eyes. Visually I would make an awful superhero, haha.

I wish had Superman's looks, and Batman's bank account.

I'd be set for life. :)

EDIT: Kind off a weird question...

I never really thought about it, so I never really cared. But I can't pick two so I'll just go with no.

Never thought about it and not that I do no I doesn't matter. What could matter is if they have the same values or beliefs that I do something like that does matter to me.

#22 Posted by AllStarSuperman (26560 posts) - - Show Bio

Now that I think about it. I look like captain America before the super soldier syrum or kickass.

I suppose if I shave, trimmed my hair... worked out, I'd look a little like Nightwing. Really, though, the thought never occurred to me.

I wish I looked like Superman. Power Girl ... not so much.

Thou does not look like Thor, Sentry or Wonder Man.
