Being a superhero in real life (16 votes)

You're crazy, Last Son 38%
You're crazy, but you at least make some sense, Last Son 63%

It's the elephant in the room right na na na. We all know being a vigilante isn't a bright move, but could cosplaying while you're volunteering, say, at the soup kitchen, count as something good? You could even form a group. Leave crime fighting to the professionals, but do something to help in another way?

Yes? No? Too much time being a fanboy and reading comics and watching movies?

Would that really count as being a superhero? A real life superhero to me is somebody like Phoenix Jones. Not that doing what you're suggesting isn't a good deed or anything.

Nobody can be a Superhero because we can't have superpowers. And before you say power suits, when an average Joe can buy a power suit, it's no more special than a gun.

You assume no one on here has superpowers.

That may not be the case.

I think it's possible to be a superhero but you have to be this to make up for not having superpowers:

1. Really smart. To be able to stop people with guns and knifes without getting killed. And also plan attacks and stuff.

2. Incredible athlete. Strength, speed, agility, toughness, all are needed to becoming a hero and to take out people that may be bigger than you.

3. Rich. To afford all the gadgets, suits, and weapons.

4. A good attitude. Being able to give up other things so you can fight crime.

That is how you be a superhero. I didn't really understand your post much, being a hero but leaving crime fighting for professionals?

Quiet! Before you reveal too much.

Eh, I'd rather be a supervillain.

That is actually possible.

But supervillains in real life suck.
