Feels like you can’t move this year without seeing a generous helping of superhero spandex, bulging biceps and general invincibility. And I’m particularly looking forward to catching up with Thor, X-Men and Captain America (and not just because of the hot bods, promise!)
So with all this comic-book action going on, we wondered what the Ultimate Superhero would look like. And decided to find out. We sorted out some categories – the best headgear, outfit, power, etc – and asked our members for their favourites.
Thousands of votes flooded in, and the result is the ultimate crime-fighting hero pictured here – complete with Rorschach’s (Watchmen) mask, Professor X’s telepathy powers, Wolverine’s claws, Batman’s utility belt and a nifty pair of wheels (the Batmobile).
Our masked avenger’s other powers include Superman’s ability to fly, The Hulk’s super strength, and invisibility a la Sue Storm of Fantastic Four (an invisible hero might have made our artist’s job easier, but not so much on the impact front!)
Let me know what you think about Amalgamation Man (not his official name) – we might well pitch to Marvel or DC and see if we can get a movie made. Though his first deadly enemy would probably be the Copyright Infringement Goblin…
