quiz: which superhero are you?

Ah, I saw this coming a mile away. A better quality quiz than you usually get at QuizFarm; the Dark Knight is the highest and bestest iteration of the species known as Hero.

You scored as Batman, the Dark Knight. As the Dark Knight of Gotham, Batman is a vigilante who deals out his own brand of justice to the criminals and corrupt of the city. He follows his own code and is often misunderstood. He has few friends or allies, but finds comfort in his cause.

  1. You scored as Maximus.

    After his family was murdered by the evil emperor Commodus, the great Roman general Maximus went into hiding to avoid Commodus’s assassins. He became a gladiator, hoping to dominate the colosseum in order to one day get the chance of killing Commodus. Maximus is valiant, courageous, and dedicated. He wants nothing more than the chance to avenge his family, but his temper often gets the better of him.

    I suppose this means I’ll be beating someone with a telephone during my next hotel stay, but that raises questions whether I’m Jon Voight in Midnight Cowboy too . . . . .

  2. “Editor. Former Frontier Editor.” Hmmm, will need to work on your tagline.

    I actually didn’t know who William Wallace was and had to look it up. No Hebrideans in my ancestry!

    I don’t like Batman really. I wanted to be someone like Captain Jack Sparrow, James Bond or Indiana Jones and I did say I hate caves?!

    Meh, better go back into my cave saving Gotham City of itself….

  4. You don’t like Batman??? The ultimate humanist protagonist? Oh, for shame. We sentence you to reading the entire original Dark Knight series, including the part where he breaks up with Robin/Nightwing.

    Besides, think of the mansion and the car!

  5. The mansion and the car are definitely a bonus. And Alfred is amazing! Do you have a link to the original Dark Knight series?

    But James Bond is, well, James Bond. He is in more places than just Gotham City and he has an even better car and gadgets. I am referring to earlier Bonds by the way, Casino Royale didn’t really do it for me.

    And Indiana Jones, well, there is the music and the almost too frequent near-death experiences. And of course his excellent dad. How can you not like that?

  6. Hmmm, you’re not so all about the Neo either, eh? No existentialist, you! Yes, we’d all love an Alfred of our very own.

    While I do have some hard copies of a couple of the original Dark Knight series, unfortunately I was going through delayed puberty and spent my comic dollars on New Teen Titans, alas. And this is why I am impecunious to this very day. But this isn’t a bad place to start reading about The Dark Knight, truly one of the highest iterations of the comic book form.

  7. Catwoman rocked, but what about The Huntress, the daughter of Catwoman and Batman? A more morally ambiguous heroine was never invented, but my god she was cool.

    Incidentally, that site is wrong about her. There were TWO Huntresses, which is a result of DC hiring some people who hadn’t read their Bat-history. The character they came up with was too cool to delete, so they just went with the duality. Later, they retroactively killed off the world the Huntress existed in anyway, during Crisis on Infinite Earths. God, I never thought I’d need to remember this stuff, but I do.

    Also, I feel real old now.

    Hmmm… a Batman/Bond hero sounds interesting.

    I tied at Jack Sparrow and Spider-Man, which is all wrong–rum and swinging between buildings on thread don’t mix. The tie breaker went in favour of Spider-Man.

    But the list has problems: WIlliam Wallace was a brigand and villain, like that Rob Roy fellah, and he’s anti-semitic too. What kind of hero is that?

    As for “The Terminator” being a hero … I think there’s a big difference between a hero and a really cool villain. A distinction George Lucas should have talked to me about.

    Oh–and there’s at least one hero missing from that list. But I suppose it’s taken for granted that nobody is the Doctor but the Doctor.

  10. I have never heard of the Huntress, but then again I never used to read comics.

    Well, there used to be more timelords, but there is only one doctor.

  11. You scored as James Bond, Agent 007. James Bond is MI6’s best agent, a suave, sophisticated super spy with charm, cunning, and a license’s to kill. He doesn’t care about rules or regulations and somewhat amoral. He does care about saving humanity though, as well as the beautiful women who fill his world. Bond has expensive tastes, a wide knowledge of many subjects, and his usually armed with a clever gadget and an appropriate one-liner.

  12. It’a all about Captain Jack Sparrow!

    They are all the same doctor:

    To date, ten actors have played the role in the television series, with these changes being explained by his ability to regenerate.

  13. Yes, but yet they are all different. I liked the looks of the Peter Davison one, but I liked the attitude of the Tom Baker one much better. And some of the snarkier Doctors have been good as well, though none as decorative. The current one isn’t bad.

  14. I have never seen [or even heard of] Doctor Who until they restarted it with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper two or three years ago.

    I very much like David Tenant, I remember watching a BBC production ‘Casanova’ with him about six to twelve months prior to him starting on Doctor Who and he was absolutely brilliant.

  15. Billie Piper, she’s the blonde mouthbreather, isn’t she? I’ve never yet seen a shot of her with her mouth closed; she must have terrible hay fever or something.

  16. Haha, that’s one way of putting it.

    She is a very good actress though, I remember seeing her in ‘Bella and the Boys’ in which she was excellent.

  17. My television viewage has fallen through the floor since my cable-loving roommate moved out a few years ago. Basically I only use the tv for exercise videos and old Thin Man movies, with the occasional Viggo flick thrown in. There are some good shows out there, though.

  18. I don’t have a TV reception any more. We gave up on that a while ago. I suppose it’s good that I live with housemates who buy a lot on DVD.

  19. Yes, or a Bittorrent addict is handy as well. The only videos I really want that I don’t have at the moment are The Return of the King, After the Thin Man, Henry V (I have a huge crush on Kenneth Branagh), and the latest in the Harry Potter series. Oh, and after watching 300 tonight, 300, only it’s not out yet.

    In fact, it’s quite closety. Badum-bump.

  20. Yeah, there is something about Mr Branagh.

    The Return of the King as in LotR? One of the few DVD’s I actually bought.

    And I have and Harry Potter addiction, so I own those as well. Or was that my housemates? It’s going to be a mess if one of us ever moves out!

    I have not yet seen 300, most of the feedback I’ve heard wasn’t too great.

    And Bittorrent is very useful for all these shows that take forever to come across the pond to us. I’m very much into Lost, Heroes and so on….

  21. Yes, the Return of the King as in LotR: I’ve seen it three and a half times, but it’s the only one I don’t own. I even met Viggo, but I still don’t own ROTK.

    As for 300, I just got back from watching it. Bloody, jingoistic, transparently propgagandizing, but real, real purty. If you like muscular, half-naked men, you’ll love it. The theatre was filled with women. If it weren’t 3 in the bloody morning I’d stay up and do a blow-by-blow comparison of it with the real Battle of Thermopylae. One thing: the real battle didn’t have so many shaven-chested hotties.

  22. I got William Wallace. So, I think that I’m legally bound and obligated to do the following… FREEDOM!!!!!!!

    I never understood that one.

    You can take our lives but you can’t take away our freeeedoommm!!!

    Huh? How does that work? Exactly?

  23. Damn straight. You think they grow on trees? Only in SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

    The “How I met Viggo” tale shall be posted shortly, if I can find it. It’s a 10,000 word monster, though. Basically, all you need to know is that he really is shy and that he’s ten times sexier in person.

  24. Yeah, yeah. I know adolescent blunderers like yourself don’t want to hear it, but it really is how you use it.

    And anyone who wants to know the size merely has to rent The Indian Runner for the 7 second full frontal nudity.
