Ironman: my favorite superhero

Off the top of my head, there are only two mainstream superheroes that do not require some kind of scientific or natural-disaster intervention to become heroes. The Fantastic Four are only fantastic because of space radiation (they are four until one of them dies), Superman is an alien, and Spiderman got bitten by a genetically enhanced spider.

The lists goes on from mutation to insanity, but 2 distinct men remain. Ironman and Batman. These two humble guys are just like you and me, except for Batman’s fighting skills and money, and Ironman’s brain skills… and money. I think Batman actually should be removed from this list, because he does appear to have superpowers: just kind of strong, fast, and batty. Ironman might just as well have superpowers if you call smart a superpower.

All that babble aside, the point I want to make is that if I was to hang out with one of these superheroes when they’re not “on the job”, it would have to be Ironman. I really wouldn’t mind of Storm would come hang out, and bring invisible girl from the Fantastic Four and mud-wrestle, but the dude cheering them on with me, occasionally spilling beer on himself would have to be Tony Stark. I bet he’d be totally up for the idea of a mud-wrestling pit on his private jet.
