  • William Yu

    If I could be any comic book character, I would be Iron Man because he can fly and not only that, but he is extremely rich.

  • Brandon Azar

    If I could be like a comic book character, it would be fun to be someone like Storm/Ororo Munroe. It’d be cool to be able to control the weather, even if it may throw off entire climates :^). She can even breathe underwater by manipulating water molecules, which could make for some fun underwater adventures.

  • Iris Zervoulakos

    If I could be any comic book character I’d definitely be Eye-Scream. Who wouldn’t want to turn into any flavor of ice cream including banana split? Not to mention my greatest foes are also the sun, hungry babies and lactose-free diets.

  • Giovanni Morabito

    If I could be ANY comic book character, I would choose the best Marvel Villain around: The Wall. He has the STRONGEST powers of being an unstoppable wall of red brick, being able to move faster than the average brick wall, and being the master of camouflage on concrete walls. Being The Wall would be great because he is UNSTOPPABLE. Seriously who would want to punch a brick wall? Batman or Spiderman ain’t got nothing on The Wall.

  • Ashley Kate Carino

    If I was a comic book character I would be Invisible Woman. She is able to make herself and others around her turn invisible. Having this ability enables me to get to any place I want to without being noticed at all.

  • Nadia Legorreta

    If I could be any comic book character, I would choose Batman. He doesn’t need powers to defeat his enemies. Batman also has access to the newest technology along with a high tech bat mobile. Being Batman would make my life full of new adventures everyday.

  • Abigail Weeks

    If I had to choose any comic book character, it’d have to be Aquaman. He’s kind of got the whole ocean to himself, and he can empathize with sea life. I don’t personally know anybody that can have a conversation with a dolphin, so that’s cool. Only downside is that it’d be a bit awkward eating sushi.

  • Danialle Frahm

    If I could be any super hero, I would be The Flash. My reasoning for this is that there are only 24 hours in a day and with super speed, I can get everything done.

  • Veo Kirby P. Talaid

    If I had the pleasure to be any comic book character, I would choose to be the classic superhero, Arm-Fall-Off-Boy. With his power of being able to remove his limbs and then using it as a weapon, I would always have the upper hand. That and I could finally grab things on the second shelf. The possibilities are endless!

  • Samuel Thien Phanle

    If I were a comic book character, I would choose to be Superman, I know, totally original. This is because who doesn’t want to be able to fly? Or be invincible? Shoot lasers out of your eyes? But instead of being a “super hero” I would be a hire mercenary. Better than being a journalist. Most people imagine him ripping off his buttoned shirt before saving the day. Do you know how much dress shirts cost? I think I’ve made my point.

  • Noelani Stewart

    If I was a comic book character, I would be Batman. He’s a multi-billionaire by day, and a man in a bat suit by night, fighting crime. Pretty awesome!

  • Eki_Wibowo

    If I could be any comic book character, it would be Batman because he is so amazing. If you take away his bat gear from the bat suit to the bat mobile he would just be, a billionaire, a guy who master a bunch of armed and unarmed combat, he’s a great detective, a genius, and is fluent in many foreign languages.

  • Eric Gonzales

    I would be one of the best comic book characters, The Flash. Not only does he have his Super Speed, but he can manipulate his speed to allow himself to phase through solid objects.
