Doesn’t it seem like the world could use a superhero right now? One who would do what they said they’d do. One who would help end wars and roust out the real criminals; not just the street-level punks, but the people that turn the world upside down daily. We have the super villains, but where are the superheroes?
I’m not the only one who dreams of such a person coming along and righting wrongs. Millions flock to a long list of top sites for superheroes, perhaps dreaming of having that courage, or power to make a change in the world. Of course, we all can, however it’s nice to think of being able to do it with a cape on. Up, up and….ah, you get the picture.
Yeah, I haven’t heard of Kade either. Yet, according to Alexa, this is the most popular superhero website. Seriously. Kade apparently can’t feel – not the edge of a sword or his mother’s caress. Awww… poor Kade. Wouldn’t that make doing anything kind of hard? Try holding a sword, or urinating. Would he feel that he has to go to the bathroom? I’m sorry, but this character makes about as much sense as the Twilight movies. Oh wait – same audience – brooding teenagers who think they are the first generation to ever go through their teens. That being said, I’ll probably give into suspension of disbelief and read a few anyway. As a bonus, it is kind of cool that this is a Canadian website.
This is one superhero I never really understood. He’s silver and surfs through space. Did you ever get the feeling that Stan Lee and the crew at Marvel maybe did some pharmaceutical experimentation. Can you imagine the meeting that spawned this guy?
The website itself appears to be influenced by mind-altering substances. Sometimes there is red text on a star-field background. Sometimes the text is yellow. Either way, the content is interesting and a testament to this persons obsession with a boogie-boarding metalloid.
Weighing in at number 3 and some 900 to 1040 pounds, the original green machine! At Incredible Hulk Online, you’ll find that there are at least 7 incarnations of the Hulk. Beats me. When I stopped buying comics, there was still just one Hulk. The site is a bit light on content, but is pretty interesting nonetheless. It’s a pretty decent fan site, especially if you’re into collecting Hulk toys.
I am so not a fan of spiders, however if I could become Spiderman by letting a radioactive one bite me, I’d be all over that like a web that catches flies. Look out! Here comes the Spider Guy!
The first real anti-hero, or at least unwilling hero, is arguably the second most popular superhero of all time. From humble beginnings at an upstart comic book company to cheesy Saturday morning cartoons with recycled cels to blockbuster action extravaganzas. Spiderfan tracks it all! Even the promo items given by fast food joints. Did you know there was a villain called Chicken Cow? Somehow it all fits together….
Was there any doubt that Kal El would top the list of superheroes? Of course not. The first, and the greatest superhero of all time has had this site dedicated to him since 1994. As the logo says, they have everything you ever wanted to know about superman. Seriously. I started to get seriously sidetracked as I wandered through the decades of information, artwork and trivia about Clark Kent, Superman and all of his enemies and acquaintances. Remember Krypto? The super dog? How about Comet the super horse? It’s all there.
Weird huh? No X-Men. Oddly enough, based on my research into web statistics on superhero sites these are your top 5. I would have thought for sure there would be Wolverine or Batman (although technically not a superhero) or Wonder Woman (I still have a puppy crush on Lynda Carter). Nope, not there. If you know of a great website dedicated to a superhero, we’d all be glad if you shared it in the comments. Especially if it features Lynda Carter.
