I (Don't) Need a Hero
Are superheroes really boyfriend material?
Superheroes always beat baddies and win the babes even that huge slab of rock, The Thing, gets the girl in Fantastic Four. With a summer full of The Incredible Hulk, Hellboy II, and Iron Man, we contemplate whether these guys really are boyfriend material. What concerns us:
1. He actually calls it his man of steel.
2. Surprise train derailments and meteor showers mean he can never stick to dinner plans.
3. Belted leotard.
4. Some girl in a rubber catsuit who can snap a mans neck with her thighs is always hanging around, making trouble.
5. Knows when youre wearing granny panties. Hel-lo, X-ray vision.
6. Hes always had the harder day at work. Oh, yeah? This afternoon I had to save Chicago.
7. Tricked-out superheromobile leaves sizable carbon footprint.
8. Mutant babies.
