Trying to choose a favorite superhero these days can be pretty difficult because there are just so many awesome characters out there. It seems that new superhero movies are coming out all the time, all vying for our attention.
In the DC universe, we have heroes like Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Shazam battling against villains like Joker, Lex Luthor, Two-Face, Riddler, and Bane.
The Marvel universe is home to heroes like Iron Man, Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Black Panther, and bad guys like Ultron and Thanos.
Of course, there are also superhero characters which don't belong to DC or Marvel. Will Smith, for example, played the role of a wayward superhero in the 2008 film Hancock. Similar heroes include Hellboy, Spawn, Megamind, The Incredibles, and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
For today's quiz, we want our readers to play a simple game of This or That. All they need to do is choose their favorites (and they may be a few tough choices to make!) and we'll match them with a superhero. Can we guess who your favorite is? It's time to play This or That and find out.
Iron Man or Captain America?
When Tony Stark is taken he uses the tools he has to build himself a suit of armor which he uses to escape. Once free he continues to works on the suit, adding more technology to it, and in doing so, takes on the superhero persona of Iron Man. Steve Rodgers became Captain America after being given an experimental serum during the Second World War. He was frozen in ice and revived in the present day to lead the Avengers. Who is the best superhero?
The Fast and the Furious or The Expendables?
The 2010 action flick The Expendables was the first in a three movie film series and starred Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, and Mickey Rourke. In 2001 the first Fast and Furious movie was released and since then there have been seven sequels (as per Wikipedia). This film starred Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Michelle Rodriguez. Which franchise was the most entertaining? The Fast and the Furious or The Expendables?
Baseball or basketball?
Everyone has a different idea of what constitutes a perfect weekend. For some of us, the idea of lazing around at home (preferably in front of the TV with a ready supply of snacks) is just fine, but others might want to get outside and do something a little more active. That could be anything from visiting the beach to racing bikes. Many folks like to use their free time to play team sports like baseball or basketball. Which is better?
Burgers or pizza?
Tonight we're going to watch a movie but before we do that we need to get something to eat. We don't want to get hungry during the movie and we need something a little more than just popcorn (although we'll be having that too!). The only problem is that half of our friends want to get pizza and the other half are in the mood for burgers. It's time to make a choice. Is it going to be burgers or pizza for dinner?
Mashed potato or mac and cheese?
Everyone has a favorite comfort food. It's that dish that we know we can always turn to when life gets tough. It might be a certain type of pudding, a savory dish or any type of food. A few common examples of comfort food include dishes like mashed potato (usually with gravy), fried chicken, lasagna, and mac and cheese. If you had to choose between a bowl of mash or a plate of mac and cheese, which would you go for?
Superman or Batman?
Over the years the role of Batman has been played by actors such as Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Christian Bale, and most recently Ben Affleck. The role of Superman has also been played by various actors including Henry Cavill who portrays this superhero in the DC Extended Universe films Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League (as per Wikipedia). We know they are both amazing characters but which one of these heroes is the best?
Wonder Woman or Black Widow?

Both animated families have been on the air for a number of years but who is your favorite? Homer or Peter?
Golf or hockey?
Sport is a fantastic way for us to keep fit and socialize at the same time. No matter what level of fitness we currently have there is a sport to suit us. Those of us who enjoy team sports might enjoy games like hockey, basketball, or football, while those who like things a little more subdued might prefer to play a round of golf. If you had the afternoon off to enjoy some sunshine what would you rather do - play golf or hockey?
Fries or onion rings?
A burger just isn't the same without the sides, is it? Everyone knows that when you order a burger, you have to at least get an order of fries to go along with it. Some folks prefer to have onion rings alongside their burgers and others would rather have both. Fries and onion rings are both yummy sides that can be added to a number of dishes and they are commonly found on fast food menus. Choose fries or onion rings.
Comedy or action movies?
Tonight is movie night and so far, we've almost got everything ready. We've collected pillows and blankets from all over the house and put them in front of the TV, we've prepared all the snacks, and we've got plenty of sodas to keep us going. But the only thing we haven't decided on yet is what movie we are going to watch. We can't quite decide if we are in the mood for an action film or a comedy flick... Which is better?
Will Smith or Keanu Reeves?
Will Smith's filmography includes Independence Day, Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness, I am Legend, I, Robot, Men in Black, Hancock, Bad Boys, and Focus.

Tom Holland currently portrays this superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which of these two superheroes is the best - Deadpool or Spider-Man?
Chocolate or vanilla?
It's Saturday afternoon and we've just finished the monthly grocery shopping. We decided that before heading home, we're going to stop and have something to eat, so we find a table in the local burger joint. We're not quite sure what we want to have to eat but we know we're in the mood for a cold creamy milkshake. The only question is what flavor to choose. The vanilla is always good but the chocolate is pretty tempting too...What will it be?
Movies or books?
When we read a book it's up to us to picture the scenes and characters in our own minds. If a writer is skilled enough they will be able to paint these images in our minds using words. A movie is a more visual experience because we get to see and hear the story being played out. Both movies and books are a great way for us to relax and unwind. What would you rather do - watch a movie or read a book?
Bane or Joker?
In the DC universe, Batman has many foes that he needs to fight off in order to keep Gotham safe. They include villains like Scarecrow, Ra's al Ghul, Joker, and Bane.

Day or night?
Some folks are early birds. They like to get up very early in the morning and start getting things done so that they can retire to bed early too. Other people are night owls; they prefer to stay up late at night and sleep later in the mornings. The daytime is great for getting things done but many people find that they work better in the evenings. It all depends on the person. Which do you prefer - the day time or evening?
Marvel or DC?
The Marvel Universe is home to superheroes like Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Hulk, and villains such as Ultron and Thanos.

Zombies or werewolves?
It's a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon, one of those afternoons perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a blanket, a few snacks, and a movie. We've decided that's exactly what we are going to do, so now we just need to choose something to watch.

Juicy BBQ ribs or a basket full of deep-fried chicken pieces? Pick one.
Dogs or cats?
Everyone knows that having pets is lots of fun and that there are many different types of pets to choose from. Two of the most popular types of pets are dogs and cats. Dogs are great for companionship, security, and they are always happy to see us (even if we've only been gone for five minutes). Cats, on the other hand, are a little more aloof. They usually only want attention on their terms but they do make great snuggle buddies.
Beard or no beard?
Any guy who has ever grown a beard before will know that it takes work to keep it in tip-top condition. Many people find well-manicured facial hair attractive so it certainly pays to put in the extra work. Men who chose to go cleanly shaven on the other hand, still need to put in the work to keep their skin clear and blemish free, which can be difficult when you shave every day. Which look do you think is better? Beard or no beard?
Regular or skinny jeans?

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to phones too. Which is better - Apple or Android?
Futurama or Rick and Morty?
In Futurama, a pizza delivery boy called Fry falls into a cryogenic freezing tube on New Year's Eve 1999 and wakes up in the year 3000.

In Rick and Morty, an eccentric grandfather and scientist Rick, takes his grandson, Morty, on wide adventures across time and dimensions. Both these science fiction cartoons are entertaining but which is the best one in your opinion?
Hulk or Groot?

Video games or board games?
Okay, it's time for a little old-school versus new-school! We all know that today's video games are incredible and if we could, many of us would spend a lot more time playing them. But there is still something to be said about boardgames. They still have their place when it comes to socializing and they don't require electricity or an internet connection. What would you rather do on a games night - play video games or break out the old-school boardgames?
Christian Bale or Ben Affleck?
Christian Bale has starred in films like The Machinist, The Prestige, and Terminator Salvation and is known for going to great lengths to prepare for his roles.

Everyone could do with a few more holidays, right? Spending the whole year working and only being able to relax on vacation for two or three weeks just isn't enough!
