About This Quiz
Even if you don't read comic books, there's no chance you're not aware of all the comic book characters out in the world. Thanks to movies like "The Avengers" and "Wonder Woman," comic books and superheroes are bigger than ever. Comics are a cultural phenomenon, and everyone knows who Batman and Spider-Man are at this point. They're fun to read about, fun to watch and on some level, it's also fun to imagine where you might fit into that universe. If you were one of the Avengers or an X-Man, what kind of hero would you be? What power would make you stand out as the ultimate hero?
The thing is, with so many heroes out there and such a diverse range of abilities that they all seem to have, it can actually get a little overwhelming. Would you be incredibly strong? Would you fly? Would you have amazing weapons? Could you talk to plants? Turn into electricity? Phase through walls? The options are almost endless. What you need to do is take it easy on yourself for a minute and stop stressing. Instead, design your superhero hideout, and we'll just use the info we learn from your design plans to tell you exactly what power you're going to have. You'll be off fighting supervillains in no time. Take the quiz and see!
Is your hideout going to be hiding in plain sight or tucked away where no one could ever find it?
It should be impossible for anyone to find.
People will think it's something else than what it truly is.
I'd like it to be on the down low.
Are you building your hideout on your own or not?
It'll be something that already existed.
It'll be a place I bought.
I'm designing this place from the ground up.
How many people are going to know the location of your hideout?
Only the people who need to know
What kind of defenses is your hideout going to have to keep out those dastardly villains?
Not a lot. The idea is that villains will never find it.
A whole team of superheroes
Some really impressive tech
They say location is everything, so where do you want to build your hideout?
An incredibly remote location
It'll be in the city but hidden away.
Obviously secret real estate is not super easy to come by, so how big is this hideout going to be?
It'll be a good sized compound.
What are you keeping in your hideout besides yourself anyway?
Some mementos of who I am and where I've been.
It's where I live, so all my stuff.
All kinds of cool stuff, plus my team
All my cool weapons and tech
Do you think your hideout is going to be a grim and broody kind of place?
It's not a 5-star hotel, but it's no dump, either.
No, it'll be a little more upbeat than that.
Do you have a backup plan for if your hideout ever gets destroyed?
I have other places to go.
My contingency plans have contingency plans.
Say you're in your hideout and some enemies raid the place. What's the plan in that case?
I'll take out the trash and get back to whatever I was doing.
Is your hideout going to be a place you're in all the time or just when you need to do something very specific?
It's just for when I need to get away.
This is just when I'm doing work.
You'd be surprised how many heroes forget the basic amenities. Is your hideout going to be equipped with a kitchen?
It's a fully functional kind of place.
You know what? I don't know.
How important is it that your hideout live up to the aesthetic of your costume and persona?
There could be some elements, but it's not important.
It's more about attitude than appearance.
It won't have much to do with my overall look.
It'll look pretty cool, don't worry.
On the off-chance your place gets destroyed, what will you do then?
We'll cross that road when we get to it.
Do you feel like you'd do well with a really old hideout or something more modern?
It's not that important to me.
It'll be well-established.
Something modern sounds good.
I like a mix of old and new.
Do you figure you'll have people working in the same building as your hideout?
I'm sure there will be someone there.
You know what makes a really cool hideout? Portability! Is your hideout mobile?
Nah, it's just a building.
I'll have vehicles, but the building is pretty stationary.
Can your hideout help you get to any cool and unexpected locations?
If one hideout is good, then two must be awesome. Are you going to have more than one place you can hang your cape?
One main hideout and then I guess my actual home is a place, too.
I feel like one place is good.
I guess I could have a backup.
Some superhero hideouts really lend themselves to darkness. Is your hideout a grim and dark place?
It doesn't need a ton of light.
Regular lighting is fine.
I'd like some brightness to see what I'm doing.
It could go either way, really.
Sure, looks aren't everything, but they're something. Do you have a preference for the type of architecture?
Whatever's functional, I suppose
Anything modern is great.
I like the idea of something huge and imposing, maybe even a little Gothic.
How do you plan to get into your hideout from the outside, anyway?
It'll have a hidden entrance somewhere.
I guess you'll need the front door key.
Same as any other building. Maybe a helipad.
Secret doorways and tunnels!
What's going to be the coolest gadget you have in your hideout?
It's not about gadgets, really.
My extremely cool and practical super suit.
Are there going to be any natural elements incorporated into the design of this hideout?
We can have a nice garden, I suppose.
I can make use of the landscape, sure.
The term "hideout" obviously implies hiding, so is that the main function of this place?
No, it's more just my home.
It's a base of operations.
Is this hideout going to be a refuge for other people in need?
I'd rather keep everyone out.
If you need to crash with me, you're welcome to.
It could be, for a select few.
Is this the kind of hideout that takes care of itself or are you racking up some bills to pay for this place?
It's not a costly place at all.
General upkeep and whatnot are going to cost some money.
A place this cool doesn't come cheap.
Do you plan on using your hideout to house and protect and super dangerous things?
That's probably going to happen.
Do you have the skill to build this entire hideout yourself or are you having help?
I'm just moving into a building that already exists.
I plan to adapt an existing location.
All the best parts will be my own design.
So what happens when you want to move out of this hideout?
I assume I will at some point and just find a new place.
If I'm moving it's because this base was destroyed.
