About This Quiz

If "Avengers: Endgame" taught us nothing else, it's that being a superhero may be a tough job for a while, but it pays off in the end. Well, mostly. But it also showed that your life would be incredibly exciting if you had superpowers. You'd also get to meet new and interesting people who might not even be people, and you could visit their home planets or dimensions or times! It's all very interesting stuff. All you'd need to worry about is the endless chain of villains who want to destroy you and all of the goodness in the universe at every turn. But as a hero, that doesn't matter. Heroes have to face that stuff as part of the job and be all "Not today, Thanos!"  Or, you know, Joker or Magneto or whomever. 

Before you start superheroing, though, you need to have some stuff down. You need a power, but we'll let you work that out. You probably need a costume, too. But again, that's something you can order on Amazon. What we can help you with is a name because all good heroes need good names. You can't save the world as Hazel. Like, you could, and Hazel's a fine name, but it's not a "super" name. So if you want to know yours, take the quiz and see!
