Superhero Stamp: Find Your Inner Hero!
xx I made a promise… xx
Occupation (And do you like it? What would you like to do?): Nothing for now. It’s okay, but I really want to own a book store in the future.
Astrological sign (And do you think it applies?): Leo. It does, but not that much.
xx You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry… xx
Likes: Reading, writing, cooking, singing, watching old movies and operas, puppies, anime and manga, comics, martial arts, rainy days, hanging out with friends, eating new foods, planting herbs, sleeping and music
Dislikes: Liars, hypocrites, people who are homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (something that’s near and dear to my heart), mean people, the closed minded, laziness, being impatient, hospitals (for some weird reason, I can never get sick. At ALL.)
Hobbies: Fencing, Kendo, gourmet cooking, baking, singing, reading, soccer, fixing things, helping out with little kids, Kenjutsu and naginatatsu.
Talents: I can sing in three different ranges, from Soprano to tenor, if need be. I can make most foods from scratch, I can fix anything that’s around my house, and my great memory.
Strengths: I’m sweet-mannered, honest without being blunt, I’m loyal to my friends and I’m the kind of person who can make friends with strangers. (This has happened five times by now…) Someone has also told me that I can make someone comfortable when they’re around me. Funny, silly, both book smart and street smart and EXTREMELY patient.
Weaknesses: Being too trusting at times with the wrong people, worrying about living up to my own standards, afraid of really expressing my emotions with people and wondering why people can’t have the same potential I have to do anything. A wee bit geeky as well.
What makes you the most…
Happy?: Walking around with my friends, reading comics while listening to Big Band music, singing Ella Fitzgerald songs while making dinner, trying out something new and the challenges that come with it.
Sad?: Seeing someone hurt, someone crying, someone giving up on life (I was like that once upon a time), wondering if I’m making a difference in this world.
Angry?: Domestic abuse, drugs, not helping the helpless, not doing anything at all when you could, people who just picks fights out of nowhere for no reason, ignorant people, annoying people who just doesn’t know when to stop.
Silly/stupid?: Being around my friends and family, cracking jokes and fooling around when we have a lot of stuff to do.
Uncomfortable?: When I have nothing to say at all or to talk about, talking about politics or religion, since I’m not in the mood to have an argument over them.
xx With great power… xx
What’s your favorite/ideal superpower? Why?: It’s a three way tie with Invulnerability, super strength and flight. The invulnerability and super strength works both for me since I can protect more people when I can’t get hurt that easily in the first place. And I just always found flight fascinating, since it must be so fun to be one with the sky and the wind.
Who’s your favorite hero? Why?: Storm. I love her because she is someone who is strong, powerful and unique in her own way. She is also the very, very, few women heroes and the extremely few African/African American superheroes that I look up to. She’s a leader, a magical being, a powerful force of good (literally) and someone who has the same flaws, hang-ups and isn’t afraid of change. Also, it doesn’t hurt that I love a person who has different colored hair that sets them apart from the rest.
It’s okay, lots of us have fictional crushes. Do you have one? Who is it, and why are you so sweet on them?: Oh GODS, I have a lot of them, but if I have to pick one, I would pick the Lex Luthor from Smallville. He’s young, brass, and stubborn at times. but he has the ability to help people. He might make mistakes with that, but he wants someone to guide him in the right direction. That and the way he oozes charm and such power and charisma is sexy to me.
Is there anyone you really admire? Who and why?: My Grandmother. She is a rebel and a rule breaker. She has been a nurse, a firefighter, an activist and a marine in her life and she never intends on stopping. She never compromised on her individuality and her skill and experiences. Even though she was a woman, she treated everyone equally as many people did she. And she always was proud of me for doing non-traditional things like my Martial arts and my singing, while praising me for my uniqueness where others would be scared or put me down. She is everything I want to be when I turn 68 years old.
Would you use your powers strictly for business… or would you find more- let’s just say creative- uses for them?: Business, in a way. I would love to use my powers to help as a firefighter or a police officer.
What would your costume look like?: Something like this:
But with a mask with one-way opaque eyelets to cover my eyes and different colored hair so I won't be recognized.
Panther sold separately.
What would your arch nemesis be like?: Someone who is the complete opposite of everything I am, someone who is more of an agent of chaos and evil, kind of like the Joker.
Would be a part of a team? Do you have a certain one in mind?: A team like X-men or Justice league, so I can help anyone in need.
xx Then you know, justice has two sides… xx
Superman or Batman?: Batman, naturally. He is the greatest example of what human beings can do when being pushed to their limit. He’s the best of the best without having superpowers.
Captain America or Iron Man?: Captain America. Tony can suck it, the traitor.
Brawn or beauty?: Both.
Leader or follower?: Leader, since I’m kind of use to being the leader anyway in real life. But I’m all for compromise if someone else wants to lead.
Shy or outgoing?: Outgoing. I love meeting new people and making new friends.
Black or white?: Gray. That way I can see things in different perspectives.
Meat or vegetables?: Meat all the way. It’s the cook in me, even though I now have a great appreciation for veggies than I did in the past.
Secrets or lies?: Secrets.
Courage or wisdom?: Both. I can’t really see having one without the other.
Forgiveness or revenge?: Both.
Cruel or kind?: Kind. Being cruel is foreign to me.
Optimistic or pessimistic?: I’m more of an optimistic pessimist.
Serious or silly?: Both, since I need to balance my stoic side with some silly most of the time.
xx With you, it’s just a gamble… xx
If someone begged you to kill them, would you do it?: Not without a lot of thought and a damned good reason. If not, what’s the point?
You meet an alternate universe version of yourself. How do you react?: Be surprised. And ask a lot of questions about the other universe and get to know myself all over again.
Apocalypse time. What do you do first?: Get in contact with my family, do every single thing I’ve always wanted to do and as it comes, I want to face it dead on. While riding a motorcycle.
Lex Luthor is having lunch just a couple yards away from you. What do you do (if anything)?: Nothing at all. I could listen and easedrop if he’s talking on his cell phone, but I wouldn’t do anything rash in a public setting.
Your best friend has been badly disfigured and rendered mentally unstable (á la Harvey Dent). He/she is about to kill someone! What do you do??: Calmly talk him down while having someone distracts them so I can save the person first and then stun him/her unconscious.
If you could only save one of these people, who would you save? Please explain your answer:
[ ] The ten-year-old pancreatic cancer patient (note: this type of cancer only has a 95% survival rate five years after diagnosis)
[ ] The kind old man
[X] The alcoholic pregnant woman
[ ] The single father who gambled away his son’s college/trust/savings fund
[ ] The eighteen-year-old prisoner (note: he would be released)
The alcoholic pregnant woman since we can help the woman with the drinking problem, and if it's not too late, make sure that the child goes on to live a healthy, long-lasting life.
Which sin are you most guilty of?:
[ ] Pride
[ ] Envy
[ ] Gluttony
[ ] Wrath
[ ] Sloth
[ ] Greed
Anything else?: "Fronti Nulla fides: No reliance can be placed on appearance." ^_^
