THE NME Quiz: Are You Batman Or Superman?

It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at some point: am I Batman, or am I Superman? Like, obviously you’re one of those iconic superheroes, but which one? Batman: brooding, dark, self-possessed and living a life of cold-blooded luxury. Superman: virtuous, kind, eternally optimistic and a dedicated establishment figure. They’re polar opposites, and it got us wondering – who are ya?

Say you spotted a dastardly mugger liberating an OAP of her change for the Thursday night bingo. Would you chase that sucker down and beat them to a bloody pulp? Or perform a citizens’ arrest and hand ’em over the to coppers? If the former, you’re a defiantly independent vigilante badass who’s best look is a PVC bat suit. If the latter, you’re akin to Superman, a good egg determined to have an unerringly positive impact on the world. You can’t lose!


You can see these disparate qualities in action in the upcoming superhero crossover extravaganza Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (out March 25), starring Ben Affleck as the man sometimes known as Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as the man sometimes known as Clark Kent. If you can’t wait that long to solve your identity crisis, take the NME quiz.
