    I don't think Spiderman is an INTp. I've seen COUNTLESS hours of the cartoons, which are based on the comics. He's quite angtsy. He's a little bitch. He drives me crazy. He's constantly worried about his love life and he has this "I can't do anything" attitude. The women in his life never know how he feels and he drives them crazy with never telling them what's going on. He only protects people and does his superhero stuff because he feels obligated to. Actually... now that I think about it... just might be his POLR. I don't know though... oh nm!

    Do you think Doc Oc is an ENTp? I sorta think so.

    W/e, I'd just say that Doc Oc is an ENTj, Spiderman is an INTj, Batman is an ISTp, and SuperMan is a girlyman. And I'm not going to argue types in this thread because they are fictional characters and it's stupid... that's just my opinions... bye.

    I watched "The incredibles" a few nights ago.

    The main character, crap I already forgot his name, is an ESTp.

    This is just for fun Rocky. Chillax.

    The problem with typing the characters is that so many writers contribute to the storytelling, so the personalities noticably fluctuate. I'm just typing based on feeling only. If you disagree with me, it's perfectly fine.

    Rocky, if that was "chillaxed," then you might want to get checked for kidney stones.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Superheroes are particularly difficult to type, even if just for fun, not only because of the huge number of writers but also their different incarnations in comics, tv, movies, etc.

    As an old comics buff, here are my comments on discojoe's list.

    - Batman - INTj

    - Superman - the original one of the very early comics of the 1930's and 1940's was a a clear ESTp; later he changed to ISTj and remained so up to the 1980's. The character in the Superman movies is just a moron;

    - Spiderman - in the original comics he was either INTj or INFj

    - Captain America - agreed, ESTj

    - Thor - you could say ESTp due to his big ego, but overall I'd say ISTj. The real ESTp character of Marvel Comics is the Sub-Mariner

    - Iron Man - I think he's the least ISTj of them all, up to the 1980's he shifted between ENTp and ENTj

    - Wolverine - ISTp

    - Aquaman - no idea

    - Wonder Woman - no idea

    - The Punisher - agreed, ISTp

    - Doctor Strange - ENTj

    Supervillains: no idea for now

    My typing refers to comics up to 1992, when I stopped reading them.

    batman, as he is depicted in "batman begins", is one of the clearest examples of an INFJ there is. beneath his stern exterior lies a loving, passionate person who seeks to preserve justice, protect the weak and the innocent, and restore the city in which he grew up to the beacon of hope and goodness it was while his parents were alive. he is deeply committed to ethics, social justice, eliminating corruption, and helping those who are alienated and rejected ("your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share," says the film's villain). he also struggles to separate these core ethical values from his personal anger and desire for vengeance resulting from his parents' murder. most importantly, he sees his mission as part of the greater struggle between good and evil, between right and wrong, and between hope and despair.

    comics version and movie version of characters can vary by quite a bit. then again, comics version and subsequent comics version can also vary. i missed out on batman begins (ok, yes, that was lame) but if he's INFj in the movie, then i'm a bit disappointed. i always thought of him as the flagship INTj hero. i like the way he lays out plans, and the fact that he's bloody intelligent, and independent. he also runs a successful business empire on the side. the guy's a born strategist.

    Do you know any INFJ?

    They haven't a stern exterior, usually.

    The problem with Batman being INFj is that is their PoLR. Even ISFj would be more likely than INFj. They are also committed to (their) ethics and have loads of .

    i do know some infjs, and stern probably isn't the best adjective to describe their faces, so i'll correct myself on that one. when first meeting them, they don't show much expression and are quite modest, but when one gets to know them, they show great empathy and concern, though never in a theatrical manner.

    Well, isn't everything, even for Batman. It occurs to me that the problem with an ISFj Batman is the PoLR, which does not help with strategies. :wink:

    well yes, that's true. he's involved, but not in the details. INTjs hate having to deal with the details of our plans and strategies.

    If you talk about the REAL superman (yes he is real) then he has been portrayed differently at different times. But generally all the pure do gooder sacrificing superheroes are Deltas. In the latest movie Superman was likely INFj.

    If you talk about THAT superman then hard to say. Extrovert or sensory or both. Umm.

    I have to agree. The fact that is he is really overpowered is another point to Delta, I think.

    Alpha heroes usually unwilling ones. They get dragged into stuff.

    Beta heroes are the ones that have to overcome all odds to come out on top.

    Gamma heroes (and villains!) are almost invariably vigilantes motivated by revenge.

    Delta heroes are the, as you said, pure do gooder sacrificing superheroes.

    In general, anyway.
    I actually generally agree with that

    I think this is wrong somehow, type (sometimes ) heros would be more do gooder sacrificing superheros I guess. But I think the do gooder sacrificing superhero thing doesn't really fit one socionic category. LSIs and ESIs tend to do a lot of short term sacrificing for long term goals and IME these goals can be do gooderish.
    / axis doesn't give a shit about being do gooderish in theory, so I'm guessing gamma SF would be the sacrificing do gooders. But then a lot of ESIs I've met are very corrupt (Nixon for example of a messed up ESI), and can be thoroughly disgusting people.

    Superman as in Superman Returns is very clearly INFj, as the actor also seems to be. The same for the Christopher Reeve movies, but less clearly.

    Superman as in the original comic of 1938 was an ESTp.

    That particular variety of "do-gooder", as in Superman who indiscriminately saves the world from everything, is a Delta idea (Caregiving!).
    How does saving the world from everything equate to caregiving? IMO any type which chooses to protect people from the big bad outside world ( ) would probably be a sensor.

    Weird... I wonder how/when/why it changed.

    What about Lois? I tend to have a hard time deciding between SEE and LSE (or maybe even IEE???)... and I'd still be open to other suggestions. In everything I've ever seen with her in it, I keep thinking, "HOW THE HELL can you be so stupid? Do you not value your life? Would it be so hard to *insert an option here that isn't totally stupid*?" (Though in all fairness I haven't seen the first couple of movies in probably at least a decade.) It's like she's way too confident in her Se and has weak ass Te and Ni or something?

    Why? I think PoLR type could easily do that. Precisely because he would see the outside world ( ) to be big and bad and something that people shouldn't get too involved with instead of cool and exciting and full of possibilities for sexual intercourse and making big money.

    Interesting idea. It's probably more realistic to type the creators of the comics though.
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    Batman is a clear LSI, and Superman a clear SEE.

    Not really that impossible. While there may be many different writers, there is still a holistic impression that has formed about these characters that could possibly be typed.
