Sort These Fictional Characters: Tag: Marvel Edition

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I have a fun challenge for you fellow Harry Potter fans. I had this interesting conversation with a few friends a few weeks ago. If we were to sort some of our favorite fictional characters into Hogwarts houses, where would they go? Why would they go there? So I'll go ahead and ask you too.

Today I think we should sort our Marvel characters from the Marvel universe. It's a pretty expansive universe, and so I know there's so many more to list, but these are just some of the ones I can think of sorting. If you would like to add more characters to your own list, feel free to do so!  

I'll tell you what I think, and I challenge you to sort them yourself and explain your choices.

1. Iron Man - I think Iron Man/Tony Stark is a mix between a Slytherin and a Gryffindor, but I think that he will get sorted into Slytherin. He is naturally ambitious, clever, determined, and cunning. Those are the main qualities Slytherins have. 

2. Thor - Gryffindor. He is courageous, fights for the greater good, and is confident he will be able to do anything. 

3. Black Widow - Slytherin. She is a spy, she manipulates people, and she will do whatever she can to get what she wants. 

4. Bruce Banner (human form, not the Hulk) - Ravenclaw. I feel like Bruce Banner (in human form) is the epitome of a Ravenclaw. He likes to keep to himself, and he is a very smart, intelligent scientist. 

5. Hawkeye - Hufflepuff. I don't know much about Hawkeye, but I always feel like he is one of the most loyal of the bunch. He has stuck with Black Widow/Natasha for years, and he always stays with whoever he is sided with. 

6. Captain America - Pure Gryffindor! 

7. Loki - The most perfect Slytherin, hands down. 

8. Spiderman and Peter Parker - I think Spiderman is a Gryffindor, while Peter Parker is a Ravenclaw. 

9. Wolverine - I honestly have a hard time sorting Wolverine, because he is such a complex character. I do feel like he belongs in Gryffindor though. He is brave, and doesn't really fear anything. He will do what it takes to fight for what he thinks is right.

10. Batman - This is another one I had a hard time with. I think that Batman is a mix of all houses. He is smart, is loyal, is brave, fights for the greater good, and is also very ambitious all at the same time. I can't sort him confidently, but maybe he could go to Ravenclaw. What do you guys think?


Do you agree with my choices? I tag you all to do this challenge! Post comments below, or link me to a separate post if you make one. If you want to sort other characters from the Marvel universe, feel free to do so. Next week, we'll try to sort Lord of the Rings characters! Have fun!

will always go back to this feeling I feel about books.

After a busy day at work and a good night watching the new movie, About Time, with my best friend, I finally got to go home and relax. Granted I work tomorrow (Sunday at 8:30am), but there are just some things I will never stop loving. 

I have been away from this blog for a long time - in a way, I took a long break unwillingly. I have always loved blogging, but life has been busy, and I have taken a step back. Lately though, I have been feeling inspired by so many things that it's causing me to discover new books, new blogs, and a new energy to blog again. I also have been rereading old favorites, which I think, always helps spark creativity. Tonight, these two precious books are keeping me company. 

No matter what, there is truly something about going back to pick up a familiar book. It almost feels like saying a little hello to an old friend you haven't spoken to in a while. It's such a comforting, peaceful feeling - being there in your version of a safe place.
