Oh, how times have changed!
I just asked a little boy (about 7 years old) who is the best super hero. I was thinking Batman (because, obviously, Batman is The Coolest super hero there is.)
I soon learned the error of my ways. Elastic Man is the best, because he stretches. Plus, when his arm is chopped off (you'd be surprised how often this happens) it grows right back. Or he can change it. And also, he can be a car or anything else.
That wasn't all. This little boy had clearly given the question a great deal of thought before I ever asked it. Next, is Mr. Fantastic. And then it's The Human Torch.
The Human Torch?? I've never heard of him, nor do I really care to know what his super power is. Or see him in action, come to that. And yet, he's number three on the Coolest Super Hero list!
