Lots of people wish they were superheroes and the mobile social media network Skout has the proof. Skout recently commissioned a survey asking people various superhero-related questions. The results of the survey revealed people do put a high value on the ethics and selflessness superheroes are known for.
80% of the respondents to the survey said they wanted to be superheroes themselves. No, they do not think they need to be bitten by a radioactive spider or build a powerful flying suit made of iron. The respondents all revealed they felt being a good person in the community and doing things to help others is what makes someone a superhero.
That is not to say the people in the survey did not have any comic book-style aspirations. Many wished they had the superpower of immortality and many do wish they had access to the Batmobile. Neither of those goals are likely to be achieved, but it is nice to dream.
Those questioned in the survey revealed their love for comic book heroes with Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman all coming out on top. Apparently, the D.C. Comics’ heroes seem to be more popular than the Marvel ones right now. Maybe that is all thanks to the hype surrounding Batman v. Superman when the survey was being taken.
There is no hype surrounding the special promotion Skout is performing in conjunction with the survey. Skout remains one of the most popular mobile social networking apps on the planet with members located in countries all around the world. Skout has asked its members to send a “superhero-themed virtual gift” to friends to celebrate National Superhero Day. For each gift sent, Skout will perform an incredibly heroic act. A monetary amount will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Greater Bay Area in California. This way, the good people at Make-A-Wish can continue to help little kids’ dreams continue to come true.
Skout performs a number of these types of charitable endeavors. The superhero theme does have a nice, unique touch to it.
