QUIZ: What Gay Superhero Energy Do You Need for 2022?

Well, the New Year is upon us! If you can believe it! And I cannot! It is kind of still March 2020 in my own head! But, no — time waits for no pandemic, and so we must march on into January 2022. But I thought maybe you, like me, could use a superheroic reminder of what kind of energy you should be carrying with you. So I made you a quiz!

I know you’ll say some of these characters are supervillains and not superheroes — but I disagree! (Sometimes. Mostly. In some incarnations.)

  1. Alex Danvers ! Squeee !

    “The willingness to look forward, to embrace what really matters to you, and a lean-in to your protective instincts is what you need to take with you into the New Year.”

    This rocks.

  2. Slightly disappointed not to get Alex Danvers but Thunder and “The knowledge that you are a damn badass — no matter what anyone around you tries to make you believe — is what you need to take with you into the New Year” I can definitely get behind!

  3. The Question: “A little bit of mystery, a whole lot of swagger, and a new outfit that makes you feel sexy and/or powerful as all heck is what you need to take into the New Year.”

    Given my username here this seems just right.

  4. I’m positive the reason my result didn’t speak to me: women’s water polo wasn’t a choice in the Olympics section 🤓 🎖

    (That and I picked the gaming system based on looks, since I haven’t used any of those)

    Thanks for the diversion, Heather!

  5. “A willingness to let go of your past and embrace your future — in your career, your hobbies, with your family, and in love — is what you need to take with you into the New Year”.

    Strangely accurate…Although I haven’t watch the new Batwoman.

  6. I’ve been obsessed with figure skating since I came across one of Ashley Wagner’s routines in high school. She is gorgeous, outspoken, and there is so much strength and grace in her movements. I was so gay for her and didn’t even realize at the time, lol.
