Superheroes' Favorite Foods

There are more and more comic book movies coming out every year. While you are gorging on popcorn and enjoying these flicks, take a moment to think about what your favorite costumed superheroes like to devour. Here are some of their favorite foods.

Batman : Steak

Batman doesn't actually enjoy eating any food, being as how he is perpetually in a dour mood. However, it has been said that cooking up a steak relaxes him. So next time a supervillain wants to take over Gotham, perhaps he should line the streets with grills and raw meat.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : Pizza 

Unless you've been living underneath a half shell, you no doubt know that these four turtles love to chomp on pizza. They live in New York City, after all.

Spider-Man : Aunt May's Cherry Pie

Peter Parker is a huge fan of everything that comes out of Aunt May's kitchen, but his absolute favorite has to be her cherry pie. Thank goodness he didn't inherit a spider's taste for insects along with its powers.

Thor : Junk Food

Thor is quite literally a God, so you'd think his favorite food would be giant lamb shanks or something. Alas, this Norse God has a weakness for junk food. From Pop-Tarts to creamsicles, Thor's sweet tooth knows no bounds.

Iron Man : Burgers and Booze

Tony Stark is a known, how can we put this nicely? Enjoyer of life. Thus, he likes to nosh on decadent burgers and wash them down with as much booze as his arc reactor-enhanced liver can take.

Captain America : Apple Pie 

Captain America loves all things pure and American, so, of course he regularly partakes in the consumption of apple pie. Too bad baseball isn’t edible.

Wolverine : Chips and Beer 

Wolvie likes tearing his claws into a bag of chips and a can of beer, bub. His bones might be laced with the priciest metal money can buy, but his tastes lie more with pub fare. Snikt.

Popeye : Spinach 

When Popeye eats a can of his beloved spinach, he turns from wimp to superhero in two seconds flat. Wimpy often dreams for the same thing to happen to him when he eats a burger.

The Flash :  Buffets

The Flash has never been given a favorite food in the comics, but he has the metabolism of 1,000 rabid hummingbirds. With that said, it's easy to see him going crazy at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Superman : Beef Bourguignon With Ketchup

Superman is an American icon, so naturally his favorite food is French staple beef bourguignon. Hey, he adds cloyingly sweet ketchup. That part is American.

Galactus : Planets

Is there anything tastier than a perfectly cooked planet filled with carbon-based life forms? Galactus, the renowned planet eater, agrees there is not.
