If you're a devoted Iron Man fan, then you understand the importance of using your mind in a way that few other people do. You love being the center of attention and your quick wit and humor tend to make you the life of the party. Because you're very intelligent, you have to make sure you don't always assume that you need to fix every problem as soon as it presents itself.

Take a moment to consider all the possible consequences before you jump right in to an idea, and don't be afraid to ask for help from your friends, to whom you tend to be very loyal.

If the Captain is your favorite Marvel character, then you're probably a genuinely good person who values things like honor and doing the right thing. Standing up for what's right matters so much to you that you'll always stick to your principles even when it isn't convenient. You put the needs of others before your own and are incredibly loyal to the people and causes you care about.

You're also one of those rare people who still stops to help old ladies cross the street, and you tend to be the person your friends come to with their problems because they know they can trust you.

If you can't help but cheer every time Thor comes onto the scene, then you likely value strength and loyalty. You see your body as an asset and probably hit the gym a few times a week to make sure you take care of it. Under all that muscle, however, you're a sincerely nice person and will always be there for your friends and family, even if they don't always return the favor.

You always love a great adventure and never turn down a challenge. That said, you're not used to losing, so be careful not to take it too personally if you occasionally find yourself struggling to live up to expectations.

If you're a Black Widow fan, then you're very comfortable in your own skin and aren't afraid to say what's on your mind. You understand what makes people tick and are the type of person who can easily gain the trust of others because you understand them so well. You're sometimes surprised to find that others mistake your calm demeanor and practicality for insensitivity.

You may be slow to let people see the "real you" due to your talent for showing people what you want them to see, but when you do make friends, there's nothing you wouldn't do for them.
