Favourite Marvel Super Heroes

Who hasn't read the "Marvel Comics"? As children, we idolized the Marvel Super Heroes, didn't we? Especially the 90s kids have a different bond with these humane super-humans. And the bond wasn't just our childhood obsession. The memories are etched all over our minds. But do you know, some of our Marvel heroes would have been poker legends if they were into it? Just imagine our superheroes not only winning the world but also consequent poker pots? Actually, if these heroes weren't fictional, seeing them together at a poker table, fighting each other to win the hand, would have been a real treat to the eyes. So, without further delay, let's critically analyze these heroes on the basis of poker. And you will be surprised, as the beans are spilt.

1. Iron Man: This red armoured super-human is love. He can boast of the best abilities that any man would ideally require to survive this brutal world.

Intelligence, technological knowledge, and a business instinct. Very obviously, this strong hero would have been a very successful poker player if he had taken up poker as his career. Intelligence is a must if you want to become a poker player and that is why poker is not gambling but a skill based game. The presence of technological knowledge proves that Iron Man would have mastered online poker too, quite easily. Plus, to earn money, whether by playing poker or not, you need a sharp business mind. Thus, small stake games would have been one of the best choices for him as the rule to earning a profit in such games is- earn the maximum when its time and stop the bleeding when you see the tables are against you. A business mind does just that.

2. Captain America: This hero is another hot favourite of all. Movies on him are contemporary till today, keeping in mind the period of publishing of the actual Marvel comics. The attractive blue-red armoured hero is a master of martial arts, wrestling, boxing, etc. which is why he is physically fit too. Now, those who know martial arts in the right way, very well know that the sports under this category require a lot of patience, determination, hard work, discipline, and concentration just like playing poker. Poker is a mind game and thus, is very similar to martial arts in this regard. While playing martial arts, it's necessary that you understand the mindset of your opponent to defend yourself. Similarly, you need to understand your opponent at the felt to deliver a flawless act. In addition, to bring poker under your grip, you have to be patient, dedicated, disciplined and focused. So, now you know how invincible Captain America would have been as a poker player.

3. Black Widow: Our female superheroes aren't behind in terms of poker skills. Black Widow is known for her spying expertise and athletic fitness. It is always said, a fit body is complementary to a fit mind. Thus, Black Widow would have been another Vanessa Selbst of the poker world. Using her sharp observation and mental fitness, she would have taken down innumerable poker tournaments, series, and games. And honestly, in the presence of a woman like that getting a chance would have been almost impossible!

4. Captain Marvel: She is another lady who would have taken the poker world by storm with her inherent poker skills. Captain Marvel is a skilled pilot and expert in hand to hand combat. To possess such skills, you have to be a very quick decision maker. Also, your decisions should be effective enough. This is another boon for any poker player. With an increase in the use of timers during poker games, making the correct decision at the spur of the moment becomes quite difficult. If you have a flair for taking correct decisions on the spot, your poker action would hardly go wrong, ever.

5. Hulk: A dissociated personality of the very intelligent Dr. Banner is Hulk. He is an epitomised version of strength and humane. His power is known to be directly proportional to his temper. Angrier he gets, more powerful he becomes. It is true that an emotion like anger spoils a poker player's game. But, at times, anger helps you a lot. Sometimes, all that the felt requires is aggressive gaming and surely Hulk would have been pro at this. Also, we shouldn't forget that Dr. Banner's unmatched intelligence would reign the game of probability and calculation. The poker world would have had an iconic player if the Incredible Hulk was to play professionally.

Have you ever explored the abilities of your favourite superheroes as poker players? If not, then take a walk down the memory lane with your favourite superhero and you will exactly understand what I am talking about.
