article imageIs Iron-Man, Thor or Batman your state's favorite superhero?

By Earl Dittman     Sep 17, 2014 in Entertainment
Why is Wolverine more popular in Texas than Spider-Man? What makes the Hulk so fashionable in Pennsylvania? Check out how your favorite superhero's likability and recognition factor rates across America's 50 states.
Movoto, the real estate brokerage, has figured out – geographically speaking – how well "Liked" 10 of pop culture's biggest superheroes are across the United States. Just how did they do it? According to the Movoto Real Estate Blog, they used the magic of science (which, as Thor would tell you, are one in the same), to create their awesome set of maps.
They researched the number of Facebook users in each state who have "Liked" each of the ten most popular superheroes: Spider-Man, Batman, Iron Man, Superman, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Wonder Woman, Wolverine and Green Lantern. Next, the put the data into a spreadsheet, did some number crunching, and BAM! they came up with this map. Again, the link to all of their superhero maps is http://www.movoto.com/blog/opinions/most-liked-superheroes-map/ However, here are a few highlights from their insightful research:

According to Natalie Grigson, a staff writer for the Movoto blog, "After Batman (who was Number One), the superhero who was the next best Liked was Iron Man — however, may we suggest you not tell him that. This self-admitted textbook narcissist would only deign to be Number One.. Well, at least he was close to numero uno in a few states where he had a high percentage of Likes. In Utah, Alaska, and Nevada the genius playboy billionaire philanthropist was Liked by 2.61, 2.51, and 2.07 percent of the populations, respectively."
CAPTAIN AMERICA

"Captain America may have been the First Avenger, but that doesn’t mean that he was first in the hearts of Americans, at least on Facebook. Out of all the states, though, the ones where he was more Liked were Utah, Nevada, New York, Arizona, and California; and the ones where he was least appreciated were Mississippi, Alabama, and Minnesota."
WOLVERINE

"Wolverine may not have been the most Liked in any of the states, but he was pretty popular in a few of them. In Michigan, for example, he ripped it up, with 1.23 percent of the population Liking him (maybe a certain school might want to ask him to be their mascot?). He was also pretty popular in Ohio, with .31 percent and Arkansas, with .21 percent. Maybe it’s because he’s Canadian?"
Oh, by the way, Movoto is an online real estate brokerage based in San Mateo, CA. They have been recognized for our unique approach to city-based research all across the country.
