In my latest KeyMan University blog, I’ve decided to uncover a little more about our Jurisdictional Officers. I achieved this by questioning a majority of them regarding their favorite superheros, and the reasons that went into their choosing.
Joseph Bell, Brian Martin, and Cole Benfer:
Joseph, Brian, and Cole all selected Batman as their favorite superhero. Joseph’s reason was that Batman was the first superhero he read about, and it has stuck with him to the present day. Brian had chosen Batman because he is just a mortal man that had mastered martial arts, and though he is mortal he risks his life to defeat evil. Cole’s own reasons were that Batman, out of his own volition decides to serve justice and bring discipline to criminals.
Jacob Beers and Andrew Santilli:
Both Andrew and Jacob agreed in that their favorite superhero was Iron Man. Andrew’s reason being Iron Man has expertise with technology and Andrew himself shows an interest in technology. Jacob’s own reasoning was that Iron Man makes use of his vast fortune in an attempt to help others.
Garrett’s favorite superhero is Tinkerbell. Garret’s reasoning was that Tinkerbell has wings and though small she rises above expectations of her, which is one of the requisites of being a member of DeMolay.
Cade’s favorite superhero is Captain America and his reasons are that Captain America is patriotic, caring, compassionate, and strong.
Eric Dye and Samuel Levin:
Eric’s and Samuel’s chose Daredevil as their favorite superhero. Samuel’s reasoning is that even though Daredevil is a flawed person he is still capable of making the world a better place. Eric’s reason is that Daredevil is a very good listener, which makes for exceptional crime fighting capabilities.
Matthew’s favorite superhero is Antman. Matthew’s reason for this is that Antman can shrink down and observe people living their life.
Gabriel’s favorite superhero is Nightwing; His reason for this is Nightwing used to admire Batman and wanted to be like him, however, he has since then changed his views, but still decided to emulate the Dark Knight. Gabriel is much like Nightwing himself, he used to admire someone and wanted to be just like him, later however, he decided he wanted to be his own man.
Sean’s favorite superhero is Thor. Sean’s reason for choosing Thor is that he has a “cool hammer.”
Alejandro’s favorite superhero is Storm. Alejandro’s reason is Storm is very passionate about her teammates.
David’s favorite superhero is Superman. David’s reason for this is that Superman can fly.
Raymond’s favorite superhero is Green Lantern. Raymond’s reason is that Green Lantern’s powers grant him the capability to do anything he puts his mind to as long as his will remains strong.
Among us KeyMen, the Jurisdictional Officers are looked upon as idols and by extension superheroes, and its nice to have a better understanding of some of the thoughts that go into their own personal tastes. This is especially true in regards to understanding their own favorite superheroes, with reasons that might echo our own reasons for thinking of them in the same light.
