If Superheroes Had Types…

    Yesterday, I had a thought: what if superheroes had types and type combos, like Pokémon? I then went on to theorise what some popular superheroes’ types might be:

    • Superman - Flying/Steel (because he’s the Man of Steel, get it?)
    • Batman - Dark/Flying
    • Aquaman - Water/Fighting (pretty obvious)
    • Spiderman - Bug/Flying
    • Wonder Woman - Normal/Fighting
    • The Incredible Hulk - Fighting
    • Captain America - Fighting/Steel
    • Iron Man - Steel/Flying (also an obvious one)
    • Wolverine - Steel/Dark
    • The Thing - Rock/Fighting
    • The Human Torch - Fire/Psychic
    • Rocket Raccoon - Fighting/Normal
    • Groot - Grass
    If you know any other superheroes, why not try coming up with types for them?

    I thought he’d be Electric/Fighting. Because, you know, THUNDER-Bird. ;)

    And I know she’s not really a superhero (more like a super-villain), but Catwoman would be Dark/Ghost.

    Of course, superheroes don’t have to be from the Marvel and DC universes. ;)

    Daggeron sounds like Dragon, so maybe he’d be a Dragon type? ;)

    Blossom I think would be Ice rather than Grass given her ice breath powers.

    Would the Crystal Gems be considered superheroes since Steven Universe is kind of inspired by the likes of Sailor Moon and The Powerpuff Girls? If so...
    • Steven - Normal/Fairy
    • Garnet - Fighting/Psychic
    • Amethyst - Normal/Fighting (she used to be a wrestler)
    • Pearl - Psychic/Fairy (she can create holograms from her gem)
    • Ruby - Fighting/Fire (because of her hot temper)
    • Sapphire - Psychic/Ice (because she can see into the future, and she has freeze powers)
    • Lapis Lazuli - Water/Flying (because she can grow wings made of water)
    • Jasper - Rock/Fighting
    • Malachite - Water/Dark
    • Opal - Fairy/Fighting (because she’s an archer)
    • Rainbow Quartz - Normal/Fighting
    • Rose Quartz - Normal/Fairy

    Wouldn't they all be rock type, cause they are rocks? :p

    Anyway here's some more

    Peridot: Psychic/Steel
    Bismuth: Steel/Fighting

    Smokey Quartz: Fairy/Normal
    Sunstone: Fire/Fairy
    Obsidian: Rock/Fire
    Corrupted Jasper: Rock/Poison
    Topaz: Fighting/Rock
    Flourite: Bug/normal
    Yellow Diamond: Electric/Fighting
    Blue Diamond: Water/Psychic
    White Diamond: Psychic/Fairy
    The Sneeple King: Poison/Fighting

    I also think Ruby and Sapphire should get the fire and ice types (respectively) on top of the ones you suggested.

    Well, yes, but I didn't want them to all be Rock types because that would be boring. The Fire and Ice thing for Ruby and Sapphire also fits them perfectly, because Rube is 'hot' and fiery-tempered while Sapph is 'cool' and more even-headed. Sapph also has ice powers.

    What type would Stevonnie be, since they're a human fusion? I'd probably think Normal/Fighting, since Connie has been seen fighting with swords in several episodes.

    I think Stevonnie would be Psychic/Fighting. . . Connie is a sword fighter, but Steven has a lot of healing and psychic powers.
