You can be any superhero who would it be? How do you think you will age in real life. A study of their lifestyles shows many will suffer from chronic health conditions in old age. Researchers in Australia conclude that, in the real world, these powerful characters are more prone to dementia, life-changing physical injuries, and disability because of their exposure to loud noises, air pollution, and head injuries. The Incredible Hulk-heart problems, excess weight, and near-constant anger means he is at risk from a range of chronic diseases. Black Widow– traumatic childhood means she is more likely to become physically and mentally ill later in life. Spider-man– strong, flexible, and agile, should be less likely to fall when he is old. However, his nightly crime fighting means he is unlikely to be getting the eight to ten hours sleep experts recommend for teenagers — making Marvel’s famous webslinger more prone to mental health problems, obesity, and unintentional injuries. Of the Marvel movies released between 2008 and 2021. They found superheroes get regular exercise, which is good for their long-term health. They also live in places which are socially cohesive and connected, which reduces their risk of dementia. Superheroes are also positive, optimistic, resilient, and have a sense of purpose, all of which have a scientific link to healthy aging. With the exception of Thor and Iron Man, these characters do not drink heavily or smoke, which helps them live longer as well. Additionally, both Black Panther and Iron Man are very rich and clever, which reduces their risk of dementia. Black Panther is also vegetarian, which helps keep wrinkles at bay. Conclusion…like the average person, superheroes need to exercise regularly and have strong friendships and relationships if they are going to age well (LINK)
