Super Hotties to the Rescue!
The most date-worthy heroes on the big screen
We’re all looking for similar traits in a man: someone who’s smart, funny, has a caring heart, and can fly us over the city in his arms.
OK, so maybe we’ll forgo that last one. Not every guy can actually fly, after all. Some can only build billion-dollar suits that fly. We can look past that.
When it comes to big screen superheroes, there are certainly a bevy of eligible bachelors to choose from. But don’t worry, ladies — we’ve compiled a list of our faves here.
And while these men don’t exist in real life, we are totally fine with pretending.
Tony Stark, aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man 3)
Every smart girl out there knows there’s nothing sexier than a man with brains, and Tony Stark has intellect to spare. Not only can he build a fleet of super high-tech suits of armor that can fly in seemingly no time at all, but he’s got one snarky sense of humor! Of course, his billion-dollar bank account doesn’t hurt either.
Clark Kent, aka Kal-El, aka Superman (Henry Cavill, Man of Steel)
Superman pretty much has it all, including perfect hair that can somehow withstand flying at really high altitudes (yes, we’re super jealous). As far as aliens go, he’s the only one we’d ever even consider taking home to meet the fam. And if he ever gets out of line, all you need is a little Kryptonite to put him in his place — as if that would ever happen.
Charles Xavier, aka Professor X (James McAvoy, X-Men: Days of Future Past)
We dare you not to fall for McAvoy’s baby blues and devilish grin in the latest X-Men installment (though yes, Patrick Stewart did play the more well-known Professor X). Plus, we could certainly put his mind-controlling talent to good use. Instant admission to any red carpet event out there? Yes, please!
Logan, aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman, The Wolverine)
There’s just something inherently sexy about a rough and rugged “man’s man,” and Wolverine is one superhero who’s about as rough and rugged as they come. And he also has arguably the most enviable powers: accelerated healing abilities, near immortality, and a skeleton fused together with the almost indestructible metal adamantium, which manifests itself as some seriously deadly claws. Now he’s the kind of protective boyfriend we’d love to have!
Thor (Chris Hemsworth, Thor: The Dark World)
He’s got super strength, a hammer that can knock any particularly pesky villain (or throne-usurping half-brother) into a tree hundreds of feet away, and he’s by far the best looking guy in all of Asgard. Did we mention that he’s also the god of thunder, as well as heir to an entire godly kingdom? Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster definitely lucked out when she decided to study that strange weather phenomenon in New Mexico!
Bobby Drake, aka Iceman (Shawn Ashmore, X-Men: Days of Future Past)
He can turn anything to ice with a single touch, which could certainly come in handy on a hot summer night. But Bobby Drake is more than just a means of cooling our favorite cocktail — he’s one of the hottest mutants in the Marvel Universe, having won the affections of both Anna Paquin’s Rogue and Ellen Page’s Shadowcat. We’re don’t know who he’ll romance in Days of Future Past, but we’ll definitely be picturing ourselves in her place.
Erik Lehnsherr, aka Magneto (Michael Fassbender, X-Men: Days of Future Past)
Alright, alright, so he’s technically more of a super villain than a superhero, but every girl needs at least one bad boy to swoon over, doesn’t she? The ability to manipulate and control magnetic fields, a seriously sexy accent — obvi. swoon-worthy. Plus, he wasn’t always a villain, so we can hold out hope that he might change his evil ways. Right?
Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans, Captain America: The Winter Soldier)
The name says it all. Captain America is more American than grandma’s apple pie. Sure, his strength and (uh-mazing!) physique are the result of a secret government experiment, but it doesn’t mean he’s any less of a catch. He’s like a US Marine times a thousand. And you know there’s nothing better than a soldier in uniform (let’s just forget that his is made of spandex).
