Believe it or not, food plays a huge part in comic books and their movie counterparts. Who can forget the Avengers’ shawarma post-credit scene that help to boost the U.S. shawarma industry? It’s so prominent that readers/watchers can pick out a superheroes favorite food just by reading the comics. Here is a look at 10 favorite foods of superheroes:
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES : PIZZA
The Turtles love pizza. Which is not really surprising since they live in New York, after all. But these green guys live by the code, “No to drugs, yes to pizza.”
THOR : CREAMSICLES
It seems Thor has a bit of a sweet tooth. The Norse God has a weakness for junk food, especially pop-Tarts and creamsicles. Don’t forget his appreciation for coffee!
SUPERMAN : BEEF BOURGUIGNON WITH KETCHUP
No, he is not a vegetarian. Superman is a meat eater. He enjoys beef bourguignon with ketchup so much that Lois nicknamed him BBWK.
WOLVERINE : BURGERS, CHIPS AND BEER
Wolvie likes tearing his claws into a burger or a bag of chips and a can of beer.
DEADPOOL : CHIMICHANGAS
It’s common knowledge that The Merc With The Mouth has a special love for Mexican food – deep fried chimichangas in particular.
BATMAN : STEAK & NANCHOS
In the animated The Batman, Bruce Wayne’s favorite food was nachos. That being said, he has also been known to enjoy a good steak. Then there was also that time he said, “Batman does not eat nachos!” Go figure. Alfred must have a hard time cooking up anything Bruce admires.
SPIDER-MAN : WHEAT CAKES & HOTDOGS
Wheat Cakes? What? Seems like Spidey has a strange taste for Aunt May’s wheat cakes. Bleh! On the other hand, he also loves Aunt May’s cherry pie.
MARTIAN MANHUNTER : CHOCOS
DC’s alien Martian Manhunter loves a cookie called Chocos (which are basically Oreos). In the Justice League animated series, “Comfort and Joy”, J’onn lands on a child’s roof and reaches down the chimney for cookies, which are drawn like Oreos.
