Posted at 5:15 pm, July 21, 2012 in Fun London

Superheroes are everywhere this summer – everywhere except London. Here at Time Out, we think that London would be the perfect home for a superhero, big or small, and here are a few reasons why…

1) Spiderman wouldn’t have to pretend to be American:

2) All the best villains are English anyway:


3) The city is full of anonymous, shady billionaires, so Bruce Wayne might finally have some mates:

4) Aquaman could live in the Thames, and everyone would understand why he’s so miserable all the time:

5) Leveson Inquiry’s focus on police corruption might leave Batman able to concentrate on other things:

6) A superhero wouldn’t be the only one wearing Lycra in Camden:

7) The Flash could earn a fortune helping people commute during the Olympics:

8) Thor really would be considered a god if he could get the rain under control:

9) Hawkeye and Green Arrow would own in the Olympics:

10) Iron Man could get his chest reactor replacements free on the NHS:

11) The Hulk would get plenty of practice controlling his anger on the tube:
