I am SpiderMan! (Hear Me Roar)

At least, according to this little online quiz. Should I be concerned that Catwoman is the third-closest match for my personality, behind Spidey and the Green Lantern and a full step ahead of Iron Man? And me a Sabbath fan since I was 16. Happy New Year! Thought we’d start 2007 out with some fun.

The genius bit about the whole thing is the leave-behind, a little snippet of code that you can insert on your website:

Your results:
You are Spider-Man

Spider-Man: 95%
Green Lantern: 80%
Catwoman: 75%
Iron Man: 65%
Robin: 60%
The Flash: 50%
Supergirl: 45%
Superman: 45%
Hulk: 40%
Wonder Woman: 35%
Batman: 20%

You are intelligent, witty, a bit geeky and have great power and responsibility.

Nice! I’ll believe the “bit geeky” part, no doubt. The quiz is clever, takes no time at all, sells itself and has this nice picture you can put on stuff. Advocacy campaigns can do things like this! Not the superhero part specifically (it’s kinda been done at this point), but the idea of the takeaway that brands you, widget-like. Something that might help you grab some of those email addresses I hear all the kids are talking about these days. Don’t forget a healthy dose of that whole “fun” thing while you’re at it. Note: be careful how you build takeaway code. In this case, it contained nested HTML tables and clashed with my stylesheet, so I had to rewrite it to get it to display even vaguely correctly. Watch out for things like that — test widely.
