What Super Hero Does Your State Prefer?

These days it seems that every month brings with it a new superhero movie - in fact, caped crusaders who used to only be found in the pages of comic books are now everywhere - online, on TV, in magazines and everywhere in between. Each character is unique and most people have a favorite, but which is the most popular in each state? decided to delve deeper into that and figured out every state's favorite female superhero.

To conduct their research, they took the top ten female Marvel superheroes and the top 10 female DC superheroes and compared that list to Google trends, and the results are pretty surprising. 

First off, what wasn't surprising is that some of the most popular female superheroes on the small and big screens were also the most popular in the states. "Wonder Woman" is bigger than any other, topping the list in seven states, followed by "Supergirl" and "Jessica Jones," who each were beloved in six states, and "Batgirl," who took four states. 

Then things get interesting. Lots of states are unique in their favorites - Utah, the Beehive State, loves "Wasp" from Ant-Man; Delaware's residents adore "Gamorra," the character played by Zoe Saldana in the Guardians of the Galaxy flicks; Georgians love "Shuri" from Black Panther; Idaho is obsessed with "Valkyrie," who was introduced to mainstream audiences in Thor: Ragnarok; Maryland's favorite is "Storm" from The X-Men; DC Comic's "Hawkgirl" is the fave in Montana; ratings for The CW's Arrow must be good in Rhode Island, where "Huntress," who is seen on that series, is number one; and Wyoming's favorite is "Scarlet Witch," played by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel flicks.
