The Most Popular Superheroes By Country

The USA did not actually pick Captain America, but Spider-Man!

Those of us who love to watch all of the Marvel and DC films have probably picked a few fights about which is better: Marvel or DC. Beyond that, we’ve also probably argued about the best superhero!

As it turns out, the most popular superhero varies by country and UK-based video game retailer GAME decided to map it all out. Literally.

The company first broke the world into groups of which countries prefer Marvel and which prefer DC.

Funny enough, Captain America was a favorite for Canada and Australia.

Wonder Woman won Russia and the Hulk dominated a large part of South America.
