About This Quiz

Defining a hero is harder than you might think at first. Comic books can make it seem easy, because the hero is clearly the person in the cool costume fighting the alien menace. That seems easy to understand. But sometimes it's more subtle than that. Sometimes you need to stop and think about what made this person a hero in the first place. There's more to heroism than fighting, right? Bullies can fight, too. A hero has a character that makes them that way. A proper hero has to not just be good but selfless. They are brave even when fear overtakes them. They are determined even when the odds are stacked against them. They have hope even when all hope is lost. And for far too long the very idea of a hero has been a man's realm, and that's just not fair. The world is full of fierce and fantastic heroines that are well worth respect and admiration. But you already knew that.

You may never fight off an alien scourge, or save people from annihilation, or even sacrifice yourself for the good of another, but we're pretty sure you're doing something out there. So which fierce heroine's heart beats in your chest? Let's find out together!
