Superman, Batman, Spiderman and Iron Man are comic book superheroes who we have become equated with over the years. From blockbuster movies to games and comic books, these heroes protect the world from threats no normal human can overcome. We got to thinking, if we could assemble a team of heroes with the coolest water and air based powers, who would be on it? In honor of National Comic Book Day, here are our members of the FiltersFast Fab 5:
Aquaman: The obvious choice. He lives under water in the kingdom of Atlantis and has telepathic abilities to communicate with marine life. He can also breathe under water and swim at incredibly high speeds giving Michael Phelps a run for his Olympic golds.
The Flash: He may not have water or air powers per say, but he can move, think and react at superhuman speeds. He can also vibrate through walls and run on water. That alone is enough to warrant inclusion on this team.
Storm: No good superhero team is complete without the female heroine. She can make it rain one minute or terribly windy the next all before settling on a nice sunny day. Who doesn’t wish we could control the weather especially when it ruins our outdoor plans?
Superman: The quintessential superhero who can literally do it all. He can fly through air, inhale and exhale huge volumes of air with tremendous force and see all 7 oceans of the earth before we even eat breakfast.
The Water Guardian: He’s a newbie compared to the other veterans, but if you’ve been playing The Water Guardian (if you haven’t, shame on you) then you know all about him. He’s on a quest to stop waterborne contaminates from polluting the water supply with nothing but a sword and a water purification tablet. Cryptosporidium better watch his back.
