You don’t have to know anything about the superheros other than what they look like. Some helpful pictures follow!
The Premise: Most mainstream superheros can be placed into one of four categories.
(Interesting to Note: Markedly few characters seem to fit into this category. Deadman and Nite Owl are just about the only two heroes I've found.)
The Flash: (My favorite picture of him was taken from a group shot. Please ignore the surrounding characters.)
The Challenge: Figure out how all these characters are categorized!
As before, I'll take any question calling for a yes or no.
*Again, special knowledge of the characters is not needed. You can solve this with images only.
*Gender is irrelevant. Please ignore the fact that almost all of the characters shown are men.
*Because a character's appearance can change, so can the character's category. I've chosen the ones above because they represent near constants.
*There are also many characters who cannot be categorized into one of the four groups. It happens that most super-villains can't, for whatever reason, though some can.
I'll give examples of changing characters and un-categorized characters upon request. If you're really curious where some other superhero falls, let me know and I'll follow up.
