Utah is a unique state when it comes to comic books.
But Utah was unique in that it had two favorite characters from two sides of the comic book aisle.
Both Batman and Captain America topped Utah’s favorite list.
UDish.com’s report used Google Trends and search data to compile its rankings.
“One state, Utah, celebrates both sides of the universe, with Captain America and Batman ranking as residents’ favorite superheroes from either universe. Utahns rejoice every time they spot any Marvel or DC superhero,” the report said.
Other states showed unique favorites, too. For example, New York listed Daredevil as its favorite, while Virginia preferred Luke Cage, and Hawaii liked Aquaman.
Michigan, meanwhile, preferred Wolverine (though it’s possible Michigan fans were searching for the University of Michigan’s football team, who are the Wolverines).1 comment on this story
Black Panther was only listed as a favorite in Maryland, of all places.
The report also identified whether each state preferred Marvel or DC Comics. Most states championed Marvel. Only Utah, North and South Dakota, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia and Washington, D.C., preferred DC characters.
Last year, a report from Decluttr.com, where customers can buy and trade electronic items, found that Wonder Woman was Utah’s favorite superhero. Spider-Man won over the entire nation, according to the Deseret News.
