Becoming a Superhero With Skout

Did you know that you do not need to be Batman, Superman, Flash or The Wondertwins to be a super hero? With the SKOUT app, you can be one of the celebrated superheroes in America. SKOUT celebrated the National Superheroes Day this year in a unique fashion that involved conducting a survey of real life superheroes in America. This survey not only identified the most celebrated real life superheroes but also identified the most important values of a superhero.

According to the survey, the most celebrated American superheroes are the mighty Superman for men on the one hand and the charismatic Batman for ladies. Other cherished superheroes are Robin (53%), The Thing and the Human Torch (19%), Green Hornet and Kato (16%) and the formidable Wonder Twins at 12% of the respondents.

When it comes to their qualities, not every trait was associated with superheroes. One trait was their unique sense of dressing and accessories. 57% of the respondents held the view that the most important accessory that a superhero adorns is the mask. This is perhaps so since most of these superheroes put on masks. However, others included rings (44%) and cool belt (10%).

The second and most important attribute identified of superheroes is their character. Selflessness topped the list of the interviewees where almost three out of four interviewees were of the opinion that being a superhero involves helping others who are in need. Fearlessness followed selflessness at 37%, while technology and money were pointed out by 11% and 8% of the respondents respectively.

The big question is, ‘Are you a superhero?’ An answer to this question is not disappointing as one might conclude since according to the survey, 80% of those interviewed expressed an intention to be superheroes in real life. To make people the superheroes that they have always wanted to be, SKOUT has come up with an app in which virtual gifts can be sent to people, pets and organizations which are in need. Since its inception, over 400,000 virtual gifts have been given to deserving people through a number of charitable initiatives. For instance, SKOUT was immensely involved in assisting the more than 30,000 people who were facing hunger in San Francisco, Marin. Additionally, thousands of dogs and cats have been adopted.

It is your turn and my turn to be the superheroes that this great country needs.
