Which Action Hero are You?

I took a photo of myself with the cheap little digital camera I keep in my purse and Andy Warhol'd it, trying my best for a dead serious "action hero" look. hmmm. Maybe I need a Indiana Jones hat from Blackwater, two .45's and a whip. In any event, I have to work late, and just have time for a short break and a quiz for you tonight.

Which Action Hero Would You Be?


You Scored as Lara Croft

A thrill-seeking, slightly unscrupulous, tough-as-nails archaeologist, Lara Croft travels the world in search of ancient relics perhaps better left hidden. She packs two Colt .45s and has no fear of jumping off buildings, exploring creepy tombs, or taking on evil meglomaniacs bent on world domination.

Which action hero are you? I'm thinking Jay G. will be William Wallace. Borepatch? - Captain Jack Sparrow. Ahab and possibly RobD - the Amazing Spider Man. Carteach? - the Dark Night.

" ...What's that Father?...Aye,I'll ask him...

Greybeard said...

A tie betwix, Maximus, and Neo.

Editor, W.W. is cool!

Rev. Paul said...

Maximus

Bruce B. said...

Ahem, Lara Croft but significantly high scores for the Dark Knight, Maximus-Spidey tie, and William Wallace-Indy tie @ 67%
Does that mean I have MPD? :-)

Marlowe said...

scored as 007 (blush)

Borepatch said...

You know, Lara Croft may be scary-accurate. Heh.

My favorite Captain Jack Sparrow quote:

"Um, no. I'm not that kind of pirate. I have a ship."

;-)

I could see Jay as William Wallace, though ...

Actually, mine is the same as Greybeard's.

Carteach0 said...

I came up as Neo.

Neo?

NEO?!?

Gotta be kidding me. (g)

Jay G said...

Brigid,

Damn, you are good. Very close, but not quite:

You Scored as Maximus

After his family was murdered by the evil emperor Commodus, the great Roman general Maximus went into hiding to avoid Commodus's assassins. He became a gladiator, hoping to dominate the colosseum in order to one day get the chance of killing Commodus. Maximus is valiant, courageous, and dedicated. He wants nothing more than the chance to avenge his family, but his temper often gets the better of him.

Maximus 71%
William Wallace 71%
The Terminator 71%
Captain Jack Sparrow 67%
The Amazing Spider-Man 67%
Batman, the Dark Knight 67%
Neo, the "One" 54%
Lara Croft 54%
Indiana Jones 50%
James Bond, Agent 007 42%
El Zorro 21%

It was a tie, with the tie-breaking questions having to do with family. Mea culpa.

So, I'm the Italian action hero. Go figure.

Fahgedaboudit!

LauraB said...

You had me at "whip". HA! (Why didn't anyone else go there? Or am I the worst of this bunch?! Och, now there's a thought...)

Me? Batman, the Dark Knight
With Lara Rising

YeOldFurt said...

Well, I'll be -- William Wallace. I always did like the little tyke.

Michael W. said...

Strange, I always saw myself as Palidin........-grin-

Mead Chick said...

I came out as Captain Jack Sparrow. Closely followed by a three-way tie between Lara Croft, Maximus, and El Zorro....

Wonder what that means....hmmm

leadchucker said...

Tied between Maximum, Indiana Jones, and William Wallace. Which is good.... I REALLY didn't want to wear tights.... A kilt, sure, tights, no way....

Sigboy said...

Indiana Jones, and no, you may not wear my hat.

TrueBlueSam said...

Indiana Jones.....but I am NOT giving up my chainsaws!

Brigid said...

Mead chick - what does that mean?. .

Home made mead for everyone!!!

Ambulance Driver said...

Terrified minion of Sumdood: "Who are you???"

AD: "I'm...Batman."

PA State Cop said...

Maximus or William Wallace for a dead tie. I can handle that.

Mikael said...

Batman 79%
Neo 71%
The Terminator 54%
William Wallace 54%
And then a four way tie at 50% between:
Captain Jack Sparrow
Maximus
Spiderman
and Zorro.

Anonymous said...

Maximus. Tie-breaker was family or kilt. Picked family, but as I'm Scot - Welsh - Danish - German, I have no problem wearing a kilt. And only a kilt. And maybe a t-shirt.
OldeForce

drjim said...

Hmmmmm79% tie at James Bond and Neo.
Bond I could be, but maybe not so Neo!

Randy said...

Captain Jack Sparrow. Followed by Indiana Jones. Must be my sarcasm and hat collection!

Randy

William the Coroner said...

Bond. James Bond.

and the w/v is dingled. Now is that appropriate for 007?

Stan in Minnesota said...

William Wallace 100%! Excuse me while I turn my back and moo.........never mind.

If I had been here earlier I WOULD have been the first to make a whip comment.

Oswald Bastable said...

Captain Jack Sparrow

Anonymous said...

I come up with "Batman" by 12%.

But in real life, I'd be The Spleen.

The Antibubba

The Suburban Bushwacker said...

Suburban Bushwacker? What the hell kind of name is that? It's like some sort of superhero or something

SBW: What makes you think I'm not?

Jim

Brigid said...

Michael - I wish Paladin had been a choice!

Bummer is, most of my favorite action heroes aren't on that list.
What about Paladin? Any of the Clint Eastwood characters? Sharpe? Jack Aubrey? Rooster Cogburn? Quigley? Samuel Spade?

Anonymous said...

Maybe I'm just babbling nonsense here, having never played the video games Lara Croft "stars" in, but I thought Angelina Jolie was carrying Desert Eagle movie guns in the Tomb Raider movies?

Though I'll admit *those* guns didn't have my full attention during the movies....

-W

Ed Rasimus said...

Bond, James Bond...

I suspected that but was hoping for Maximus or maybe William Wallace. I guess the guns and tech thing moved me out of that.

Nice clothes, good food, subtlety sometimes, confidence and irresistable to women....maybe my fantasies are taking hold.

Nah, I'm too old to live them out any more.

Jenifer said...

I tied -- James Bond and the Terminator. Whoa. I'm cool. =D

J.R.Shirley said...

You're much too smart to be Laura Croft. Unfortunately(?), I can't go to quizfarm from school...

William the Coroner said...

This begs the question, what do stunt breasts actually DO?

ajdshootist said...

Batman 83% would have liked the quiz more if the had Josey Wales as an answer,good fun tho.

Kelly said...

William Wallace. Ouch!

davkt said...

You Scored as Neo, the "One"

Neo is the computer hacker-turned-Messiah of the Matrix. He leads a small group of human rebels against the technology that controls them. Neo doubts his ability to lead but doesn't want to disappoint his friends. His goal is for a world where all men know the Truth and are free from the bonds of the Matrix.

J B said...

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

Cool :-)

Oz said...

No John McClane?

Brigid said...

JB - you probably don't want to now how many times I've watched Gladiator,

J B said...

Me too. :-)

I wore out my VHS (remember those) now I need to get the DVD. Same with my Heat and Goodfellas tapes.

Somerled said...

William Wallace (88 percent) here, then Maximus and Indiana Jones.

Serr8d said...

Bond.

Love your site, BTW. )

Cliff Smith said...

William Wallace

Serr8d said...

Thanks for the visit, Brigid, and your kind words.

That's Nashville's night skyline, taken from the Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge, right after the Titans preseason game against the Rams last August. Which reminds me..I've got to swap that out for something more springlike. Maybe even a new template is in order. Spring cleaning and all of that..

J.R.Shirley said...

I had a tie between Batman and Maximus. The quiz asked me to choose between family and a secret hideout. If I chose family, I was Maximus. If I choose hideout...

You Scored as Maximus

Maximus 83%
William Wallace 71%
James Bond, Agent 007 63%

Hmmm...that's interesting. Maximus, yes. Wallace, yes. But Bond??? Who'd a thunk it?

Ed said...

Most any Louis L'amour Good/Bad Guy. Porter in Payback. Han Solo - Han shot first. Sean Connery's 007.Jason Bourne. Maximus's Father. The Man Who Never Missed. Kato. Viking's in the 13th Warrior....

Little Joe said...

Batman - The Dark Knight was my result.

I find that very interesting since Batman has always been my favorite.

Joe

Big Cat said...

For some reason the quiz won't let me past the first page so I don't know which one I am. Well, I know but...that would just me being vain so...I don't know.

RobD said...

I am so misunderstood...

It's not who I am underneath, but what I *do* that defines me.

You Scored as Batman, the Dark Knight

As the Dark Knight of Gotham, Batman is a vigilante who deals out his own brand of justice to the criminals and corrupt of the city. He follows his own code and is often misunderstood. He has few friends or allies, but finds comfort in his cause.

Batman, the Dark Knight 88%
William Wallace 88%
Lara Croft 79%
Maximus 75%
Indiana Jones 75%
The Amazing Spider-Man 71%
Neo, the "One" 67%
The Terminator 54%
James Bond, Agent 007 54%
El Zorro 46%
Captain Jack Sparrow 46%

It ended with a tie breaker question that made me choose between wearing a kilt or a cool tool belt so The Dark Knight came out above William Wallace.
