Superheroes, by the virtue of their very being, are entities who deserve to be looked up to. Strength is usually what they embody, but the new age superhero is so much more! Right from being far from perfect and vulnerable (remember Deadpool?) to being unapologetically themselves to the verge of being arrogant (Hi, Mr Stark), superheroes today are not just your run of the mill saviours who’d flex their guns and have damsels in distress ready to be rescued. They are more humane, and the lines are thinning so fast, that even their superhuman ‘good looks’ can serve as inspiration for us lesser mortals – on a scale that is unbelievably achievable. Keeping that in mind, we have come up with a list of 7 superheroes whose facial hair are giving us legit goals. Take a look.
1. Iron Man
Tony Stark is rich, and he looks rich, courtesy that carefully shaped, slender yet powerful beard and moustache. There is something inexplicably classy and firm about that moustache that says ‘no-nonsense’, not to mention rich. Let’s call it the ‘Gaziliionaire Moustache’, shall we?
Apart from being the supremely powerful God of Thunder, Thor is also one of the, err, ‘prettiest’ superheroes (well we’re just echoing popular sentiments). As much as we loved his long locks and perfectly conditioned beard and moustache, we got to see his facial hair game is actually on point when he had to get rid of his long hair during Ragnarok.
Apart from making women all over the world go weak in the knees, Aquaman also makes men all over the world go green with envy, when it comes to his beard, moustache, and hair, not to mention his physique. He makes ‘wild’ look aesthetic and if that’s not impressive, we don’t know what is.
4. Dr Strange
Dr Strange’s beard and moustache is not so regular, and is well-calculated, much like his unusual superpowers. Want a sophisticated, well-groomed look that will make people take you seriously (at least at the first glance)? Go for Dr Strange’s facial hairdo.
Wolverine has always had an extremely unusual, wolfish patch of beard (and sometimes, a moustache too) – that exhibits as much savagery as his Adamantium claws. We’re not sure how advisable it is to go for that, but it can definitely be a challenge to yourself!
6. The Comedian
A main character in ‘Watchmen’, The Comedian’s cigar-chomping, gun-toting vigilante persona is aptly accompanied by his signature ‘dad’ moustache. Much like the ‘dad bod’, it’s a thing now and the ladies find it extremely attractive. Want to go for something basic but classic? Go for this one right here.
Okay, before you start off with a barrage of abuses saying that we have no clue about the fact that Superman never actually sported a moustache anywhere, we want to put our foot down and say that we want him to sport one. Have you seen Henry Cavill in ‘Mission Impossible’? Now imagine that in Superman (minus the CGI moustache-removal scandal, of course). Just look at this picture and tell us, honest to yourself, that you don’t think Superman would actually look better with a moustache? Yes, we think so too.
