## Would You Rather Win The Lottery or Become A Superhero?

Would you rather win the lottery or become a superhero?  Both options sound good, I know, but we need to remember that being a superhero does not guarantee that you will live a life of luxury as it all depends on what superpowers you have.

If we look at Batman, Iron Man or Black Panther, we see that they are quite independently wealthy already. But on the other hand we just have to look at The X-Men to see that they are funded by benefactors such as Professor Xavier.  So it seems as though one could be a superhero and still pull a salary. Not quite what you had in mind now was it. In fact, most superheroes seem to be average citizens who find the job thrust upon them, risking life and limb for their fellow man. I don’t see me sitting on the beach with a cocktail in my hand here…

So, let’s take another look at winning the lottery:

The odds of winning the UK Lotto is 1 in 13,983, 815, which may sound pretty harsh, but since the National Lottery has been running, more than 3,000 people have won the lottery and become instant millionaires. New house, new supercar, sipping cocktails on exotic beach – tick!

The odds of winning the lottery for the American Powerball is 1 in 175 million – and people do win!

It comes down to the fact that anyone who buys a lottery ticket can win the jackpot.

When looking at the odds of being eaten by a shark for instance, you are 20 times more likely to win the lottery!  Apparently, the odds of that happening are 1 in 264 million – and if you’re worried by those stats - stay out of the water!

What if a Superhero won the lottery?

Now that we’ve established the fact that not all superhero’s are wealthy or could even get rich enough easy enough, let’s see what would happen if a superhero won the lottery.

First of all we need to remember that all superhero’s have very distinct characteristics.  So in what way do these three comic-book heroes differ? The best way to tell is to answer the question – What would each of them do if they hit a lottery jackpot?

There’s a couple of things you could do with your money if you won the lotto – spend, save or donate (or, best of all, a combination of the three). All types of people win lottery jackpots by buying lottery tickets online at PlayUSALotteries.com or at local lottery kiosks, and they land up doing different things with their winnings.

So what would our superheroes do?

Superman

What a good guy. Let’s face it, Clark Kent would never squander his millions and end up on the list of “lottery winners that lost it all.”  Instead this down to earth farm boy would donate to charities, invest his money wisely and make sure that his mom lives the lotto lifestyle.

Iron Man

Iron Man’s already a playboy billionaire, so he’s used to having loads of money to throw around. With more than enough to throw around, this guy would simply spend his lottery win on his two favourite pastimes – building weaponry and wooing women.

Captain America

Steve Rogers found himself in the 21st Century after being frozen for decades. He’s an ordinary, patriotic guy (with extraordinary strength) who wants to help, serve and protect, so this superhero would probably donate most, if not all, of his millions to charities and community organizations.

My superheroes are those who invent all kinds of lottery games as it allows anyone who participates a dream and a chance to become filthy rich. If I won a huge jackpot, maybe I will spend money setting up a fund called Nobel Lottery Prize awarding those ingenious lottery designers as they really are my superheroes.

heroes are created to give the general populace a sense of escape....maybe some affiliation..or perhaps reassurance of their security...but its purely phantasmagoria...

I would rent out an exclusive resort somewhere and then have surprise limos pick up my family and best friends and whisk them to a private business jet which would then take them there. Then when they arrive all confused as to what is going on, I'd enter and let them know that they all just became millionaires. Then Aerosmith would be revealed from behind a curtain on a stage and we'd party all night.

Being a Lotto winner can be a hero by itself if shared with less fortunate .

Iron Man would be my choice,however I would change perception of who he is. Instead of building weapons I would inspire others to dream big,by investing in them whether it's helping with education, invest in startups etc.Oh yeah, having a model girlfriend is cool too.
