Ever wonder which superheroes were most popular where?  Seeking like-minded fans of your favorite heroes?  Where should you look?  Well now there is a resource that can tell you that!

Spider-Man might be a New York City icon, but his biggest fan base is in the biggest state, Texas!  Meanwhile, Iron Man, a character notorious for womanizing and boozing has the most fans in the conservative state of Utah!

And while the Marvel heroes are about to engage in a Civil War onscreen, there must be something in the water when it comes to fandom.  The Fantastic Four’s top fan bases are almost entirely on the East Coast, while the top five Guardians of the Galaxy fan bases are on the West Coast.

These results are based on Google searches by state.  As you can see by this infographic, Spidey’s NY home base ranks pretty low on the list, at #8.  By state, Spider-Man seems to have the most fans in:

  1. Texas
  2. California
  3. Florida
  4. New Jersey
  5. Nevada
  6. Arizona
  7. Utah
  8. New York
  9. Indiana
  10. Georgia

It’s not all Marvel.  It may just be that size matters, but Batman and Superman are both most searched for in Texas.  You’d think maybe Superman would be most sought in Kansas, home of the fictional Smallville, or Indiana, home of a real life town called Metropolis, which hosts an annual Superman Festival.  But it seems the heartland isn’t really all that keen on the Man of Steel.

Superman is most popular in:

  1. Texas
  2. California
  3. Illinois
  4. Michigan
  5. New York
  6. New Jersey
  7. New Mexico
  8. Utah
  9. Nevada
  10. Arkansas
