A year and a half ago I took a "what superhero are you" quiz on OKCupid. The quiz told me I was Batman. Tom-Batman relations were particularly poor that day, and I pounded my shoe on the podium (*) and ranted about it.
Y'all also took the quiz and discovered: it's broken! Everybody's Batman!
Well? So? Maybe everybody is
Batman! Aren't we? Aren't we?
But seriously, for some strange definition of seriously... Batman doesn't suit me. Neither does Superman or Spiderman or Hawkman or the Martian Manhunter or Too Much Coffee Man. So let's back up at look at the facts:
Highly social, yet a little dorky. Physically fit but within normal human parameters, apart from a few odd talents. Believes in mom, apple pie and the American Way but doesn't dress the part. Cheerful in spite of bad shit. Good at communicating with creatures quite unlike himself. At the beach, jumps straight into the ocean, while everybody else lies around on a blanket...
Oh shit. I'm Aquaman.The Ballad of Aquaman
, MP3 (4MB total). This is an unauthorized upload of a recording by The Social Bedders. I've googled and can find a handful of references to the song, but no official band web page or CDs recorded by this band. So it seems to be an orphaned recording.
Thanks to smittywing
for exposing me to the song. Clearly someone needs to work out the tablature.

although he did remove it and prepare to do so (see the last comment on that Google Answers question).
