Simone Biles is a real-life superhero but don’t get caught in her web!
The most dominant gymnast of all time really got into character on Thursday as she channeled the Marvel superhero, Black Widow. Biles is a superhero in her own right and the closest person to actually having superpowers so it only makes sense that Marvel and the video game company, Square Enix tapped her and other Olympic athletes to help promote the new Avengers game. It’s cool to see her all dressed up but she also answered a bunch of superpower questions that all her nerdy fans were dying to know.
To help publicize the launch of the new video game, Marvel’s Avengers, Olympians Nathan Adrian, Jagger Eaton, and Allyson Felix joined Simone and were made over with inspiration from their favorite Avenger thanks to beauty influencer Kandee Johnson. Simone proudly shared the stunning results with her millions of fans.
“If you could #embraceyourpowers and be inspired by one of the Avengers, who would you choose? Being a world class athlete and a Super Hero are a lot alike, especially when it comes to the ultimate human levels of strength and ability that make Black Widow who she is, which is why I’m joining @squareenix to celebrate the launch of @playavengers ,” she captioned her superhero pose.
Thankfully, the people at Marvel and Square Enix asked Biles the important questions that every fan wants to know.
“If you could have one superpower what would it be?” the interview asked.
“Teleporting,” she quickly replied.
That’s a great power… especially if that could eliminate those long plane rides when her gymnastic events are held overseas. Things only got more interesting when they asked her what her strongest power is and what her weakest power is in real-life.
“Strength,” she answered without hesitation but it took her a second to say her weakest power is her ability to think on her feet.
She went on to detail a power that her fans would not know about her.
“I’m pretty good at reading the room,” she explained. “As soon as I walk into the room I can kind of read everybody.”
BTW she has a major crush on Thor.
During her superhero-themed interview, she assigned a Marvel character to each person in her life. She said her dad was her Hulk, her mom was her Ironman, and her sister was her real-life Black Widow.
She mentioned how her dad is always there for her and her sister is quick to show up when Simone needs her, but she saved the most sacrificial and strongest Avenger to describe her mom (Ironman sacrifices himself in the last Avengers movie).
Biles also said that she wants to be remembered as a hero that helped foster kids and everyone around the world… now that’s a hero’s mentality!
