This DNA test will tell you if you’re a superhero


If you're like me, you've taken countless quizzes trying to find out what superhero you'd be. Kind of like this one right here actually:

Would I be super strong? Super fast? Super smart? Well, now there's a DNA test for that.

DNA testing company Orig3n has come up with the "Superhero DNA Test" -- a 6-gene profile targeting genetic predisposition for strength, intelligence, and speed:


  • Bone Strength (SOST)
  • Muscle Mass (VDR


  • Language Ability (FOXP2)
  • Learning Ability (Chromosome 6)


  • Cardiac Output (ACE)
  • Muscle Force (ACTN3)

Gene testing has been gaining popularity, but unlike other tests, Orig3n makes tests with a more narrow focus to tell you about specific areas of interest like behavior, alcohol tolerance, and beauty.

The Superhero DNA test won’t exactly tell you which superhero you are, but I feel pretty confident in reading my results as “you are Wolverine.”
