Red-costumed Heroes

The above Honda City advert poses an interesting question: “Do you realize that costumed heroes are always in red?”
“Red” is auspicious (吉利) to the Chinese and more so during the Lunar New Year celebration, when the color takes on an even more meaningful significance – which explains why red is so visible.
And so, I decided to address this Honda question.

After all, I am into superheroes too. So here’s what I came up with insofar as red costumed comic book heroes (and villains) are concerned  all thirteen of them!


Iron Man

The Flash
Scarlet Witch



Red Skull
Aberdeen breathed new life into the Scottish Premiership title race on Wednesday with a deserved 2-1 win against league leaders Celtic.
After a dominant start from the latter, Aberdeen exploded into life when Jonny Hayes fired home an unstoppable drive from 25 yards in the thirty-first minute. And Simon Church marked his debut with a goal when he bundled home from close range to make it 2-0 six minutes later.
Leigh Griffiths pulled one back in injury time (90+3), but the Dons held on to cut the gap on Celtic to three points.
