Wonder Woman Named UK’s Favourite Superhero
Data experts and movie fans at Carphone Warehouse have analysed Google search data to find the most searched for superheroes in the UK, to put an end to the age-old question; who is the ultimate superhero?
The data has revealed that the top 10 most searched for superheroes in the UK (July 2016 – June 2017) are:
1. Wonder Woman (3.8 million searches) – DC Comics
2. Spider-man (2.8 million searches) – Marvel
3. Deadpool (2.4 million searches) – Marvel
4. Batman (2.3 million searches) – DC Comics
5. The Flash (2.1 million searches) – DC Comics
6. Captain America (1.2 million searches) – Marvel
7. Iron Man (1.1 million searches) – Marvel
8. Thor (990,000 searches) – Marvel
9. Superman (960,000 searches) – DC Comics
10. Wolverine (900,000 searches) – Marvel
Carphone Warehouse, one of the UK’s leading mobile phone retailers, carried out the research to celebrate the launch of its Action Hero competition, which asks the nation to capture an action-packed moment this summer – for the chance of winning a £300 prize bundle.
The data also revealed that during that time period there was only one clear reigning champion in the Marvel and DC Comic rivalry, with Marvel receiving just over 9.3 million searches compared to DC Comics with 9.1 million.
A spokesperson from Carphone Warehouse said: “It’s fantastic to see Wonder Woman dominate the top 10, the release of the latest Wonder Woman film in the franchise has clearly sparked public interest in the hero.
“We’re looking forward to seeing every action-packed moment that people can capture and wish everyone the best of luck!”
‘Action Hero’ is this month’s theme for the company’s ‘Everyone’s a Photographer’ competition which was launched in partnership with Samsung after new research from Carphone Warehouse revealed that advances in technology mean we now can’t tell the difference between amateur and professional photographs.
The mobile phone retailer’s research asked individuals to rate a mixture of professional and amateur photographs on a scale of one to ten based on the professionalism and quality of the image.
Of the ten highest rated photographs, only two images were taken by professional photographers, with the remaining eight taken by amateurs.
