    most Helicarrier crashes happen outside of New York. Roxxon Oil is based in New Jersey. the Maggia also does a lot of business there. Connecticut might be a bit safer.

    Also, most of the super powered ladies are hot, so it would be cool to scope them out

    are you forgetting the origin of the Avengers? hint: it took place in Detroit.

    I'd have at least a marginal chance of manifesting mutant powers, but since I'd be a citizen of the Marvel Universe, I would have no control over which power I'd have, nor would I have the kind of genre-savvy that comes with reading the comics. Granted, Marvel Comics exists in the MU and publishes superhero comics, but it's been shown more than once that what's written in the comics are quite different than what goes on in the MU.

    I was born in North Dakota, raised in Texas, went to college in Kansas, and bounced around between North Dakota and Texas since then, so my personal exposure to superheroes/villains would be minimal. Of course, Forge lives in Dallas, and the X-Men and Spider-Man have shown up there, so there would still be exposure. And Texas does have its relatively small share of costumed folks that are hardly ever seen because of Marvel's heavy focus on New York. It's entirely possible there might be superheroes and villains in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex that haven't shown up in the comics. All I can recommend, though, is that some mode of transportation or travel power would be useful: webswinging like Spider-Man would be useless outside of Downtown Dallas and Fort Worth, so a car, flight, or teleportation would make the commute more bearable.

    Would I still be interested in superheroes in a world where they exist? I don't know. Maybe. I could see myself being fascinated with superpowers, and actually wanting to go to New York to meet the most famous ones. I'd just be missing some critical information about who these heroes are, thanks to secret identities.

    If I had some power or powers, I think I would survive. I would be quiet and stay out of trouble as much as possible, to be happy.

    Evidently public school teachers don't believe it, despite multiple alien invasions. Or Sam Alexander in Nova just has a crank for a teacher.

    Oh, yeah. I'd forgotten that last scene took place in an auto factory.

    Winged ants must fly really fast in the MU.

    Really, I don't see how ANY sane person would want to live in the New York of the Marvel universe. It's not even a nice place to visit, since it's practically a war zone every week.

    Don't get too attached to your cars, because sooner or later the Hulk, the Thing, or some super-villain is going to pick it up and toss it at somebody and it'll get smashed, trashed, and otherwise made a useless piece of junk.

    Bring it on. I'd be the crazy flatscan guy begging to live in the Jean Grey School.

    I live in Canada, so I'd only be in trouble every ten years or so, when Alpha Flight gets their own series...and even then, usually not for very long.

    With my luck I'd end up manifesting mutant powers and end up looking like Beak.

    Or I'd become a Hand ninja. Those Hand guys always die and come back.

    Hate to break it to you, most of them just die and dissolve. Only a few elite ones get resurrected by their rites.

    unless you're a lot younger than i think, you'd have nothing to worry about.
