Cool Videos: This 4 year old girl knows more about Marvel superheroes than you

May. 23, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I pride myself in instilling my geeky knowledge in my two sons. I enjoy showing them STAR WARS, superheroes, video games, and movies. It is fun sharing something with my children that my father shared with me at that age. There is something special in keeping the nerd alive for generations to come. What does tend to fall by the wayside is that many consider comics and superheroes to be the realm of boys only. There are countless girls, many of whom visit or work on this website, who pride themselves in being movie fans, geeks, nerds, and above all, girls.

One example of gender not being biased when it comes to comics is this video featuring a father and daughter sharing their knowledge of the Marvel universe as Mom records on her phone. You can hear the mother shocked at how much her daughter knows and I was impressed myself. I think my six year old would know a lot of the characters this kid does, but they wouldn't be able to name the stones in the Infinity Gauntlet, let alone their color. And there is Dad mentioning Thanos and the Dark Surfer as readily as most parents would be discussing Thomas the Tank Engine or My Little Pony.

Let this video show that the Geeks and Nerds are multiplying because when it comes to survival of the fittest, we know how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Take that exercise and nutrition!

I know I am going to come across as an asshat

but if you are going to spend time making a little girl memorize stuff it might be good to, you know, teach her something that will actually be useful when she gets older (like math, sceince, grammar or a foreign language). I could have answered all those questions myself but, as an adult, most people would probably think it was a bit sad that I know all that stuff and not impressive. It's funny that it's a girl and not a boy though.

Hey... that's me!

I've been an avid JoBlo fan since 2002. It's funny to see myself and my kid on here. Pretty surreal. To answer questions:
- She likes DC too... not as much. I'm more of a Marvel fan hence the Marvel questions. She'd do pretty well on a DC quiz just not quite as impressive.
- Cue cards? Seriously? You think my wife had cue cards in our CRV on a Friday night on the way to a department store? We played a few questions, my wife was impressed so she decided to film it. The only help she

The only help she got was from me (when I lead her on a couple which you can hear.) I posted it on Reddit to get some hits for my blog... I never expected it to take off like this. To think that I staged cue cards makes me smile though... so thanks.

Not Bad

Pretty good for a kid who probably hasn't actually read any comics (or so i assume). As to how well she does compared to others i would put money on her to beat other 6 year olds sure, but to claim she knows more then an even past avid reader of the Marvel U is silly. Have her name off some of the more obscure X Men or Avengers like say Marrow or Tigra respectively then i would have been blown away.

Really dude? It was a lighthearted joke. And I know plenty of avid readers who have no idea what the names of the individual infinity stones are. This girl is 4. The fact that she knows any of this is amazing. Stop being a dick.

That wasn't crying, that was me explaining to you why you're a dick. Hopefully you took something away from that.

wasnt impressed untill about half way through

Then the little girl dropped Thanos, and named some of the gems on the infinity gauntlet, knew the scarlett witches real name, recalls a story about the falcon and dark surfer, makes me have hope for the next generation

She's Reading Cue Cards (Watch Her Eyes)

Sorry to burst the bubble of this little four year old, but she glances to her mother before just about every response. She knows some of the answers and needed prompts from her dad for a few of those, but the harder ones are written on cards. Its obvious... Sorry to rain on the parade

maybe, but anytime i have my nephew on a video he acts the same way, looking around at everyone and more specificly at the camera no matter what we are trying to get him to do, becuz he knows hes being taped, plus she did recall the falcon/dark surfer story which she def wasnt reading

If she is really 4, not possible. Vast majority of children do not start reading until 6-7. She would have to have been taught to read at an early age to be able to read cards in that rapid succession, what parents teach kids to read that young? Who has time? Whatever dude
