Here’s the character from the DC Universe that embodies your zodiac sign

Comic artist and patron saint of Cleveland Harvey Pekar asserted, “Comics are made up of words and pictures. You can do anything with words and pictures.”

The potential of this sacred combination and the history of DC Comics began almost a century ago.

In 1934, Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, an enterprising Capricorn (not all of them are) and pulp writer, founded National Allied Publications, the company that would later become DC Comics and later spawn superhero greats like Batman and Superman.

Over the years, the heroes and villains that populate the ever-expanding DC Universe have been brought to life on page and screen.

DC’s latest offering is also the first of its kind. Premiering August 18, Blue Beetle is about a Texas teenager-turned-crime-fighter and the first DC film to feature a Latino superhero.

In honor of this latest release and the sheer potential of words and images, we bring you our list of characters from the DC Universe by zodiac sign. Read on to find out more.

Ares is the clear choice for Aries because, like his Aries brothers, he is fueled by conflict, looks great in a breastplate, and can’t help but venture boldly into mortal affairs.

Aries sits opposite Libra on the zodiac wheel and Ares’ nemesis is tied up, high-booted Libra, ladies and gentlemen, Wonder Woman.

As becomes clear here inflammatory meditation on the astrology of Catwomanour feline femme fatale has been played by countless zodiac signs and has proven their qualities.

Still, it seems like she perfectly harmonizes or purrs with Taurus’ decadent earth. An unsung trait of the Bull is a deep, deep resistance to control and Catwoman, while being aesthetically refined and emotionally feral throughout.

Taurus like the good life and prefer a path with minimal effort, making high-end thievery a sensible career choice. The icing on the cake, or horn on the Bull, is that OG catwoman Michelle Pfeiffer is a Venus Taurus Sun.

The Lightning

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, named after the fleet-footed god of communications.

Each variant of lightning thinks, moves and reacts at the speed of light. Some later incarnations of The Flash have such high spirits and move so fast that they can penetrate walls and exchange speed.

Lightning can also absorb kinetic energy, and as anyone who has ever spent time in a car while a Gemini talks quickly and rarely has their hands on the wheel can attest, this sign is made up of kinetic energy.

Batman’s parents were murdered on June 26th. Batman’s birthday dates have changed throughout the year, but the early event of his parents’ deaths has remained strikingly consistent.

Bruce Wayne might have been born an Aries or a Taurus, but Batman was born in the blood of that pale moonlight on June 26th in the crab claw of Cancer season. The people of the crab are overly sensitive, incurably nostalgic, and isolated.

Check out In true Watermark fashion, Batman keeps a delicate totem of what he’s lost; In most iterations of the character, a clock serves as the secret entrance to the Batcave and is set at 10:47 p.m. to honor the precise moment Thomas and Martha Wayne died.

The joker

Leo people place great value on theater, love living in or stimulating a carnival atmosphere, and appreciate the healing properties of comedy, all hallmarks of one of the GOAT villains of our time, the Joker.

Leo rules the 5th house of joy and play, colloquially called the “Fun House”, it is the natural domain of laughter, clowns, theater and decadence. With all his painted face, mayhem, and cardio glory, the Joker embodies the dark side of this sign and the perversion of the game.

Add in the mix of lions as natural leaders, and the wild card is never at a loss for supplicants or rousing catchphrases.

The lion represents the inner child and the joker the malnourished, bullied little one who burns, rampages and generally destroys in response to being harmed himself.

Virgo is a moody earth sign who thrives behind the scenes, under the mask and when underestimated by those under them.

That’s where Batgirl comes in, a genius hacker and information broker with a photographic memory.

Virgos excel at organization and leadership, and Batgirl is responsible for assembling the all-female, all-female Birds of Prey hero team.

Wonder Woman Day Celebrated every year on October 21 at the end of the Libra season and marking the superheroine’s debut in 1941.

Libra is the sign of partnership and contracts, including marriage.

In this context, Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston was assisted in the conception of the character by his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist.

Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and it was Marston’s wish that Wonder Woman would be the first heroine to win not through violence but through love (and the lasso of truth).

Green Lantern

The Green Lantern was most recently brought to life by Scorpio DILF Ryan Reynolds, and the Lantern’s extreme nature fits easily with the solid water and pathetic intensity of the eighth sign of the zodiac.

This quote is enough as proof: “The further I get from the cockpit, the more I realize that there are always only two options: burst into flames – or do something crazy.”

Annihilation, self-immolation, or freaking out, the holy trinity of Scorpio conflict responses.

Harley Quinn

Sagittarians are known for their poor impulse control, zest for life, rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic, and resistance to authority figures. All qualities are evident and present in Harley Quinn, everyone’s favorite pair of pigtails, played by such loners or soon to be played by such misfits as Margot Robbie and Lady Gaga.

It posits that Quinn’s eternal lover, the Joker, would be another fire sign, as the two obviously get along like a house on fire and the gently falling Ashes of Gotham is their favorite aphrodisiac.

Blue Beetle

Aquarius represents the archetype of the outsider and is ruled by two planetary influences; Saturn and Uranus. Arthur Curry aka Aquaman aka Jason Momoa with gold contact lenses grew up in an isolated environment, born into two worlds, half-human and half-Atlantean, but didn’t fully belong to either one.

After Arthur came into his power, he assembled the “Others,” a typical superhero dream team of outcasts and misfits.

Symbolized by the mythical water bearer, Aquarius is associated with rebellion and progress, and Arthur fulfills his sign by using his hybrid powers to influence and protect sea life and defeat evil. can dig.

According to DC Myth Superman celebrates his birthday in the leap year, Our man is a fish on this planet every four years.
