Happy Comic Book Day!
Become a Superhero with .IM!
Okay, so even though you shouldn't register the actual name of your favorite comic book superhero on .IM (or any other domain extension) due to copyright issues, there are ways to "become" a superhero with .IM. This is because .IM can stand for "I'm," allowing you to say who you are (or who you want to be) right in your URL. For example, SuperRobyn.im is available!
The .IM domain's similarity to the word "I'm" has made it a great option for personal websites. Whether you want to register your name, who you are, or who you want to be, you'll be much more likely to find your perfect domain name available on .IM than on other domain extensions.
Now, for some fun comic book trivia:
- The first modern comic book was printed in 1933.
- The head of Marvel, Martin Goodman, believed that Spider-Man would not do well because so many people do not like spiders.
- Superman was originally going to be bald.
- It was the idea of William Moulton Marston's wife, Elizabeth, to create a female superheroine and thus, Wonder Woman was born.
- Captain America was almost named Super American, but creator Joe Simon decided there were too many 'Supers' already.
- The most expensive comic book is DC's Action Comics #1 from June, 1983. It sold for more than $2 million.

You are Green Lantern
Hot-headed. You have strong will power and a good imagination.
