Jason Momoa on Being Polynesian and Being Cast as Aquaman

“I’ve rode some dolphins before, so I can pull on that. I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives… My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian.”

Ah, Dungeons and Dragons. The Reward is very inspired by the long nights of playing this amazing game. Let us introduce the team:

Thuctar the half orc Barbarian who runs up front with his singing blade, Erran the elven druid who will summon the most foul beasts, Serran the human cleric also known as the people’s shield, Belkar the halfling ranger who should have been a rogue, last but not least Ronnom the gnome bard who cannot say no to a fair lady and a chance in the spotlight.

Our feared dungeon master had in this scenario blocked our path with a Kuo Toa village down in the deepest sections of the mithral mines. But nothing can stop these brave souls when it comes to stopping Navul’s evil schemes.

Fatu Kekula’s nightmare began when her father fell ill with #Ebola and infected three other members of her family. Turned away from numerous hospitals in Liberia, the 22-year-old nursing student had no choice but to care for them at home.

With none of the protective gear aid workers usually wear to treat ebola patients, Fatu was forced to invent her own. She single-handedly nursed three of her relatives back to health without getting infected - extremely noteworthy considering that more than 300 health care workers have fallen ill.

"I’m sure she’ll be a great giant of Liberia," says Fatu’s father, now healthy and working to find a scholarship for her to finish her final year of nursing school.

I really liked your MBTI in villains post and was wondering if you could do one about heroes as well. Thanks!

I’ve gotten loads of requests along these lines but haven’t had the time nor mental energy to sit down and do it until now, so… sorry for the wait. Dunno why you need me to point these out… you can probably identify at least one comic book hero to go with every single type. ;)

Thinker Heroes:

NTJ: Will conceptualize a globally-altering concept through their Ni, then realize it in reality to protect the welfare of the innocent for some greater problem-solving cause (Te). Will selflessly put their life on the line to save others in support of a high moral standard that they refuse to violate (Fi) while being unafraid to be physically involved to ensure the safety of the innocent (Se).

STJ: Likely to draw inspiration from heroes of the past, and create a larger worldview that reflects the intelligence and success of their predecessors, that also attends to immediate needs in the present (Si). They decide who they want to be and what they want to accomplish and set out to successfully do just that (Te) while supporting a higher moral standard of unflinching values they refuse to surrender even under pain of death (Fi). They have a larger worldview and are willing to embrace new ideas and possibilities in their goal of helping others (Ne).

STP: Inclined to rush in and save the day without much need for support, flying by the seat of their pants and able to head off situations as they arise by being in tune with their environment and seeing chances to act to save the day (Se). Analytical problem-solvers, able to think their way out of any situation even when it seems dire (Ti), with a greater desire to protect humanity against nefarious evil (Fe). Also capable of long-term planning if given enough time to reflect (Ni), which builds into their larger vision for their life as a super hero.

NTP: Uses their ability to see possibilities (Ne) and understand how concepts work (Ti) to make up for their physical shortcomings by designing awesome gear to assist them in saving the world from ruthless robots, lizard people, or schoolyard jerks, for the greater good (Fe). Learns from the mistakes of others and brings a sense of patriotism into their work, which also gives them a strong central core of purpose (Si).

Feeler Heroes:

SFJ: Takes their responsibility for the welfare of humanity to a whole new level through building on previous experience, patriotism, and tradition in their approach to solving problems in the present day (Fe and Si). Open to new ideas and concepts only in regards to how they relate to practical, useful and helpful humanitarian purposes (Ne). Unafraid to analyze and criticize outdated systems in the hope of improving them for the greater good of all (Ti).

NFJ: Envisions a greater reality for the benefit of humanity (Ni and Fe), and works toward it with steadfast devotion and patience in seeing their long term idealistic vision realized; unafraid to take risks by taking chances as they arise (Se) and abandon outdated systems that are neither helpful nor successful in realizing their goals (Ti). Likely to be intelligent strategists against their adversaries, and well-liked.

SFP: Strong, assertive, unflinching types who take it upon themselves to save the world one risk-taking action at a time (Se and Fi). Unafraid to get their hands dirty, risk their life to safe someone, or inspire others to the cause through emergent leadership and planning skills (Te). Likely to visualize what they want and pursue it with everything they have.

NFP: Creative, imaginative and idealistic. Though respectful of tradition to some extent and willing to learn from the mistakes and successes of their predecessors (Si), this hero/heroine is more devoted to a free-thinking and free-spirited approach to problem solving, which stems from their own intense moral character (Fi). They are eager to organize others toward a common greater goal and unafraid to change their vision if a better plan arises (Ne).
