As I did before, I’ll name some characters who’d take anabolic steroids. We’ll be creative, would The Lizard really need them or take them? Obviously not. Hulk? Again, I don’t really think he needs them, so highly unlikely.
Eddie Brock, AKA Venom
This one was easy. The comics and even the cartoons actually describe his passion for weight lifting. In the comics, I believe steroid use has been mentioned numerous times. However, steroids only became an addiction once he became venom. His addiction only grew and his use of steroids increased greatly.
What steroids would Eddie Brock use? I guess the question would be what steroids wouldn’t he use? This guy is absolutely massive. Human growth hormone, Tren, Testosterone, Deca, Anadrol, would all be staples in his anabolic steroid cycles, as would IGF-1.
I really believe this guy would be on the “big stuff.” No wonder Spiderman has such a problem with him. Not only is he facing someone who has all his powers, can block his Spider-sense, has better webbing, but the man is also stronger and faster than he is… He’s also roided to the brim!
Tony Stark, Also Known As Iron Man
Now, I know what you are thinking, why in the hell would Iron man need steroids? After all, it’s that damn suit that does everything for him!
Think about it: it’s down to vanity and looks. As a man, Tony Stark is as vain as they come. He knows the importance of looking good; of being the best looking in the spotlight. He knows how essential it is to be strong, sexy, commanding, and this is something he goes for quite often. What steroids would it take to get a build similar to his?
I believe he’d stay away from the mega-mass builders, as he’d want a more “model-type” look. Testosterone Enthanate, Anavar, Primobolan, CJC without DAC, GHRP-2, and Clen would all be staples and I believe to originally getting his mass he would have probably used Deca 2 or 3 times as well. Hopefully with Test as well or Pepper wouldn’t have been too pleased, nothing a girl hates more than a guy who can’t get it up.
Tony Stark Aka Iron man is quite different in the sense that he takes anabolic steroids for looks, rather than performance, as many of the other superheroes mentioned in this article, or even in my Batman Characters On Steroids article I did earlier. That being said, he is very dedicated to the cause.
Yes, I know this might be more “Hmm, really? You really think this guy would juice?” Yes, I do and hear me out.
First off, he’s blind and at a disadvantage from the get-go. Yeah, his super hearing and his amazing gymnastic abilities are all a plus, but despite all of these, he would take advantage where he could get one.
Let’s do a test: Are you a martial artist or boxer of any level? I’ve competed in national and world competitions, and I can tell you the following test is not easy. Put on a simple pair of boxing gloves, have your friend/partner hold the pads out in front of you, now close your eyes. In fact, go one step further; blindfold them.
Now, have him or her walk around and smack the pads together. Now try to hit the pads. It’s not easy, is it? Now imagine trying to fight multiple opponents and hitting at speed and you see why I believe in the things I do. Daredevil is very clever and would use only steroids that would give him the “advantage” he needs. Unlike Tony Stark, vanity does not run through his mind.
Anavar, Clen, GHRP-2, GHRP-6, Human Growth Hormone, CJC WITHOUT DAC, testosterone, turanabol. would all be the key hormones used by Daredevil to give him what he needs to keep going. He requires speed, strength, endurance, and of course power.
He cannot have anything that would compromise this such as Dianabol, Anadrol, or tren. Make sure to subscribe to our blog and like us on Facebook so you don’t miss Part 2 of Which Marvel Characters Would Take Steroids!
