Superheroes are some of the loneliest people despite being surrounded by thousands who love and worship them. Almost all of them have sacrificed a normal life, the chance of being in love or having a family in order to protect mankind. So, it’s no surprise that they like coming back home to a furry friend. The heroes and their little companions mean the world to each other. Some of them are cat-lovers while some like the warmth of dogs. They are the only source of paws-ivity in their lives. Find out the 5 superheroes who love dogs and 5 who love cats.

Kamala Khan is a teenager from New Jersey who goes by the name Ms. Marvel to follow her idol, Captain Marvel’s footsteps. She became an Inhuman after being exposed to Terrigen Mist.

It is understandable why Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul’s poor son, Damien would be the closest to the butler, Alfred. His kind and wise nature make him no less than a grandfather/father-like figure to Damien. So, the little boy named his cat, the next closest thing to him, after Alfred.
We are not surprised to learn that Oliver Queen is an animal lover. He used to be a callous billionaire brat who turned into a completely new person after a traumatic experience.
