A Super Hero’s Boston Terrier

In the spring of 2015, a Boston Terrier boarded a city bus and went on a 20-mile ride in Houston with some other passengers. He didn’t belong to any of them.

Twenty miles later, he got off the bus with other passengers, one of whom escorted him to the transit authority police station. “He was a very friendly little guy. He was very sociable. But he was a gentleman,” one Metro Police Officer told a news station reporter. From there, the dog was taken to a Veterinary Hospital which agreed to care for the dog (by then nicknamed “Metro”) until an owner or foster family could be found. When no one called to claim “Metro,” a temporary home was found. Long story short, the person serving as his foster parent decided to adopt him.

It should come as no surprise, then, that in the world of Super Heroes, a Boston Terrier named “Ace” belonged to one of them. Was it Superman, the Green Arrow, the Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, or Batman?

When Dogster.com asked which Super Hero owned, “Ace,” the Boston Terrier, 7% of those polled answered “Superman,” 18% said “Green Arrow,” 31% thought it was the Green Lantern, 19% voted for Wonder Woman, and 26% were sure it was Batman. The correct answer is Batman.
