For anyone who's ever seen a superhero film, it's pretty clear that it isn't a profession which allows for much down-time. Their daily lifestyle of saving lives and enforcing justice doesn't seem to allow for much exercise.

This is something that proves especially infuriating for us normals as they all appear to be blessed with infinite athleticism.

Thankfully, Maris Wicks has lifted the curtain on their true fitness regimes and, to be honest, it's a tad surprising. Would anyone have pegged Captain America as a Frisbee fan? Or Spidey as a tennis player? In fact, the only one which seems to make sense is Batman's love of hockey, inarguably the most violent team-sport there is.
