Superheroes such as Spiderman, The Hulk and X-Men have had great impact on Sharon den Adel. The Within Temptation singer is “formed” by the stories of Marvel Comics.
“In Suriname I have Superman seen in a buitenbioscoop, then I hooked back on Marvel Comics,” explains Den Adel, who as a child in Suriname lived, in interview with The Volkskrant.
“The love for Marvel comics is always continue to exist.”
According to the singer turning the stories “to a few very simple principles”. “But they have me in all their simplicity, being formed. For example, the idea that someone else can. When you are on your own way heroic. That you to help other people when they need it, in real emergencies but also in less visible, such as, for example, bullying.”
Den Adels’s love for Marvel goes so far that they were one of her children named it after a character. “My youngest son is called Logan, the mensennaam of the Marvel mutant Wolverine.”
