What is your favorite color and why? And it could be more than one color, by the way. For me, growing up, the first favorite color that I had was blue. And the reason blue was my favorite color first was because of my favorite comic book character growing up, Superman. Now, at that time, I had never heard of any comic books, nor have I ever seen any. The first time I had ever heard of Superman was through a movie. So that's why blue was my favorite color. Then as I got older, red became my favorite color. Oddly enough, I don't know why, but it became my favorite color because red happened to be a prettier color than blue. Suddenly, I like all three colors, blue, red, and yellow, and they all happen to be primary colors. But now I like all three of those colors because of Superman.
