Are you a comics fan? Whether you want to take a day to celebrate your favorite superheroes or attempt the 24-hour international comic book challenge, these strains will lend a helping hand in the festivities. Named after some of the world’s most popular comics, here are 10 strains for comic book day.
1. Bruce Banner
Named after the Incredible Hulk’s alter ego, Bruce Banner is one powerful strain. In fact, it’s thought to be one of the most potent cannabis strains in the world. In some lab tests, this monster has reached up to 30%
2. Wonder Woman
Lady superheroes need love, too. Wonder Woman is a truly delightful hybrid. Sativa-dominant, this strain provides a powerful cerebral high and is strong enough to lift the lowest spirits.
A cross between White Widow and Ice, the THC levels of this strain can reach up to 20%. Though, it’s possible to find Wonder Woman buds with as low as 15% of the psychoactive.
This makes Wonder Woman a great strain for new cannabis consumers.
3. Green Goblin
There are two versions of Green Goblin out there. “Green Goblin” is either the more appropriate name for Green Crack, or it is a phenotype of the Green Crack strain.
Either way, this strain won’t pop up just to wreak havoc on your day. Rather, Green Gobin is a potent and energizing sativa.

If you hope to spend the day rereading some of your favorite comics, Captain America OG is the strain for the job. You’ll feel content enough to sit quietly and read, but you’ll also be graced with mental clarity and focus.
The THC content in this strain can reach up to 25%, so it’s recommended for more experienced consumers.
5. Superman OG
This strain is happy and euphoric at first, but you’ll quickly find your lids getting heavy and be wishing for a nap. Perhaps this strain is best left for the end of the day when you’re ready to head to bed.
Novice cannabis consumers will like Superman OG. It produces plenty of indica effects with relatively moderate amounts of THC (18% max). If you’ve been busy creating, this strain will help you catch up on some much-needed rest.
This hardcore indica hybrid will definitely zap your energy and leave you stuck on the couch. The THC content of this strain regularly reaches 25%, if not more.

7. Silver Surfer

Stimulating and uplifting, Astroboy has all the benefits of a sativa without a whole lot of raciness.
A combo of Apollo 13 and (Cinderella 99 X Ortega), the THC content of this strain runs up to 19%. There’s even a full 1% CBD in there as well. Overall, a good choice for anytime you need some extra energy.

Some prospective indica heritage in the mix creates a mild body high, but you’re likely to be so lost in space that these physical effects go unnoticed.
