Poll: If Angry Aliens Attacked Earth, 21% of Americans Said They Would Call the Hulk

However, the poll results get particularly amusing when pop-culture is introduced into the questions.

About 79% of those surveyed think the government has kept information about UFOs a secret from the public, and 55% believe there are real-life Men in Black-style agents who threaten people who spot UFOs.

How would they handle alien contact?

22% would try to befriend the alien, 15% would run away, 13% would lock their doors, and only 2% would try to inflict bodily harm.

Okaaaay. But here's my favorite:

If angry aliens did attack Earth, 21% would call the Hulk in to deal with it, 12% would call Batman, and 8% would call Spider-Man.

Clearly a lot of the respondents had recently seen The Avengers, and honestly, I can't argue with that. Amusingly, a whopping 65 percent of respondents also claim that President Obama would be better equipped to deal with an alien invasion than Mitt Romney.
