3. E.T. – E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
While Paul had no immediate intentions of returning to his home planet, E.T. is another story. This stranded-on-Earth alien was desperate for a helping hand and little Elliott was right there to give it. But E.T. is the very definition of cute. He may not offer much of a helping hand himself, but he is the silent type that will stay home and wait for you to return. E.T. also has some cool party tricks, including a light-up finger and an extending neck.
At times, E.T. can be quite a handful. He complains a lot and is especially picky about his candy. Reese’s Pieces are delicious, but buying them might burn a hole in your pocket after a while. The constant whining about his home planet can also grow weary. The most difficult aspect of a friendship with E.T. is hiding him from the world. If you don’t, federal agents will be knocking down your door, much like Paul.
2. Chewbacca – Star Wars
If Chewbacca can get out of his life debt with Han Solo, you might find one of the most loyal friends in the universe. He looks and sounds like a giant space canine and might very well become your best friend. He is also a great shot with a Bowcaster and knows how to fly a ship.
While he loves to play board games, it might be difficult to get competitive. After all, it’s not wise to upset a Wookie. If you beat him, he might rip your arms out of their sockets and that makes for a tightly-wound friendship. While it seems obvious that conversation with Chewbacca is difficult, Han adopted the language perfectly fine and he is a scruffy-headed nerf-herder.
1. Superman – Superman
If you need an addition to your flag-football team, it couldn’t hurt to be close friends with Superman. But it is Kal-El’s protective instincts will make for a truly great friend. Harm will never befall you and you’ve even got an inside source at the Daily Planet. In addition, he may even hook you up with one of Lois Lane’s friends.
However, Superman has some serious deep-seeded pain due to the loss of his family and entire race during the destruction of Krypton. I wouldn’t want to be in the room when he has a mental breakdown – and it is inevitable at some point. His alter-ego is a bit of a nuisance as well. Clark Kent is a part of Superman’s personality that will never go away. Unfortunately, he stumbles around like a buffoon and can’t talk to women, so “Clark” out might be a problem.
