Comment of the week
Philo Pharynx gave a very in-depth answer to the question 'which superhero would you elect as president?".
"Superman would certainly be electable - except for the part where he wasn't born in America. This takes out wide swaths of comic characters.
Despite the Britsh accent, Professor Xavier was born in New York City. He's tremendously brilliant. But is America ready for a bald president?
Third party candidates have such a hard time that we'll have to write off everybody from the Image party. Which sucks, because who wouldn't vote for the Savage Dragon/Monster Girl ticket.
Since Powers switched from the Image Party to Marvel, Christian Walker is in the right party, but he doesn't have the name recognition.
Hal Jordan would be brought down when the whole Parallax thing comes out.
It would be exceedingly unlikely for a jewish/gypsy woman who practices witchcraft, used to be a supervillain, and wasn't born in the US to get elected. But when you're the Scarlet Witch, the improbable happens on a regular basis."
