    Yay, I’m the first voter! 😀 I don’t think Superman qualifies as US prez as he wasn’t born in America, or even earth!! ha..ha.. I voted for Capt. America (well, naturally, right) I just think he’s served in the military and he also has a good heart. I also think Bruce Wayne is quite powerful enough to lead a country, he won’t even need to do any fundraising as he could very well fund his own campaign 😀

      Welcome to this year’s presidential campaign! Cap is a great choice! But how do you rebuttal accusations that he abandoned the U.S. In time of war? He could’ve abandoned ship and survived that plane crash. But he instead chose to evade paying taxes for 7 decades.And Bruce, sure he has money…so did Ross Perot…but that doesn’t mean he should be prez. Too secretive. Do you think the American public can trust him? He was Vice President last year…maybe he can be prez still. Hmm.

        Whoa, I’m not ready for a rebuttal. Um.. um.. can I still switch my answer? I didn’t see Professor X, I think that was my answer last year. I’d swap Cap w/ Prof. X but I stand by Bruce Wayne. He already had experience as VP, and the secret thing, well EVERY real prez has secrets. At least we know he’s out there saving the world and not cheating on his wife/girlfriend like a lot of real presidents do! 🙂

      X seems wise, but is that because he wants you to think he is? A little scary following a leader and not knowing if it is by choice or not.Wonder Woman is a nice choice…she def has what it takes, perhaps her lasso will make Congress finally be truthful!

    I can only vote for me as I only see myself fit for office. My humble beginnings have allowed to see the world from the perspective of the little man and my days of saving the world have given me a macro perspective. I am the ideal candidate, proven on the battlefield and able to empathize with the plight of the people

    Also, I hate that wisecracking guy, Iron Man. What a douche.

    Okay I voted for Professor X (he’s so wise!/PICAAAARRRD!) and Captain America (like I said on FB, that seems like the obvious choice). Also, like Ruth said, he served in the military and has a good heart. I WAS going to vote for Batman, but after playing Batman Arkham City, I remembered what a jerk that guy is!

    Well Captain America is the obvious presidential choice. He is all American! He wants the best for our country! I think the accusations of tax evasion are slanderous and false. He was busy saving the country and was incapacitated for it. It’s not his fault, and he could have just let it happen and then happily paid taxes to fix a broken country! So there. Also, Iron Man because he seems to generally also want good and to put a stop to war. And if I support him, maybe he will let me have an Iron Man suit.

      Cap is not necessarily the obvious choice! (sorry, Castor)

      Smandero!! Thanks for voting!

      Just because his name has “America” in it doesn’t mean he should win. Trust me. You wouldn’t want the Iron Patriot (Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in an Iron Man suit) to be president. How do you know he wants what’s best for the country? All he wants to do is to get his date with Agent Carter from 70 years ago. That’s all he had to talk and mope about! You saw the movie.

      And I agree, Iron Man DOES want what is good…only he want’s what is good for HIM more than what is good for the country! And so do you…you’re already after getting paid for your vote by claiming your price of an Iron Man Suit. No different than him! 😀 ha!

      At this point, Nick Fury is looking pretty good. at least he will look you Eye to Eye! haha.

        Well sure he has “America” in his name. But he wanted to serve his country BEFORE he was the Cap! He was just a little weiner kid with a whole lot of heart, and he still has that. As for wanting his date, if you woke up to realize you had been snoozing for 70 years, what would you do? His reaction shows he is still a man! I wouldnt wake up and say “oh well, let’s save America again!” Even our president should be allowed time to grieve that he missed his date 🙂

        As for Iron Man, I’m less sure about him and so would make him VP, under Cap. And I’ll support him without the suit, it would just be a nice bonus!

    Professor X and Cyclops. Professor X says he never uses his psychic powers on someone without their permission. So I believe that he’d never deceive people into believing things. He’s also done so much work to create peace between humans and mutants, that it would naturally extend to the rest of the world.

    Cyclops because he knows how to lead people, has worked most of his life under Prof. X already, and it’s nice to have a vice president that can control his shooting (I’m looking at you Chaney!).

    Professor X – He can read the mind of the enemies and he’ll always go for the peaceful resolution. Imagine being able to know what your enemies are thinking?

    Batman – I’m a huge fan of Batman in general so of course I was going to pick him. He already has a political history with being the president of Wayne Industries. We could be a great choice as well.

      Batman is a president of a company, but he uses so much of his company’s expenses for his only personal endeavors. Can anyone say embezzlement, fraud, and impeachment???

    I would like to say that Bruce and I thank you all for electing us as your President and VP last year. We hope that we were able to inspire and bring out the best in you all while still protecting you from clear and present dangers as well as the shadows you never heard coming.

    Dr. Banner, though he did manage to avoid any incidents this year, did a solid job leading our military as the secretary of defense but has decided that it was too taxing on him to keep from getting angry at times and thus has decided not to run for office again.

    VP Bruce Wayne worked very closely with Secretary of State Rogers to keep our borders secured and I feel they did a very good job. Despite the clashes that Mr. Speaker of the House Tony Stark and I had during the year, in the end we always manage to work through our differences and come to an agreement that was best for the country.

    During my time in office I’ve learned a lot about how strong the American spirit really is and how great this country can become. Despite what Bruce, Mr. Stark, and Fury tend to think, the human spirit has an incredible capacity for good. We’ve made strides this past year but there is still much more work to be done.

    I would like to continue to lead us, acting as a light to show the way to the incredible heights we can reach. However, there are many great candidates running for office this year, most of which I’ve worked with this past year, so I understand that the choice is a dificult one for all. If you choose to re-elect this farmboyfrom Smallville, Kansas again I will lead this country, once more, with truth and justice. If you should choose someone else as president, I will still serve this country proudly in whatever role I am given. No matter who you choose, let your voice be heard and vote.

    Sincerely,
    President Clark Kent

      So, the only time we really hear from you in addressing the voting citizens is when re-election time is here? Your absence and abrupt re-emergence is not very assuring.

      And I’ve heard tell that you have discarded your citizenship of the U.S.

      remind me again, as to why you should be re-elected? Especially if you do not get put into office we still get all of the same benefits. “If you should choose someone else as president, I will still serve this country proudly in whatever role I am given.”

      an interesting statement. I haven’t quite figured out if it is a bluff or truth.

        Sorry for not commenting as much as I’d like to, SS but I do have a country to run. Even still, I do read your blog with regularity. I have no control over the actor chosen to play me in movies but I assure you that I have not changed citizenship. Likewise, though the actor in the upcoming film is indeed British, he is still portaying an American Clark Kent so even then my citenzeship remains the same.

        Why would you expect me to NOT serve this country proudly no matter what role I’m asked to do? Isn’t that how it should work? Everyone that ran foroffice last year still gave it their all in the jobs they were given after they didn’t win the Presidency. You don’t have to be on top to make a difference and I want to see this country succeed and be the beacon of hope and strength that we expect it to be. In order to do that, it takes all of us doing our best however we can and whatever role is called for.
