Election Day: Who Would Catwoman Vote For?

Between Captain AmericaGreen Arrow / Green LanternSpider-Man (Peter Parker), and Batman (Bruce Wayne), it's already been a busy day.

But for those of you just showing up, we're doing an expanded version of the 2012 post where I broke down comic book characters by politics. Because the 2016 election has been a joke since the nomination process.

This will be an all day thing. One post per character ... mostly. The shorter ones will be grouped together. After all, there's no much I can do with Deadpool. In fact, I did very little.

Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle (DC)

A professional thief, Selina would not be the type of person to complain about the 1%. She loves the 1%.

After all, without them, who else would she rob?

Selina would love Trump. She would prefer to rob him, however. Then again, he's not exactly her type. He's not broody enough.

She is also a single mother (or she was, pre-nDCU), so she's not exactly the pro-abortion type, assuming she even dwells on the matter.

And, let's face it, she, she has a tendency to jump the bones of the richest person in town. But, would this make her a Trump voter? Not necessarily.

However, Selina has also occasionally worked as a thief for the federal government; if she voted, she would vote her paycheck, and go for the guy most likely to fund the Company she works for.

So ... would that be Trump of Hillary? I don't see Gary Johnson

VOTE GOES TO: Trump ... maybe. Perhaps. She might think that Hillary would do more for her day job. 


Poison Ivy, aka Dr Pamela Isley (DC).

A radical environmentalist, heavy on the mental, Poison Ivy is the ultimate eco-terrorist.  She also happens to be bat-guano insane, taking monomania to a whole new level of crazy.  A one issue voter, she cares nothing for the "War on Women," since she has already declared the human race something worthy of extinction, and only cares about environmental issues.

Since she makes current Left-wing ecofreaks seem reasonable, she'd probably find the most hard-line environmentalist she can.  Barring that, she would approve of contraception, abortion, anything that would decrease the human population, and fewer people to trample her precious flowers.



Harley Quinn, aka Harleen Quinzel (DC)

A former shrink, Harley Quinn went quite mad a while ago, falling for the Joker.  She has a long history of tolerating abuse and putting up with whatever his narcissism and whimsy dictates.

However, she also had had enough at one point, and shot the little bugger.

Her mind would hear the phrase "War on Women" and think "War? What War? Who's shooting?"  Her sources of information would rely on either her precious "Mista Jay" or her best friend, Poison Ivy.  And, let's face it, Joker would enter a polling place to gas everyone to death, and then vote for Gary Johnson.

VOTE GOES TO: Whoever Joker tells her to vote for (see above), or whoever Ivy tells her (see above).
