Election Day: Who would Deadpool 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.

Deadpool (AKA: Wade Wilson)

He's a bit of a nonstarter.

Born Wade Wilson (maybe), Deadpool is a mercenary, so he's a good capitalist, in theory, but he's not exactly the type to have an IRA or a stock portfolio.

The "Merc With a Mouth," Deadpool is officially insane. Not a little touched, not just overly daring, he is completely unstable -- he's got ADD, a little schizophrenia, serious memory problems, and an on-again-off-again relationship with Marvel's Lady Death.

VOTE GOES TO: Romney, then Obama, then Romney, then ... oh look, tacos!

See, I don't you I couldn't do much with him.


Norman Osborn aka: the Green Goblin (Marvel).

Yup. I had to do another one.

One of the most evil bastards in the Marvel universe, Norman Osborn, by day, is a seriously big big business Wall Street CEO.  He is a vicious psychopath and merciless killer.  Norman Osborn mostly resides in New York City, which makes him a definite shoe-in for a Democratic voter, no matter who the candidate is.

Also, keep in mind -- as I noted with Iron Man -- that a lot of Wall Street tycoons are supporters to the Democratic party -- John Corzine, Robert Rubin (Goldman Sachs), Citibank, and George Soros (Democrat and Obama's biggest supporter), Brookfield Asset Management, Lehman Brothers (who later worked for the Obama Administration).

Can you imagine what Osborn would do with a stimulus package?

VOTE GOES TO: Hillary. Though he might object to someone with a more hideous laugh than him.

One more I think.


Two Face, aka Harvey Dent (DC)  

Harvey has a split personality, in more ways than one. Before he went crazy, Harvey was a prosecutor, which makes him a perfect shoe-in for a Republican voter.

However, after he was disfigured with acid, he has a serious problem of making up his mind on anything at all. Almost all binary problems are solved with a flip of a two-headed coin, one side scarred.

VOTE GOES TO: It's a toss up. A coin toss you might say

See the previous post: Captain America
Green Arrow / Green Lantern.
Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
Batman (Bruce Wayne)
Iron Man (Tony Stark)

Or, while we're all here.... Murphy's Law of Vampiressequel to the second place Sad Puppies 4 nominee for best novel, and Dragon Award nominated novel Honor at Stake came out yesterday
