David Banner - Democrat. Incredible Hulk - Green Party.

i agree with everything on this list except for Iron Man.

my fav (iron man) has always been a republican - from his days as a defense contractor to his current civil war storyline. I don't necessarily view him as a neocon, but with his history of social progressiveness (and yeah, i mean that black guys were able to use his suit), I don't necessarily see him aligned with the current neocon/religious right led republican party. He has neocon tendencies (and is written as such in the most recent storylines) but, overall, he's not that assholish.

Don't blame me, I voted for Rorschach.

WHICH Green Lantern? Surely Hal Jordan, mass murderer, would be a Democrat for Deval Patrick. *ahem*

This is good. Daredevil was right on the money.

Campbell's a genius, and I'm not just saying that because he's one of my best internet friends.

I'm saying that because he's got a gun to my head.

Superman's a vegetarian, he's a member of the liberal media, he's personally benefitted from a lax immigration policy, he hates nukes, he's pro-science, he's suspicious of big business and corporate fatcats, and he supports truth and justice. He's a liberal for sure. I am not a nerd.

Judge Dredd? Ooh, tricky. American Fascist Party (seem to be a bit moribund)

That vegetarian bit (from Birthright contradicts the man's documented love of Beef Burgundy! I wonder how that shakes down in the post-Crisis^2 DCU!!!!

His ideas on green lantern are way out of date. And wrong from first principles.
(heh heh, punisher votes with a bullet, heh heh).
Thor is a monarchist.

My fav’rit - Martian Manhunter, gotta be Natural Law Party (all political problems can be solved through meditation). He embodies the Hobbsian idea that man is forbidden to do that which is destructive of his life, or takes away the means of preserving the same; and to omit that by which he thinks it may best be preserved. Plus, he’s big in the Southern Hemisphere.

Brilliant. The Batman section is my favorite by far. :D

A bit off-topic, but am I the only one of the comic nerds here that is loving this civil war storyline?

And I stopped reading marvels some time ago, after the Onslaught thing, that was just.. stupid.

I hope they don't screw up like they usually do, with some sort of "this is was just an alternate reality" or "hey, there's Galactus we should put rivalry asides".

We should have here more comic book FPP and funny cats images methink.
