Lex Luthor for President.
That's all I have to say.

Bah! Luthor is just jealous of the keen intellect and powerful statesmanship of Doom!

To steal a slogan from the Cthulhu 1996 campaign, "Why vote for the lesser evil?"

I miss the pre-CrisisOnInfiniteEarth days, when Lex Luthor and Superman were sworn enemies from childhood. Know why Lexy was bald? Superboy accidently messed up some lab experiment is "new pal" Lex was working on, and from then on Luthor swore vengeance! LOL! It was so corny it was lovable.

Now the plots are straight off the presses in today's headlines. How boring. If I wanted to read about political intrigue I wouldn't need a comic book. Let me guess: through underhanded shifty maneuvers, Luthor somehow convinces Superman to be his vice-president. Whoop de freakin' doo.

When Brainiac sues RIAA for copyright infringement because he bought the patent to useless slave labor of musicians under the guise of 'work for hire', I'm burning my collection of the Ambush Bug miniseries in protest. Comic books are supposed to be fun. They're not supposed to be regurgitations of the daily news.

I thought he wasn't going to run this year.... Luthor is the little guy with the big ears and the charts, right?

Maaaaaaaad props to Zach for the Ambush Bug reference. Damn, I sure miss that guy. Him and 'Mazing Man...lets hear it for criminally underappreciated, self-referrential members of the DC universe.

My vote goes to the Total Package, Lex Luger.
