Recent news out of the House of Ideas implies that Ultimate Captain America is going to be successfully elected as a write-in candidate for President of the United States of Ultimerica. Leaving aside discussion of whether Ultimate Cap is a juvenile-wish-fullfillment-idea-of-the-military, jingoistic, sloganeering, aggressively confrontational jackwagon (which he unequivocally is, thank you) or the legality of such a bid (I suppose he is an American citizen over the age of 35) there are other unspoken issues at play. Ulticap has been shown to be somewhat skilled in the role of field leader, but what real expectations could we have of a Steve Rogers presidency? Ultimate Steve Rogers is a man who has been demonstrated to have the same response to nearly any stimulus (Threat of violence? Shieldinnaface! Iron Man too big for britches? Shieldinnaface! You’ve got diptheria? Shieldinnaface!) who has been shown to have no patience for opposing viewpoints, and who has demonstrated a disturbing tendency towards borderline sadistic behavior, exemplified by his penchant for literally kicking enemies when they’re down.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) doesn’t know anything about NASCAR or YouTube videos, either, asking: Is there ANY superhuman who you might trust as your commander-in-chief?
