  1. i think the displaced citizens of New York City have been denied their full right to vote.

    it wasnt Colbert that destroyed the city 3 times in three events

    and i think Jamie Madrox may have been leaning towards Obama. That FUBARs everything :)

  2. Marvel reflects what happens in the real world?

    *looks at the current state of 616*

    You’re kidding, right? Are you implying that when Dark Reign is over we’re going to ‘status-quo’? Or maybe this is a case of ‘reality as you see it’?

    My guess is that Colbert would have kept his presidency if McCain had won.
