DC Comics has just announced that it's sending its characters into the most terrifying parallel universe yet: the American political system. At a comic-con last week, the publisher's executive editor talked about its upcoming "DC Decisions" series, in which members of the DC universe will declare their partisan affiliations. "Everyones talking politics; its an elections year, and were going to try to see how the characters of our universe react to that," he said, which I think means that his writers have completely run out of material. So now that superheroes are going to start meddling in domestic politics, which way will they swing politically? A few guesses at some of the exciting partisan plot twists to come, after the jump.
Possible political revelations in "DC Decisions":
Superman: Illegal immigrant, journalist Plot twist: Uses super-duperdelegate powers to reverse time and rig the delegate-counting at the Democratic convention.
Batman: Aging, super-wealthy crime fighter Plot twist: Liked Giuliani, but now can't decide between McCain and former president Luthor.
Robin: "Ward" of aging, super-wealthy crime fighter Plot twist: Embarrassed when alternate-universe Obama is forced to declare that "Earth-Two Dick Grayson does not speak for me."
Wonder Woman: Broke the glass ceiling in her invisible jet. Plot twist: Once used her bracelets to deflect Bosnian sniper fire during a top-secret mission.
Plastic Man: Extremely flexible, perfect hair Plot twist: This early Mitt Romney backer may sit this one out.
Green Lantern: Cool ring gives him godlike powers Plot twist: Attacked on cable news after he says American flag lapel pins leave unsightly holes in his unitard.
Aquaman: Hangs out with fishes, probably suffering from mercury poisoning. Plot twist: Sending telepathic signals to get Al Gore to run.
Supergirl: Superman's cousin and occasional jailbait. Plot Twist: Retreats to the Fortress of Solitude after her "I've Got a Crush on Kucinich" video is leaked.
Rorschach: Creepy objectivist loner Plot twist: Being wooed by Ron Paul as a possible running mate.
All Paulite and DC fanboy hate mail in the comments, thanks!
Superman is an alien. ;-)
Perhaps mickey mouse...
Ahhh, but that would make James Bond a Libertarian then. He certainly takes liberties........snicker!!
Wonder Woman is another illegal alien!
Batman has a relationship with Robin so he MIGHT be a liberal....LOL.
If your business isn’t politics, keep your politics out of your business.
Then there's Alfred!
But wait! On TV, Aunt Harriet made sure everything was on the up and up ;-)
Man, am I glad they left out the AC/DC comics characters.
The Joker-John McCain!
Superman needs to use special powers to be a hero (not to mention being a jouranlist in his real life) Batman on the other hand is 100% real, just puts on a masks and fights crime. It is pretty obvious who the Republican is.
Well, the actress who played her on TV is half-Mexican (and a hottie in her prime).
Is that Hillary and Huma, the Wonder Twins?
Sage words, worth repeating.
Most comic book writers are stinking liberals, which is why I stopped reading them back in 2002.
It was when that asshole Straczynski took a potshot at Fox News in Amazing Spider-Man when I stopped reading them...
