Oh come on man...With Caps battle tested history, and his keen sense of combat necessity, he would no question find a way to beat down Superdork....

Thats easy. Captain America, born and raised. Superman is an illegal alien. Technically he could never be President. You cant be the American symbol if you cant even be the leader of America.

The first Americans weren't American technically. Jerry and Joe, were illegal immigrants, that was the point of Superman, that he came to America, and was accepted by the people. That's why I think he was such an inspiration then.

I see him as American, and more known for it. So my vote is for Superman.

It was never said that only American can vote. And i think non-Americans vote would be better, because hes asking who is the bigger American icon. overseas, Superman is more known for Truth and justice crap more than cap. So am just saying that. ;D

lol i didnt think he was asking who the more well known is, that's not worth asking. i thought he was asking who better embodies the ideals of the united states of america.

#49 Posted by acewasp23 (6087 posts) - - Show Bio

all votes are important. lol

i still think Superman is the bigger symbol, not only was he raised by the all American family (of that time period) but he also represents the American dream as being some one that comes from outside the country/earth and can make a positive difference not only for him self but for the people around him.

Colt Python says:

i said in the beginning of the thread Not counting the fact that Captain America wears the American flag or uses the American shield. lol

#50 Posted by Buckshot (18915 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't get why a thread that is specifically stated to NOT be a battle is in the battle forum, but whatever. Some people said that Superman couldn't be it because he's an alien, but few "Americans" are native to America. Most of us or our ancestors are from elsewhere. The stuff acewasp said above also comes into it. Despite that though, and the fact that I think he's probably a bigger symbol, I'm going with Cap for some reasons that include him actually going to war for his country, fighting for what he believes in even when that disagrees with his government, him starting out as a normal guy, and some other stuff.
