Voting has ended for Comic Vine's very first 'Comic Book Question of the Week!' On Tuesday, we asked you which character you would want to lead your country and the options ranged from Superman to Doctor Doom. Over 200 Viners voted and now the results are in. Did everyone think Cyclops was right and want him to lead their nation... or would they rather bow before Darkseid?
With 29% of the votes, Captain America wins. Go on, pretend you're even remotely surprised by this outcome.
It was fairly obvious the Super Soldier would be the victor of this first question. He's basically the total package: intelligent, a gifted leader and a man who stands firmly by his sense of right and wrong. He's widely respected by his peers (which includes a God or two) and loved even more by the public. Fun fact: he was actually elected President of the United States over in the Ultimate universe, too.
Personally, I think Wonder Woman or Iron Man would have been great choices. Wonder Woman's a natural leader who knows what needs to be done when it comes to the tough choices, and Tony Stark's focus on technological advancements could really help our nation (this would be huge for renewable energy). That said, we'd likely have a Monica Lewinsky-like scandal every other week in Tony Stark was the Commander-in-Chief.
Here's the rest of the voting results:
- Batman : 16.7%
- Superman: 15.8%
- Wonder Woman: 9.0%
- Iron Man: 7.7%
- Dr. Doom: 6.4%
- Storm : 5.1%
- Cyclops : 4.7%
- Magneto : 4.3%
- Darkseid: 1.3% (how did this man not get more votes?!)
Viners, would you be okay with Steve Rogers leading your nation? Sound off below and be sure to check back next Tuesday for the next 'Comic Book Question of the Week!'
