The 2022 elections are coming and debates about the candidates are increasingly in the skin. In this intense climate of competition, a good alternative to escape the real world is to invest in imagination.
It was with this in mind that the writing of the My Series imagined what government would be like in a world of superheroes we already know. Who would be a good ruler? One thing is fact, being a good superhero doesn’t mean being a good leader of the nation.
Therefore, we selected 5 Heroes Who, Despite We Love You, Would Make Bad Presidents or, at the very least, questionable.
Heroes Who Wouldn’t Be Good Presidents
We can start the list with the most obvious of all: Shazam. The hero, who is actually a pre-teen in an adult’s body, has the maturity of a child, obviously.
Perhaps one of the most controversial on the list, Captain America may seem, at first glance, to be a good option to govern a country (as long as it is the United States, of course), but the truth is that the soldier errs on the “impartiality” aspect.
After all, Steve Rogers practically started a civil war to defend his friend Bucky – involved in the death of Tony Stark’s parents. Putting your interests above the common good is not cool in a government, Mr. Rogers.
How about putting a billionaire to lead the nation? Despite being concerned about the safety of citizens, Bruce Wayne doesn’t seem to understand the roots behind so much violence in Gotham. The same goes for Iron Man.
The character played by Ryan Reynolds hardly takes anything seriously. So it would be hard to imagine the hero leading anything that needs an ounce of seriousness.
Wanda (Scarlet Witch)
The Scarlet Witch even had the potential to be a good ruler, but we can say that everything went wrong after Avengers: Endgame. With a mind beyond complex and slightly disturbed after the events of WandaVisionit wouldn’t be safe to have the most powerful sorceress in the universe as president.
In your opinion, which heroes would be bad presidents?
