You know, if they were real people.

Even though I spend most of my time being a GIANT NERD, I am paying pretty close attention to the elections. Even though politics are ridiculously complicated and frustrating most of the time, at the end of the day we all feel the effects of what happens in the elections whether we vote or not. And why am I concerned about the future of the galaxy- um, I mean America?

So why not combine fandom and politics?

After all, it's pretty much tradition. The first Captain America politics were extremely political- they featured Captain America punching Hitler in the face despite the strong pro-Nazi sentiment in New York at the time. So, if our heroes were real and alive today, who do you think they would vote for?
Here are the candidates (in case you needed a reminder).

Okay, Thor probably can't vote.

I doubt he'd be an American citizen (those tests are hard). But Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Clint Barton definitely are- and it seems reasonable to assume that Natasha Romanoff became a citizen through her work for S.H.I.E.L.D. Who do you think they'd be voting for?

@MarvelTrashcan I could see that. I'd definitely see Pepper as a Hilary supporter so that would make sense. I feel like Tony might defer to her on this one

@shannonl5 I think he'd go for Hillary because even though she's Democrat, she is still favors corporate interest. And while Tony may be making more humanitarian strides with his work, he still is in the business of making money.

@MarvelTrashcan absolutely. And I think that Tony might still have faith in this principle that a lot of more conservative politicians believe which is that private interests will step in for the sake of the public good. For example if a road is necessary for multiple businesses to transport goods, those businesses will pay for it to be built. That's not what happens in the real world of course- but I think Tony would buy into that.
