Howard the Duck for President


Bookmark and Share

One of my favorite weekly columns to read on other sites is Comic Book Legends over at Comic Book Resources.  This week’s column has a bit about the 1976 Presidential race and the Marvel comics character Howard the Duck.

The question posed in the column is:

Howard the Duck got enough write-in votes in the 1976 Presidential Election to appear on the national charts.

You’ll have to head over there to get the whole story and explanation but Howard the Duck waged his own campaign for the Presidency.  It’s a nice little nugget of comic and political history.

Maybe we can have some fun this year and run someone else?  What comic book character would you like to see run for President?  What party would they run under?
