Which Superhero Would You Be?

Entertainment Weekly hits the Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates with the hard thought provoking question, “which superhero would you be”. Overall, a nice q&a for both candidates about their pop culture habits, and some answers I wouldn’t expect.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be?

Barack Obama: I was always into the Spider-Man/Batman model. The guys who have too many powers, like Superman, that always made me think they weren’t really earning their superhero status. It’s a little too easy. Whereas Spider-Man and Batman, they have some inner turmoil. They get knocked around a little bit.

John McCain: Batman. He does justice sometimes against insurmountable odds. And he doesn’t make his good works known to a lot of people, so a lot of people think he’s just a rich playboy.
