Superhero Politics

Okay, so humor me. Let's delve deep into the comic book characters' politics.

1. Batman is a Democrat

As you can see, Batman is completely for gun control. During the early shaping of his character, he did carry a gun, and that was his sole weapon. But then they decided to make him the awesome dark knight that we know and love by making him a hater of guns and a user of all sorts of cool gadgets. In addition to his anti-gun policy, Batman also has a no-killing policy, which may suggest he is against capital punishment. All this evidence aside, Batman also has a gay son who he loves and supports indifferently. (Won't tell you which one, though). Plus, he works along side homosexual Justice League members. You know it's true.
Batman is not sexist either. It doesn't matter if you're a man, woman, or transvestite, if you are an evil super villain he will punch you in the face.

2. Spider-man is a Democrat

Okay, this one is a bit more obvious. Growing up in a middle-lower class family. Being taught that if you can, you should always help other. It's no duh that Spider-man is a democrat. He even goes to a school that's big on activism and rallying (Berkeley, perhaps?). He grew up in New York, believing fully in science (he ain't no creationist, bitches). I think we can continue without any controversy on this one.

3. Lex Luthor is a Republican

Because let's face it, he's basically a bald, cartoon version of Richard Nixon. He's evil, conniving, greedy, and uses his money and power to get away with murder. He's Chris Christie and George Bush's love child.
