So once, a third party policital hack met Captain America and leaked a rumor that Cap would run for President:

Reactions are varied:

(Screw you, Matt)

Even his fellow Avengers differ..

In the end, he decides that the Presidency is part of a system that requires compromise, and he prefers to portray an uncompromising ideal.

And here is a random picture of Cap that I like, though I have no idea why...

See, Cap? If you'd run for president, the secret service would be able to help you out of jams like that.

The Human Torchette was pretty awesome.

I liked the Mangaverse well enough at first, but they lost me when they started making every single storyline a Big! Important! Story! Where people DIE! I mean, they wiped out the whole Avengers a scant few issues after introducing them. And they were COOL, that's the thing! If you're going to create characters and then promptly wipe 'em off the map, you shouldn't make 'em interesting ones that you want to see more of. Even in the regular Marvel U, not EVERY storyline is a great big blow-uppy Earth go Kaboom sort of story. The first one worked great, because sequels seemed unlikely, but then more came along and did the same thing, and it just got old real fast.

I only read the first trade. Although that sounds pretty awful I shall avoid the rest of the series now.

It's not all that bad - it has some interesting ideas and so forth - it's just not a concept that really works in a series. It was designed to be a stand-alone mini, and all the subsequent storylines reflect that.

Not so. There's a What-If Captain America Ran For President where, okay, he died, but things turned out all right, really. Also, it tickles me that his VP was a black man.

Plus, there's that one Marvel Adventures Avengers comic where they run into the Agents of Atlas. Okay, alternate!Cap was turning the world over to Kang, but that reality still wasn't horrible.

And in Marvel Avengers Giant Size, when the Agents of Atlas found Cap early, he eventually became President and then handed over power to Kang.

I think there was a What If where he became president. The Secret Service couldn't keep up with him.

That guy probably also thinks the moon landings were faked. "I've never been to the moon, how do I know anyone else has?" Of course, by his logic, how does he know France exists, if he's never been to France. "France is just a plot by the CIA to make us eat snails and fish eggs!"

Belgium exists! I've been there! It's very flat, and they like Tintin, Christmas lights, and omelets.

This was a story that had much potential. Byrne's run on the book was cut short and what was to be a 3 parter became 2.

I have this in a trade. :D

Also, I have to say that I liked the What-If for this. Someone tried to assassinate him while he was making a speech, and the Secret Service people weren't able to react as fast as he could, but when he captured the guy they were all awkward.

Daredevil can read by feeling impression of the printed letters. No really he can.

Fun fact: Stern got this story idea when the previous writing team proposed it to him (when he was editor), except he was actually going to win and serve a term as president. Stern said no, that was too big a change from the real world.
