News Flash: 616 Captain America Declines Presidential Bid


Just offering up images from the classic Captain America #250 (which I own) as an alternative to the Cap as President hype for today.

Thanks to the Blinded Me With Comics website for the images.

Aside form the John Byrne art, I love that comment above from Cap which starts with “We must all live in the real world…” Only Roger Stern could make a comic book character say that and get away with it. It also holds weight today, as the world and it’s political landscape have become like a parody of some grim and gritty comic from the nineties.

It’s just as well it’s the Ultimate Universe Cap and not the original Cap as president. The Civil War ruined his bid. He would never be able to get around having worked with Mark Millar.
