5 Comic Book Candidates Who'd Make Good Presidents & 5 Who Wouldn't

5 Awesome Candidates

5. Cyclops (Scott Summers)

Not power-hungry, Phoenix-possessed Scott Summers, but the one we got to know and love in the 60s and 70s. The efficient, smart, loyal team leader of the X-Men who was calculating, intelligent, and not completely driven by his emotions. He was calm under pressure, made the tough decisions, and led the X-Men to victory after victory. And he knew when to step down from his position or when he was out of line. Summers grew up humble and very socially aware of his position as head of the team. With Professor X as a mentor, he really broke through and often-times became the knight in shining armor that the X-Men so desperately needed. He's currently become a bit of a punching bag, but he was most definitely not without his fans in the whole AvX storyline. Sensible, cool, and whip-smart, Scott Summers is a Grade-A candidate.

Cameron Carpenter is an aspiring screenwriter, current film and journalism student, and self-diagnosed cinephile, which only sounds bad in certain circles. Devoted fan of comics, movies, theater, Jesus Christ, Sidney Lumet, and Peter O'Toole, he sometimes spends too much time on his Scribd and comicbookmovie.com, but doesn't think you're one to judge, devoted reader. You can follow him on Twitter to watch him talk to people you didn't know exist. Oh, and Daredevil is quite the big deal around here (my head).
