Writer J. Caleb Mozzocco draws cartoons of himself asking superheroes about their political endorsements. Some of them, like Wonder Woman, didn’t really feel the need to give indepth answers, but I particularly like the level to which Batman appears to have considered his decision.

“I had a 13-year-old girl come up to me in Colorado — this is a dead true story — and say, ‘Well, you’re a wealthy white male … why are you here?’ And I was like, first of all, that’s the greatest question I’ve been asked on this entire tour. But secondly, she had conflated somehow in her head that only people vote for their own kind. And I made sure to tell her that that’s absolutely not the case.

“I think Miranda Hobbes would rather shoot herself in the head than vote for Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is so terrible on women’s issues. I know that there are women who support him, and it’s hard for me to understand, but certainly Miranda nor Carrie nor Charlotte nor Samantha, none of those women would ever vote for Mitt Romney. They would do something terrible first before they would ever vote for Mitt Romney.”
