Captain America to become president

Via FCMM we read that the Ultimate version of the star-spangled hero will be elected chief exec in Ultimate Comics Ultimates nos. 15-16.

Knowing modern Marvel (and DC) as we do, watch out. According to Avi Green the Ultimate Cap is supposed to be more conservative than the mainstream Marvel Universe Cap; therefore, if this Capt. America becomes president it is a pretty safe bet that he'll either be a miserable failure, or the epitome of corruption a la Richard Nixon.

Wasn't regular, Earth-616 Cap considered for the Presidency once?

Yep -- in a 1980 issue, I believe. I blogged about it previously. Issue #250 ...?

Yep, you're right, #250. I checked the Colossus archives. He turned it down there, though, because he felt that becoming President would limit his ability to preserve the American Dream.
