And don't get me started on How Canadian Political Parties would do it.
Here we have American Eagle and USA Patriot Act, who are young heroes designed to appeal to the bases of the two mainstream American political parties. Again, a smart high-concept that at once illuminates the political divide while lampooning it. Of course, there's a part of me that thinks the concept doesn't go far enough and that you'd have lots of fringe party patriotic superhumans (And now that I think of it, what would a mash-up of Mr. A and Captain America be like? Whatever that would be, expect the Libertarians to like him).
