Awesome Photoshop of the 2012 Presidential Candidates as Batman Villains

Awesome Photoshop of the 2012 Presidential Candidates as Batman Villains

A Ron Paul supporter with some skills with Photoshop has created this amazing image of Mitt Romney as Two-Face, Obama as The Joker, Newt Gingrich as The Penguin, and Rick Santorum as The Riddler.

These great pieces of fan art were posted on the Ron Paul forum tonight and I had to share them. In a lot of ways the depiction of Ron Paul as Batman fighting evil villains like Two-Face and The Joker are sadly more accurate than most people care to think about.

To his supporters, Ron Paul has been the symbol of true liberty and speaker of truth, not like what dribbles out of the mouths of most other politicians like so much filler. The artist obviously sees Ron Paul as someone who battles a corrupt government and a bias media much like Batman battling the ills of Gotham. And like Batman, Ron Paul is seen as incorruptible, a symbol of hope. Of course, Paul has his detractors. A lot of people think he is unelectable because of his stance on the legalization of drugs and an isolationist foreign policy that dismisses Iran's attempts at gaining nuclear weapons. Would Batman put up with Ahmadinejad? Probably not.

1st one is great

On a political note, can someone please explain to me exactly what Ron Paul has accomplished during his time in office? He's SAID a lot of things, but has he ever really done anything other than being re-elected a bunch of times. I just don't get the Paul-bots.
BatSlam - 1/26/2012, 9:52 PM
um, this isn't a political platform, i get enough of this all day, if all of them where villians it would be cool, but to have one as batman is dumb.
mstaley3000 - 1/26/2012, 9:56 PM
Seriously, with the white face on Obama still? We've seen the Obama Joker portrayal before and it wasn't in a flattering way for the person who did it. They should have taken a clue from that and made him a different villain. Besides, Paul would be more suited for the Joker given the Joker's Randian philosophical outlook plus being insane.

Um, Two-Face's LEFT side is the scared one. FYI
BlindLemonShemp - 1/26/2012, 10:03 PM
Great Article! Love every bit of it.. and fully agree about Dr. Paul's constant uphill battle

Dont worry about the haters.. some people can't think logically or stray from the pack so they have to immediately call him 'insane' and shrug off the fact that he's the ONLY candidate that will save america
AsianVersionOfET - 1/26/2012, 10:05 PM
NEWT/PENGUIN FTW!
NextHero08 - 1/26/2012, 10:07 PM
This is COMIC BOOK MOVIE, not a campaign for whoevers political dick you want to ride. Do it somewhere else. We come here to get away from the joke we call our government douche.

Ron Paul as Batman FTW
SotNatt - 1/26/2012, 10:14 PM
Um...no. None of this. None of them. None of that. They're all terrible, on one foundation or another (even our Mr. President). To celebrate them in a fashion that puts them so close to something I love, comic books, offends me.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 10:17 PM
No politics please. We come to this site to escape that.
xfactor - 1/26/2012, 10:27 PM
ditto with everybody else who's against putting anything with politics on a comics site, don't care for 'em and that's that.

If you come to this website to escape life and don't want to be bombarded with politics, I say you've got much bigger problems, so take a long look in the mirror and see what you can do to fix it.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised!

@santoanderson- Ron Paul is the only candidate who is really defending our civil liberties. He doesn't just blindly side with his party, he sides with his FEELINGS. And plus he aint some damn flip-flopper like most candidates. For the most part, Ron Paul has remained fairly stable with his views. He tends to lose in elections because he is viewed as weaker and even on the John Stewert show they mentioned how Ron Paul is usually IGNORED by the media in favor of every other GOP candidate BUT him. Ron Paul is the underdog. He IS Batman.

Btw- I LOVE the first pic, truly epic hahaha!!

To those interested here's the link to the John Stewert video about Ron Paul that I mentioned earlier

LP4 - 1/26/2012, 11:15 PM
Oops! Haha here's the link

Really? Really? We have much bigger problems to worry about because all we simply want is an entertainment site, we love to escape to not mix with politics? Enjoy your revolution.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:19 PM
I don't trust a 76 year old behind the wheel, let alone being president of the country I live in.
ecksmanfan - 1/26/2012, 11:20 PM
Awesome. So CBM has now turned into a platform for political fanatics. Save that shit for CNN and FOX News. I don't come to CBM to read about political agendas and empty promises. Take it somewhere else folks. RIDICULOUS!
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:21 PM
A 76 year old that called global warming a hoax, and thought the civil rights act violated the constitution.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:22 PM
That is as political as I will get. This is not the site, I want to talk about TDKR or the Avengers, not, this.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:24 PM
(and he thinks affirmative action is unconstitutional). I am done with this now.
LP4 - 1/26/2012, 11:25 PM
@nailbiter- Please check out my above comments before this one. U don't need to debate with thanos83 he is just a hater, plain and simple. Ron Paul is awesome. He tells the ZTRUTH in all his debates, he calls out BOTH democrats AND republicans on the mistakes they've made. He tells the truth. And not some 'half-truth' like all othee candidates, no Ron Paul tells the honest to god truth and is fighting for US.
SageMode - 1/26/2012, 11:25 PM
Why'd my post of Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich being hatemongers get deleted?
RyanLantern77 - 1/26/2012, 11:26 PM
I have complete faith in Ron Paul to fix the shit Bush and Obama have done to this country. IMO he is the only one that isn't a total piece of shit.

He's the man, let him do his thing and give us the liberties we deserve
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:31 PM
If people really knew what Ron Paul wants to do to the country they wouldn't vote for him. I wish I could brainwash people like him. I mean you don't need Fed. aid to go to college right? Doctors will treat people for free if they are no restrictions on health care. Blacks and white should be separate if one party wants them to be (oh wait that was Ron Paul in the 60's). We don't need a dep't of transportation, FAA, Education, Agriculture. All those will be able to fund themselves. Hmm, let's create jobs by laying off millions of people. Yeah, that makes sense. If Ron Paul got his way unemployment would triple. See, CBM you forced me to get political. I didn't want to, but there is nothing going on ESPN.com, and I'm bored at the hospital.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 1/26/2012, 11:37 PM
@nailbiter

So he wants to pardon harmless drug offenders. That's fine, but his economic policy is horrendous. He will create more problems than solve. It seems the only people that like Ron Paul are those hoping pot will be legalized. As a Medical Doctor I would have no problem with that, but he wants to put millions of people out of work because it is unconstitutional for them to have jobs. The gap between the rich and the poor is already wide, and it will be even wider if he is elected. That is not truth is it propaganda.
