The forties and fifties were fairly straight laced as far as presidential appearances go, in the sixties things started to get a bit strange. DC Comics had Superman reveal his secret identity to JFK, and before the comic is published JFK is assassinated. DC Pulled the comic, but LBJ asked them to print it in full.
IMO, JFK was the last great American president. May he rest in peace.
After this, comic books get really weird with Abraham Lincoln.
Abe gets in an arm wrestling match with "Scalphunter".
Suppose some future generation invents the means of which to travel through time. Would they go back and try to save president Lincoln?
If such a feat were accomplished, time itself would be out of whack, causing news robots of the future to get a bit confused.
Robby the Robot is about 1107 years slow on the news. Of course, if I was flashed by an elongated man, I would probably be out of sorts too. Anyway, if such a cataclysm happened, I suppose we could send an actor back in time to take Lincoln's place.
So, what do we do with Lincoln in the future? I think we should just throw a space helmet on him and make him an ambassador to the United Federation of Planets or something.
In part three, we will take a look at fictional comic book presidents, as well as some leftover goodies from the seventies. Stay cool.
