Barack Obama | Captain United
Captain United is the most respected and revered of the Super Friends. Initially uncomfortable in his leadership position as earth’s premiere superhero but he will nevertheless step up to the challenge and do his best to serve the people he loves and protects.
He possesses a wide variety of powers: great strength, invulnerability, flight, heightened senses, and vision powers. Yet despite this he remains a most humble superhero preferring instead to talk about how the collective can better themselves rather than talk about his achievements or the villains that he beat to a pulp.
This self-effacing quality, ironically enough, is what endears him more to others.
Powers and Abilities
Captain United is easily the most powerful of the Super Friends especially with his wide variety of superpowers. Aside from the abilities mentioned earlier, the good Captain also has an easy charm about him which gives him an aura of trustworthiness and approachability which is not often seen on other heroes who are mostly viewed as demi-gods not on the same plane as human beings.
His openness is usually construed as a weak point in his otherwise invulnerable exterior by his enemies. They often going to great lengths to exploit this chink in his armor resulting in those being the closest to Captain United getting hurt.
“We reward people a lot for being rich, for being famous, for being cute, for being thin… one of the values I think we need to instill in our country, in our children, is a sense of ‘usefulness’, in other words, are we useful, are we making other peoples’ lives a little bit better?
