Hulk should be Secretary of Education. He is a scientist and he'll smash anyone who pushes edufads.

Iron Man should be Secretary of Energy. His arc reactor could revolutionize clean energy.

Ant Man for Attorney General because we need somebody who has been in the system to spearhead criminal justice reform.

Scarlet Witch for Treasury Secretary
Wolverine for Secretary of Agriculture (because he always grows back.)
Professor Xavier for Housing and Urban Development (if he can keep rebuilding that school every few years, he should be able to build houses.)
Dr. Strange for Secretary of Health (or at least Surgeon General)

(though about half of us would have preferred Captain America).
His school PSAs running in the background in Spiderman Homecoming were even more amazing than the "Would you like to know more" bits from Starship Troopers.

FWIW I'm really enjoying Daredevil season 3. The secret origin of Bullseye episode was particularly good.

My recurring thought watching Luke Cage season 2 is if I'm out here waiting for Shades and Comanche to just bone already what must poor Ellie have endured?

I dunno. Wanted a Black Widow movie since the first Avengers. But I lost interest in the MCU. After Infinity War and Endgame, I was just like "yeah whatever".

Elsewhere on the internet I had a brief argument with a dude who maintains that just because the USAF lent facilities, manpower, and equipment to the production of Captain Marvel in exchange for some glory shots, script approval, and the side production of an actual recruiting video that there is no USAF propaganda in CM. Either I'm not as persuasive as I think, or there is some lingering reluctance to acknowledge any flaws whatsoever with CM lest they lead to the other guy adding on "oh and also what's the deal with women being heroes instead of sex objects?"

Sort of? She never really wore anything that revealing, and her battle armor was actually pretty practical. I don't even think her boots were stilettos.

Uh huh. But you'd totally hit that right?
