    Today is Independence Day in the United States, when Americans celebrate the founding of this country after rejecting British rule. It is typically symbolized by fireworks, cook outs, and people sporting red, white, and blue outfits. But for us at Multiversity, it is simply the excuse to ask the most important American question of all: Superman or Captain America?

    Now, ignore for a fact that Cap has the home field advantage, being born in New York City, or that he literally has the word ‘America’ in his name. This is a nation of immigrants, and Superman being born elsewhere, yet choosing to represent the values of the country, is a pitch-perfect American success story. Cap literally fought for this country in World War II, whereas Superman has always been less of an interventionist when it comes to wars.

    We’re not asking which hero you personally prefer; we’re asking which better represents the United States of America on this, her birthday. So, vote in the poll, and then sound off in the comments!
