The Canadian Election was May 2nd, 2011!

Did YOU vote for the Super Hero Party, The Democratic Party for Super Villains, or the All Ninja Party?

We held the political debate of the century! LIVE ON TWITTER!

Where did the Super Villains stand on gun control? Would the Super Hero Party have cancelled the purchase of invisible jets by the Canadian Military? And where did the Ninjas stand on… er… anything at all?

Showtime: April 27th, @ 7:00 PM EST.

Follow on Twitter @MrScapeGoat - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

Follow on Twitter @MrScapeGoat - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

MrScapeGoat: If we have learned anything from the death of @RobertStrovesco ‘s monkey, it’s that we need to improve sidekick rights. #tightsandfights

 
 
Follow on Twitter @_Hanging_Chad_ - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

_Hanging_Chad_: It’s unnecessary to support them, the free market will take care of sidekick training. It’s just much more efficient! #tightsandfights

 
 
Follow on Twitter @SuperLungfish - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

SuperLungfish: And how would the Super Hero Party improve the lives of sidekicks, @MrScapeGoat? #tightsandfights

 
 
Follow on Twitter @_Hanging_Chad_ - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

_Hanging_Chad_: It’s inefficient to spend all this money training and equipping sidekicks when most of them will die anyways #jasontodd #tightsandfights

Follow on Twitter @MrScapeGoat - Transmedia Superhero Comedy Series

MrScapeGoat: I would extend the waiting period for death rays, or just get rid of death rays altogether. Death rays cause death! #tightsandfights
