What is happening on the cover of Action Comics Annual #3, published not so long ago in 1991? Apparently, Superman ran for President of the United States and won! (We wonder if he had any primary opponents.). Well, for more information on the plot of this fateful issue, we once again turn to ComicVine:
Waverider decides Superman is too powerful not to look into his future again. This time he sees a future where Superman has run for President and won. While in office, he is able to bring peace to the world. upon announcing to his superhero colleagues that the world is going to disarm all nuclear weapons, starting with America, Guy Gardner calls him a traitor and attacks him. During the battle, Superman is able to take control of Guy Gardner’s power ring, and after taking Gardner into custody, the other Green Lanterns from Earth offer to let Superman keep the ring. Waverider watches as Superman turns it down citing power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Seeing this makes Waverider realize Superman would never become the Monarch, so he decides to never bother Superman again.
Deciding never to bother Superman again sounds like a good idea. We wonder how Superman achieved disarmament and whether it was the same approach he took in the 1987 film, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. See here for that method:
Ah, 1987. Those were the days.
