Even by presidential election standards, it's been a tough year. We've suffered through a barrage of attack ads, neverending debates and not nearly enough embarassing slip-ups. With less than a week left, the worst is (mostly) over. But these last days will be a nasty slog.
To help you through it, we re-cast our politicians (and their wives) as comic book characters. Vice President Joe Biden as The Joker? Given his non-stop smirking through the vice-presidential debate, it was a natural fit. After those infamous pictures of Congressman Paul Ryan's killer biceps, we knew he had to be The Hulk. Here's the whole crew: The presidential candidates, their wives and running mates. Because if you don't laugh, you might cry.
