Affiliation: Republican, coming out in favour of a government run Project Sentinel and also the creation of power augmentations for flatline humans.
Powers: Mimicry - up to 8 powers at once
Weaknesses: Insanity, overwhelmed by too many powers
Weight: 185 lbs.
Preferred Dress: He likes to bend towards business casual, not wanting to look overly 'fancy' and alienate people nor stiff like he usually accuses Pryor to be. He, however, cannot pull off Tony Stark's swag and should never, ever try.
Temperament: Osborn has a way of making people believe he has a grand vision of the future without actually explaining what that grand vision is. He's a person of many words to the public and most of his actual action happening behind the scenes where he also never completely reveals his plans but always has something spectacular to promise.
History: Osborn has been the CEO of Oscorp and involved in politics for many years. Considering some of the top secret projects he has been commissioned by the US Government to work on at times a good many of his creations might not meet some people's moral standings but he isn't one to quibble about morality when there is progress to be made.
Affiliation: Republican, coming out in favour of a government run Project Sentinel
Occupation: Current head of the Committee on Superhuman Activities
Weight: 175 lbs.
Hair: Brown, balding
Preferred Dress: He doesn't put in much thought about his appearance and trusts the people getting him ready for public appearances to do all of that junk. As such he usually looks a bit on the innocuous side as they've decided he's best when not drawn attention to.
Temperament: Gyrich is bureaucracy in action or, rather, inaction. He's a person easily annoyed but coached to hide it for the debates and public appearances. All in all he'd much rather be at work than parading around so the sooner this election is over and he has his job the better.
History: Gyrich has dealt with Osborn for a good long while as his government liaison in what was commissioned from Oscorp. In politics he has held a few positions here and there but most recently settled in as the head of the Committee on Superhuman Activities, a branch of the Mutant Registration Act.
Affiliation: Pro-mutant Democrat
Occupation: New York Senator; formerly a housewife, pilot, conqueor
Powers: telepathy, telekinesis, teleporting
Weight: 110 lbs.
Preferred Dress: Madelyne keeps things professional to a fault almost as she is well aware she will always be under scrutiny for such frivolities; hem lines will be exact, there will be no cleavage, hair will always be put away in a way that is always professional but never looks overworked as if she is putting on airs.
Temperament: Where her running mate is probably the more electable of the two with his people skills, Madelyne comes off as the stern leader as her involvement in the senate has honed her nature into a more shrewd state.
History: As senator Madelyne has argued the pro-mutant side of things every single time the topic has come up on the floor. She has been rather outspoken on the subject and has been a key pusher for reforms in how the 'mutant situation' has been handled ever since the government started taking such measures.
Nickname: Azazel (termed by right-wing media)
Affiliation: Pro-mutant Democrat
Powers: Teleportation, Metamorph, Will Bending
Weight: 149 lbs.
Eyes: Red (natural, can and have been disguised)
Skin: Red (natural, can and have been disguised)
Unusual Features: Pointed ears, tail (natural, can and have been disguised)
Preferred Dress: It's politics, you must look your best. Mr. Zazel prefers darker suits but tries to make sure one or two things seem 'undone' as to not appear too stiff or perfect and keep up an amicable appearance.
Temperament: A rather jovial sort, actually, and prone to playing 'the good ol' boy' in interviews and the like, Mr. Zazel has done quite well for himself in the realm of politics as he is a noted smooth talker and almost always appears to be getting along with a person even if he agrees with absolutely nothing they say.
History: A Stanford law man, Zazel has been working in the courts for some time and only recently made the swing into politics where he has become a surprise hit with his more calculated and less boisterous approach. One can never say that Zazel preaches but he knows how to get his point across and he knows how to make a foolproof set of laws, binding contracts if you will.
Occupation: Vice President, CEO of Stark Industries
Weight: 225 lbs.
Preferred Dress: Whatever he feels like because he's Tony fucking Stark. …Though, mostly suits and ties because he looks fantastic in them. However, the same could be said of anything he wears.
Temperament: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. Does more really need to be said?
Family: Hope Stark (Daughter)
History: While he's a self-proclaimed genius, Tony actually has the degrees to back up his intelligence. In addition to being a genius playboy, he inherited and runs the family business, Stark industries, while having an interest in politics. Having accomplished the position of Vice President, Tony's decided being the President would be a better fit for him, as is his running mate James Rhodes.
Occupation: US Military, Tony's running mate
Preferred Dress: There is some militarism that is hard to shake out of Rhodes and it shows in any clothes you put him in no matter how casual. He's the respectable look to Stark's slightly rumpled playboy.
Temperament: In a word, responsible. He is amicable enough but he doesn't simply come off as someone you can consider a friend, rather someone you can actually admire and respect.
History: Rhodes has been a military man most of his life coming from small town America and working his way on up. He became connected with Stark early on in both of their careers and, despite very different leanings, somehow work together as they both need something to temper themselves with.
