There’s no form of headcanon that I more consistently struggle with than headcanons about politics, like, I just cannot believe that literally every member of the Avengers is going to vote for Bernie Sanders
BUT HAVING SAID THAT, I am a hypocrite and do care deeply about Thor and politics, where he doesn’t really care about American government (and come on, he’s royalty, there’s got to be a part of him that’s like “what’s with this election bullshit, Jane, explain democracy to me once more,” and Jane’s like “WE DON’T HAVE DEMOCRACY, WE HAVE AN OLIGARCHY OF THE RICH AND POWERFUL,” because, yeah, this little anti-military, space and alien loving hippy living in her van is probably half socialist, half conspiracy theorist), but Thor is PASSIONATE about:
- The political goings on of every Nordic state
- The local government of the small town he and Jane settled in
He is the worst person to have at your local town meetings. He does not believe in the two minute slot for speaking. He has memorized Robert’s Rules of Order and every part of the local tax code. He understands how many trucks were supposed to be going up and down this road, and he doesn’t understand why the city council has not dealt with that. No, he won’t sit down, he’s still talking. He has opinions about the town parks. They are too small.
