-- Stephen Colbert
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 573 Variant B

Stephen Colbert was a candidate for President of the United States who ran as a third party candidate. After departing from a campaign event with a poor turnout, he saw Spider-Man battling Grizzly. He tried to help Spider-Man in his duel, but Spider-Man insisted that it was not Colbert's fight to be had, and took him to a nearby building. As Spider-Man continued his fight, Stephen Colbert pushed a statue off of the building and it hit Grizzly on the head. Spider-Man thanked him for his help, and gave him a ride home. In the end, Colbert won the popular vote, but lost to Barack Obama in electoral votes.[1]
