It might be election season in America, but here at Hypable we couldn’t help thinking about who we would really love to vote for. That’s right – fandom pairs and fandom posters. So who will be getting your vote?

Regardless of political affiliation, we can all unite behind our favourite fandoms. Forget American politics, the real questions are – could the Hulk ever be elected? Is it improper to vote for a husband and wife team? And what about a candidate who can’t even confirm his own running mate – a cool and calculated move, or just plain disorganized?

Choose your candidates, cast your vote, and then share the poster to show your fandom allegiance. Which fandom will win the real victory this election season?

‘Avengers’ ticket: Tony Stark/Bruce Banner


Iron Man

Stark and Banner have decided it’s time to get angry about the problems faced by today’s society. Worried about economic issues, social divisions, and the unfortunate inter-galactic aliens that seem to beset New York City? Once this political beast is unleashed, you can consider all of your problems solved. Plus they both get bonus points for being geniuses.

As expected, campaigning on their behalf will be Captain America and Thor. And there is little chance of this duo losing, with Black Widow and Hawkeye set to stuff ballot boxes across the world. But this bromance is happy to encourage a little friendly competition, safe in the knowledge that they can outsmart, outfly, outbuy, and outHulk any of their opponents. Not that they would stoop to such measures unless, you know, they were losing.

‘Game of Thrones’ ticket: Tyrion Lannister/Jon Snow


Game of Thrones

The odd couple of politics, Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow are campaigning on behalf of outsiders and outcasts everywhere. Unless you happen to be the incestuous product of a brother-sister relationship, with blonde hair and green eyes and named Joffrey, you’ll be supported and protected by this pair (if you do happen to be that incestuous byproduct, best vote for someone else).

An unlikely duo, Lannister and Snow have decided to pool their unique talents and make a run for politics, sure that their firm friendship and plethora of short jokes will be enough to get them over the line. They are unworried about attack ads and negative campaigning, sure that nothing can be said about them that they haven’t said themselves – and confident that as the last resort, a certain Kingslayer will be persuasive enough for potential mudslingers.

‘Once Upon A Time’ ticket: Prince Charming/Snow White


Once Upon a Time

Bound by true love and the desire to save the world from all evil, this husband and wife duo are ready for victory. With talents ranging from amazing horse riding abilities, always finding each other, breaking spells and brilliant archery skills, they will be a formidable foe for any opponent. Together they fight on the side of good, prepared to take on the world as a family.

Don’t be put off by their slight tendency towards split personalities, remember instead that this means they have experienced life in all its many facets – from above and below, as royalty and as thieves. Additionally, they can cater to many minorities – princes, John Doe coma patients who have lost their memories, and people whose children are almost the same age as themselves. This year vote for a world where magic, and true love, is real.

‘Doctor Who’ ticket: The Doctor


Doctor Who

Take the unusual step of voting for a single candidate this election, with no confirmed VP. However, we are sure you can expect a veritable revolving door of running mates, if his companions are anything to judge by. Still, the Doctor is sure he can take care of things by himself, and he never really is alone when he is with the TARDIS. He understands that what we really need is a Doctor – and more interesting food combinations.

The Doctor is advocating a platform of alien integration and ridiculous dancing. He is happy to provide personal references from Cleopatra to Winston Churchill and any number of other alien species – you need only ask, and he will provide. Rumours abound that the Doctor’s original slogan was to be “The Rotmeister,” although he was persuaded to change tactic by a former roommate. Also, he can provide a dinosaur, if that sways the vote at all.

‘Harry Potter’ ticket: Kingsley Shacklebolt/Arthur Weasley


Harry Potter

Fresh off his stint in the Muggle Prime Minister’s office, Shacklebolt has learned many things about politics, including his conviction that he could certainly do a better job. His running mate is none other than family man Arthur Weasley, bringing the neighbourly image to contrast Shacklebolt’s stately style. And boy does he have style.

Both bring credibility to the job, having fought against Voldemort and remained in the Ministry of Magic to rebuild society. Shacklebolt brings the gravitas and style, while Weasley offers the down-to-earth charm that leaves voters feeling as if they really do know him. They trust Shacklebolt with protecting their homes, while just wanting to chat to Weasley about electricity. And honestly, who doesn’t want to see a Weasley (almost) as King in charge?

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

The Dominators

The Dominators, collectively known as the Dominion, are an alien race from the farthest reaches of the universe. A technologically-advanced species who specialize in genetics, their society is extremely hierarchical, with status depending on the size of a red circle that appears on their foreheads.

Invasion! was a major, three-issue crossover event in 1989 that featured the Dominators joining an Alien Alliance to wipe out humanity due to the threat the meta-gene that allows for humans to develop superpowers presents.

When they traveled to Earth, heroes and villains alike teamed up to fight to protect the world. The Dominators were also an enemy of the Legion of Superheroes in the 30th century.

It’s also worth noting that Arrow‘s 100th’s episode will air during the crossover, so we should definitely expect something special.

Are you looking forward to the crossover between ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’?

Hypable’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist

‘Where You Lead I Will Follow’ by Carole King and Louise Goffin

What better way to kick off a Gilmore Girls playlist than with the show’s famous theme song? It’s the perfect opening song. (And if you choose to play it on repeat, that’s completely acceptable.)
 

‘This is Hell’ by Elvis Costello

It makes perfect sense that Jess’ first impression of Stars Hollow would be narrated by this song. After all, the starry-eyed small town life can be kind of overwhelming at first.
 

‘There She Goes’ by The La’s

Fact: This was the very first song played on Gilmore Girls! It accompanied an introductory look around Stars Hollow before introducing our favorite gals. Oh, the memories!
 

‘Then She Appeared’ by XTC

What a perfect song to mark Rory and Jess’ first kiss. It’s perfectly sweet and tender and just oh-so-totally them. It’s hard not to imagine the scene when listening to this song.
 

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

This was one of the songs that Hep Alien played at their very first gig! Sure, it wasn’t really a great night for Jess/Rory or the band, but it started out well enough!
 

‘Reflecting Light’ by Sam Phillips

As if Luke and Lorelai weren’t cute enough together at Luke’s sister’s wedding, they had to go and dance beautifully to this tender song.
 

‘Human Behaviour’ by Björk

What would a Gilmore Girls playlist be without including a song from one of the girls’ biggest inspirations? Just take a listen and think of their famous snow creation.
 

‘Eternal Flame’ by The Bangles

Make one of Lorelai’s favorite bands one of your favorite bands by listening to this track on our Gilmore Girls playlist on repeat!
 

‘One Line’ by PJ Harvey

“I love you, you idiot” is probably one of the most quotable lines on the show. This song just set the mood and really made it that much more memorable. It’s nothing less than perfect.
 

‘So Says I’ by the Shins

Who could ever forget the spring break scene where Paris tries to make out with Rory on the dance floor? The fact that The Shins were playing this song live during the scene just made it so much better.
 

‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Not only did Lane dance to this catchy tune in Rory’s room toward the beginning of the first season, but Hep Alien eventually covers it during a performance later in the series!
 

‘When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues’ by Bing Crosby and Gary Crosby

Watching Rory and Richard bond over this song in the hospital room is still one of the most memorable scenes of the series. Pour one out for the wonderful Richard Gilmore. We miss you, friend.
 

‘Inside Out’ by The Mighty Lemon Drops

The Gilmore Girls series finale was such a bittersweet episode, but this song definitely made for one of the most memorable moments: Luke and Lorelai kissing!
 

‘If I Could Write’ by Sam Phillips

This emotional song sums up the Gilmore girls’ love for each other perfectly, especially in times of sadness. Who could ever forget this song playing as Rory packs for a grip to Europe with Emily after fighting with Lorelai?
 

‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper

Lorelai and Emily Gilmore walking a catwalk to Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hit? Classic. Though they may not have gotten along often, at least they could bond over this song.
 

‘O’Oh’ by Yoko Ono

Remember that time when Rory skipped school to walk through New York with Jess, stopping for food and record shopping? This song was the perfect accompaniment for their adventure.
 

The La La Tunes by Sam Phillips

Okay, so these aren’t really actual songs per say, but Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be Gilmore Girls without them (and so neither would the Gilmore Girls playlist)! They’re so iconic!
 

‘My Little Corner of the World’ by Yo La Tengo

We decided to end our Gilmore Girls playlist on a cute note with this sweet song. The mental image of Rory and Lorelai runing at each other from across town during the season 1 finale is enough to make anyone smile.

 

What song(s) would you add to our ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist?
