Let's Kill Hitler

Hey, the New York Times would like to know if you (yes, you) would kill Baby Hitler? Well, wouldja? (As opposed to say, just punching Adult Hitler.)

I imagine after they decided 'let's poll everyone to see if they'd kill Baby Hitler,' it wasn't that far a leap to making the infographic look like a rattle. I'm betting that at one point during the design process, that rattle had a toothbrush mustache.

Anyway, would you kill Baby Hitler? Booster Gold wouldn't!

Even Midnighter (The Batman from Another Universe, Who's Now in the Same Universe As Batman So Why Bother, Really?™) wouldn't kill Baby Hitler.

We've established that heroes and anti-heroes wouldn't kill Baby Hitler (the vote is still out on, say, the Punisher or Wolverine), but would comic book characters kill adult Hitler?

Well, let's find out today, all day, on Let's Kill Hitler!
