    After being bombarded with news of "recent events" (*sigh*), I decided that this week's contest should be very political: avs of political figures in Scifi & Fantasy Film and Television. Any character that is elected, appointed, assigned, promoted to, or achieves a civilian political position--mayors, presidents, congress or senate, member of a legislative board, someone given a position of authority by a group, etc. No persons born to power or who achieved it only by physical force--so, Conan? No. Harriet Jones? Yes. Examples: Nixon's head in Futurama, mayor Wikins in Buffy, Ambassador Londo Mollari in B5, President Skroob in Spaceballs, etc. If you're not sure, just ask.

    Standard av rules apply: 200 x 200 pixels max, 1 MB max, and work/Google safe.

    You may enter up to two avatars. I'll try to get the voting thread up on Wednesday, the 16th.

    Here's mine:
    The Mayor in The Nightmare Before Christmas

    Ambassador/Secretary General Chrisjen Avasarala, in The Expanse.
