"What if Superman had decided to fly down, rip off the roof of the White House, and grab the President right out of the Oval Office? Who would have stopped him?"
Dexter Tolliver[src]

The President of the United States was the head of state and leader of the United States Government during the 2013-2017 presidential term.


Kryptonian invasion[]

When the Kryptonian ships made its presence known above Earth, the President declared a nationwide state of emergency.[1]

Showdown in Gotham Port[]

"God have mercy on us all."
―President of the United States[src]

During the Showdown in Gotham Port, the president called the army to ask what was going on. Soon after, he gave permission for NASA to use nuclear armaments to kill Doomsday in orbit, at the possible cost of killing Superman as well. However, the attempt failed, resulting in giving Doomsday even more power to absorb whilst knocking Superman out of commission temporarily. Secretary Calvin Swanwick then noted that they couldn't attack, lest they make the creature more powerful. When the president asked for clarification, Swanwick emphasized that the creature was unkillable.[2]
