Which brings up the question: which characters actually displayed the
most leadership during the Infinite Leadership Crisis (so far)?

For my money (and there's not much of that), both Captain Continuity
and Limp-Asparagus Lad acted as true leaders.  Each was willing to
take on the administrative tasks no one else wanted for the
good of the team, allowing others to solve the mystery or fight the
villains.  To me, that's what leadership is all about...

...and yet none of us placed them on the ballot for the election.
