Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

Every Wikipedia on a war or battle has the belligerents, date, outcome, etc. in an info box on the top-right corner of the page, and most people pages have biography sections. The idea behind this thread is simple: edit the infoboxes so that the outcome of a major conflict is different, as if the infobox is from an alternate world.

To do this, simply click the edit option for the article (or, if it's locked, hit "view source"), change the infobox, hit preview*, and take a screenshot.**

*Make sure you don't save your changes to the article.

**[NOT PRESENT IN THE ORIGINAL]**
Alternatively, you can copy-paste the infobox into the Sandbox and take a screenshot.

DO NOT POST CURRENT POLITICS HERE. THIS THREAD MAY BE LOCKED IF IT CONTINUES.

And to start with, I'm afraid things cannot get any better.

In some cases, the infobox will be separate from the article (I.E. You will see {{WW2Infobox}}). To access this info box, simply type "Template:kissingheart:Whichever one you're looking for*" into the Wikipedia search bar. " -@Oppo

Here's a wikibox for what happens if the Falklands war never happened- based on polls before the war and swingometer calculations

Election 1984:

A thread was created a few hours before this
RIP I didnt see it, I wonder if Cal should lock this then
 
It's kind of annoying we have to staple (Do Not Post Current Politics Here) on every one of these threads. Like I get why, but it's so gaudy and ugly.
 
Reposting a series of infoboxes that I have made for A Bridge to the 21st Century, a Keys to the White House election game by the esteemed Komodo.

Colorado: (Republican Hold)
Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R):
54.7%
Governor Roy Romer (D): 45.2%
Various Others: 0.1%
-Expected to be very close, Senator Nighthorse Campbell managed to outperform expectations and win by around four points more than was initially projected.
-A popular Mountain-West moderate and the only Native American in the Senate, Campbell seemed to meet his match when put up against incumbent Democratic Governor Roy Romer. Romer was semi-popular, popular enough to easily defeat a handful of meek challengers in the Democratic Primary and poll nearly neck-to-neck with Campbell for months.
-Campbell eventually gained the lead in polling, but only by a hair and it was expected that the race was going to come down to the wire, especially when the DNC sent millions of dollars and resources to the Romer campaign. Both sides were confident that they were going to pull it off, the Democrats in particular believing they were the favorites.
-Overconfidence may have ultimately been a major contributing factor to Campbell's out performance of the polls and Romer's loss. Post-race analysis showed that Democratic turnout in key areas was far lower than had been expected, a major blow to the Romer campaign.


While Paul Coverdell was not a particularly unpopular Senator - an effective freshman who generally received positive coverage during his tenure - he was notably little-known in Georgia, with one-third of the state's population having no opinion, negative or positive, of one of the Senate's top Republicans. The Democrats, who perceived Coverdell as highly vulnerable, nominated Michael Coles, a multimillionaire cookie magnate from the north Atlanta suburbs who previously made a name for himself after narrowly losing the district race to succeed disgraced House Speaker Newt Gingrich by 0.23%. Although Coles was not a particularly prominent Democrat himself, his campaign banked heavily on Coverdell's own statewide obscurity and Coles' reputation as a self-made businessman. Moreover, while Coverdell was a good campaigner in his own right, Coles proved to be a tough cookie, being unusually popular in the fiercely Republican suburbs of Atlanta. In the end, the Democrats won one of the costliest races of 1998, denying yet another Republican incumbent a chance to be re-elected in the Peach State.



Fresh off his poor Super Tuesday showing, Oliver North headed for an increasingly tough re-election fight as the presumptive Democratic nominee, Congressman Bobby Scott, prepared to take him down. Becoming a household name through the Iran-Contra scandal, Oliver North was a controversial figure from the outset; with an extremely narrow victory in 1994 over Chuck Robb, one that was contributed to by ads focusing on the feud between Robb and Vice President Douglas Wilder and playing up cocaine abuse and infidelity allegations, North was seen by many as an "accidental Senator", with Today host Katie Couric privately calling North "an obvious one-termer". By 2000, North had a 38% approval rating; he was one of the most unpopular Senators in the country, particularly so because of his campaigning for President,

In contrast, Bobby Scott, who emerged as the frontrunner of the Democratic primary following Robb and 1996 nominee Mark Warner's decision not to run, found that the race for Senate was his to lose. While less charismatic and less well-known nationally than North, Representative Bobby Scott had the backing of Wilder, the Democratic Party of Virginia and most Democratic donors early on, and was bereft of the kind of baggage that dragged down Senator North. Focusing on Scott's support of gay rights and increases to the minimum wage, Oliver North attempted to portray his opponent as an anti-growth radical liberal; however, this did little to damage Bobby Scott's campaign.

In the end, while North campaigned heavily, with numerous visits to NOVA as well as Henrico and Chesterfield Counties, he could not overcome Scott's consistent lead and was ultimately voted out of the Senate by a 8-point margin.

The Conscience of a Libertarian 1/2

It’s extraordinary and strange to think of, but none of this would’ve happened had it not been for Evan Mecham.

In the Republican primaries for the 1990 Arizona gubernatorial election, the disgraced former governor made a surprisingly narrow victory over Fife Symington, shocking many Arizonians who couldn’t believe that the racist impeached crook still had fans. Mecham was a colorful figure, but those hues were some sort of a sickly pale green. Realizing an unlikely opportunity had occurred, David Nolan stated that he would run for the governorship as a candidate for the Libertarian Party, the very organization he founded in the early 1970s.

Nolan got his first boost when he was endorsed by the iconic former senator Barry Goldwater. “Mecham has disgraced the office, and made a mockery of our state,” Goldwater stated in a widely-seen television interview, “Endorsing Mr. Nolan is the only sensitive and sane thing to do, he is the sole remaining candidate who stands for a free and prosperous Arizona.” Quickly, the Nolan team was able to run advertisements across various media platforms of Mecham in unflattering and barely caricatured light.

The funny thing about Arizona’s gubernatorial elections is that if a candidate did not get a majority of the vote it would move to a runoff. The election night results indicated that this would be the case this year:

Rose Mofford (D): 35.1%
David Nolan (L): 33.5%
Evan Mecham (R): 31.4%

At once a runoff between Mofford and Nolan was called for, receiving quite a bit of coverage in the national press. The Nolan campaign was met with new challenges fighting against a Democrat, but they worked hard to attract the support of political independents and other typically apolitical demographics. “Small Government, Big Solutions” was their populist catchphrase, as seen upon many a Maricopa County car’s bumper sticker. The results spoke for themselves:

1592513510357.png


The third-party Nolan became something of a minor political celebrity as the nation’s first Libertarian Party governor. Nolan pledged to finish his first term in office before seeking any higher ambitions, but nonetheless his status as governor played a role in the 1992 election, though he was not on any tickets.

Andre Marrou’s ambitious hunt for the presidency was aided by Nolan serving as proof that libertarian politics could function. Helped along by President Bush’s historic unpopularity, Marrou became the strongest third-party candidate since Theodore Roosevelt, winning Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, and New Hampshire.

A new party system had begun.

1592515563160.png


In 1994, Nolan won reelection against Democrat, and former mayor of Phoenix, Terry Goddard, and Republican businesswoman Barbara Barrett. The Libertarians were winning local elections in many states under the leadership of Party chairman Ron Paul, much to the distress of the GOP. ’94 also brought many to win seats in the federal House of Representatives. Even some famous Republicans, like Patrick Buchanan and Ross Perot, endorsed the party; in addition the Koch brothers pumped their vast fortune into the veins of the emerging beast.

1996 saw Nolan make his first run for the presidency himself, with Harry Browne as his running mate. By coming in second place, the two cemented the unfortunately waning powers of Republican Party, still hooked on big government conservatism.

2000 would see Nolan reach dreams that he thought impossible when he founded his little party decades ago with a small group of friends united in opposition to Richard Nixon…

First I got thinking if Hitler had been in the navy rather than the army during WWI. One thing leads to another and this was what I came up with:

The Soldier's Republic of Prussia was the product of the Revolt of the Sailors, a wave of militaristic left wing protests in response to orders for the High Seas Fleet to sail against the British Royal Navy in a final decisive battle. The Revolt had it's beginnings with unpopular rationing as a result of the tightening British Blockade against the German Empire. As the First World War dragged into 1920 with the collapse of Italy, the Austro Hungarians and Germans finally had to divert forces away from the western front to the newly exposed Italian front. A stalemate developed along the front lines, with the war coming to a bleeding crawl. The Imperial High Command opted to ignore the plight of sailors and soldiers fighting, refusing them leave in order to stave off the enemy. The Soviets were in no place to threaten the new state, being embroiled in their own civil war with the communist general Samsanorov fighting the forces of the White Army.

However, there was a few soviets that saw promise in the unstable German Empire, with numerous left wing groups marshaling their popular forces for strikes on Berlin. First the Imperial Navy refused to leave port, mutinying en mass in solidarity with left wing ideas that had spread like wildfire. The Kaiser fled shortly afterwards upon hearing of the navy's revolt and on the first of June, 1922 the Soldier's Republic of Prussia was declared by Military President August von Mackensen.
Quickly a new constitution, enshrining the rights of sailors, soldiers and military officers, keeping many noble estates in place while granting land to any and all sailors and soldiers who fought in the First World War, was ratified. The country quickly was forced to deal with humiliations at their boarders, with the annexation of Schleswig-Holstein by the Danish particularly bitter.

The conservative faction saw their chance at a counter-coup, headed by the aging Admiral Henning von Holtzendorff. On March 3, 1939, the coup plotters managed to cut off communications between Wilhelmshaven and Munich, a major city within the country, marching into the Assembly of Armies and arresting a few of the delegates gathered there. Holtzendorff demanded the return of the aging Kaiser Wilhelm and the abdication of the still young Schicklgruber. Contention and an armed standoff between naval parliamentarian marines and the coup plotters was avoided with the personal intervention of Schicklgruber. The Volkskaiser gave a passionate speech which prompted the coup plotters to abandon the takeover and side with the government.

The conservative faction's members quickly found themselves rounded up and executed or were making quick getaways under false names and silly moustaches to neighboring countries. It was also the rise of Militärkanzler Magda Goebbels, thanks in part to her husband's generous financial donations to Schicklgruber's large art collection. Her actions during the Global Liberation War have been criticized by many contemporary historians, from invading Romania to declaring war on the Confederate States of America. The end of such a devastating conflict resulted in the loss of Estonia to the reformed Russian Confederation and the re-acquisition of Schleswig-Holstein, a territory which led to strained Danish-Prussian relations for the later half of the 20th century.

A cultural shift and demand for numerous minority and religious rights known as the Prussian Thaw led to the Soldier's Constitution, a passage of numerous democratic reforms and slight liberalization of the economy away from an unstable war/government controlled one to a monopolistic with government oversight one. Goebbels also fell from power, being ousted in a cabinet shuffle in 1958, replaced with general Ludwig von Falkenhausen.

The Soldier's Republic of Prussia embarked on a belligerent foreign policy, sending troops to Vietnam to fight against anti-colonial (and anti-prussian) forces on behalf of C.S President Barry Goldwater and his successor Lyndon B. Johnson in the late 50's to the end of the 60's. Internally the catholic minority was persecuted, with many fleeing to the cesspool of crime and illegal drugs that was the Cosa Nostra Mafia State in the South of Italy following the Italian Civil War. The longstanding and hated Chamberlain dynasty that held sway over the British Empire continued to be one of the major foreign policy obstacles, even more so when Prussia, then Britain developed city destroying weapons known as Donnerwaffe, or Thunder Weapons in the early 60's.

Resistance to decolonization resulted in Prussia backing many anti-colonial forces in opposition to the never ending sun setting british empire. Notable successes was the coup in South Africa which resulted in a majority African government taking the helm and ending the system of apartheid in 1973. A setback was with the attempted overthrow of the French government in exile in order to strengthen the french mainland's position in the Sahara just to fuck with the British a bit. However, the Prussians ultimately lost the staring contest with Chamberlain, as a blink in 2002 turned into a bloody and messy civil war which ultimately signaled the end of the Prussian Soldier's Republic after 82 years. (Officially dissolved in 2004, government categorized as a failed state in 2002 with the civil war)
 

Harold "Tex" Thompson was an American businessman, adventurer, superhero, soldier, and Republican politician. Born in San Antonio to a life of wealth, Thompson was a popular, intelligent, and athletic student throughout his childhood and into university. After graduation, he turned down the chance to succeed his father as one of Texas' premier oil barons to travel the world with friend Bob Daley, seeking a chance to make a name for himself, and to achieve wealth and success on his own merits. Sometime after returning home to Texas, he took up the secret identity of Mr. America, and used a flying carpet he had discovered during his travels to fight crime and corruption across the western United States.

While initially joining the All-Star Squadron after the outbreak of World War 2, he joined the Army under his real name, eventually being transferred to the Office of Strategic Services, where he was sent to Germany under the pseudonym "Hauptmann Otto Riker" for several years. In 1944 Heinrich Müller, Director of the Gestapo, was poisoned to death. Despite being a well-known fact among military personal, it was not officially confirmed that Thompson was responsible until 1970.

Despite coming from a Democratic family, and campaigning for both Roosevelt and Truman in the 1930's and 1940's, Thompson joined the Republican Party in 1952, spurred on by Dwight Eisenhower's run for President. That same year, he ran for the 68th district in the Texas House of Representatives as a Republican and, despite the odds, won. He was the only Republican in the state legislature during his term. In 1954 he lost, largely due to vote stuffing from the state Democrats. In 1956 he ran for Governor, knowing he wouldn't win, but intended to "make the [Texas] Democrats work," (Thompson got just shy of a third of the vote).

When a local newspaper asked why he ran hopeless campaigns for office as a Republican instead of as a Democrat, he answered, “If I wanted to be Senator or Governor, I'd have run as a Democrat. But I am more interested in giving Texas a real alternative to a century of Democrat [sic] misrule.” He headed Richard Nixon's successful Texas campaigns in both 1960 and 1964, and George Bush's 1964 Senate campaign, the first time a Republican had been elected to the Senate from Texas since Reconstruction.

Despite his generally conservative positions, he was an active proponent of federal funding for veterans education, environmental protection, subsidized housing, and civil rights, castigating Republicans who wanted to abandon the latter to win white Texas. He actively lobbied President's Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Nixon to pass strong civil and voting rights acts. From the 1970's to his death, he remained active in political circles, but limited himself to endorsements and fundraisers.

Both of his identities as "Mr. America" and "Americommando" have been used by multiple unrelated people throughout the years. It is unknown which, if any, of them have a connection to Tex Thompson.
 
This is REALLY neat, seeing a lesser-known character like this get a spotlight.
It's really fun to play with the more obscure and esoteric characters. What did they do in the meantime? What did they believe in? How would they fit into this reality? All questions I love trying to answer.

I have a few more in the works, some more well-known, some relatively obscure, some completely forgotten to the point I doubt DC has even bothered renewing the trademark on them.
 
Empress Jessamine gave the impression of a visibly unhealthy woman...

Also, Tom Holland, Duke of Cambridge. Nice.
She smoked from age 19 onward (but lived a rather long life, her mother managed age 105 drinking almost three pints of alcohol every day, but she did exercise, and marry twice after widowhood hit the first time)

He was the only actor that I though looked relatively similar to the family line shown
