Honorable mention: Walt Whitman: Neck Puncher.
With the astounding box-office success of "historical" genre mash-ups like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and The Raven, it's time for those Hollywood guys whose only job is to add a "2" or "3" after movies to look up from their inspirational white powder and start greenlighting more of these films. Americans are hungry for false history like never before, so we've cobbled together these nine ideas that should have kids devouring our nation's history like it was made of grease and trans-fats.
#1: Richard Nixon: Zombie Shanker
#2: Susan B. Anthony: Bikini Inspector
#3: James Madison: Werewolf Fondler
#4: John Quincy Adams: Balrog Slapper
#5: Harry Truman: Nut Shrinker
