Marvel Universe

John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), often referred to by his initials JFK, was the thirty-fifth President of the United States, serving from 1961 until his assassination in 1963.

All-Winners Squad prevent the assassination of a young Senator John F. Kennedy in 1946. The skirmish costs the life of the second Captain America, William Naslund, formerly the Spirit of '76.

Hulk villain John Ryker manipulated the creation of the conspiracy around the assassination of John F Kennedy; apparently Kennedy was really killed by two Austrian mercenaries, but at the time it was deemed too expensive to wage World War Three so the idea of a conspiracy was created.

DC Universe

An actual recording of JFK can be heard on the Justice League New Frontier DVD set


Superman's Mission for President Kennedy

Originally scheduled for publication in Superman #168, a special story was written and drawn to help promote President John F. Kennedy's fitness program. However, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, and DC decided not to run the story. "Superman's Mission for President Kennedy" was replaced by a story called "Luthor - Super-Hero!"

President Johnson's administration contacted DC and informed them that Johnson wanted the fitness story published, "as a tribute to my great predecessor." The Kennedy family also gave their OK to print the story.

The story "Superman's Mission for President Kennedy finally ran in Superman #170. Even though it was the first story in the issue DC decided not to feature Kennedy on the cover due to the shock and sadness still in the country at that time.
