It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... a politician saying something he may regret later.

Jeb Bush spoke at a Las Vegas event on Wednesday, where he was asked to name his favorite Marvel superhero, reported CNN.

Bush appeared to have a bit of trouble naming one, saying instead, "I like watching the movies. I wish I owned Marvel, as someone that believes in capitalism."

"I like the old-school guys like Batman, a little dark these days," he continued, showing his apparent affinity for DC Comics.

Then, the presidential candidate — who is married with three children — made it known that he finds Melissa Benoist, star of CBS' new Supergirl, to be easy on the eyes.

"I saw it when I was working out this morning," said Bush about an ad for the show. "She looked kinda ... she looked pretty hot. I don't know which channel it's on, but I'm looking forward to that."

After the audience laughed, Bush — who continues to lag in polls for the GOP race behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson — acknowledged, "That'll make news."
