Christmas is right around the corner. And what is Christmas about? No not the birth of Jesus Christ. It's about Santa! And since it's all about Santa, let's take a look at how some comic book characters would handle being Santa.
When you absolutely have to have someone deliver presents to every good boy and girl in the world, who better to do it than the fastest man alive? Not only is he the fastest man alive, Flash is more likely to be a little more lenient on the naughty kids if they at least tried to be good or became better kids for the right reasons. And if a few toys weren't finished by the time it was time to go, then he could make them in the blink of an eye. He'd be the perfect Santa
Only a step slower than The Flash in the gift giving department. Clarice wouldn't even have to leave the North Pole to deliver gifts. All she had to do was Blink them right under the Christmas tree. The kids who wait up for Santa would never catch a glimpse of her because she would never actually be there. And even if she did have to be in the vicinity of the house, she wouldn't have to leave the sleigh.
Quicksilver and Northstar:
While they are both fast enough to get the job done, they are both a-holes. It's completely believable that they wouldn't want to be bothered with delivering gifts to children. Especially ones they don't know. Neither of them would care enough to deliver thoughtful gifts. They'd probably deliver their autobiographies or autographs of their headshots.
He literally knows when you are sleeping, awake, naughty, or nice. It would be near impossible to get over on Xavier Clause. Here's the good news, if you are good you will get the perfect gift. Mind readers are good like that. Except Emma. She falls under the Quicksilver category.
To quote Will from the Wednesday podcast, "Doom would be the worst Santa ever". He's not wrong. I'm shocked that putting on the Santa Claus costume wasn't beneath him. He would probably end up giving gifts to only kids from Latveria and that's only if they didn't believe in Santa Claus. There could only be Santa Doom.
No way he even believes in Santa. Only way Magneto celebrates Christmas is if Santa was a mutant. Otherwise, no Christmas in Genosha.
This is how it would go. Someone would come to Tony Stark and ask if he could save Christmas. Stark obviously says yes. First thing he does is probably fire all the elves and bring in his own people. Once his people are in place, he hires a telepath to scan for naughty and nice and have someone make the list. Stark then spends the first six months creating Iron Man type robots to make and deliver the gifts. He'd then tell everyone he is Santa so he can get credit for his work.
