Smiler, The (Transmetropolitan)
Real Name: Gary Callahan
Search for 'Smiler, The (Transmetropolitan)' on Amazon

The Smiler is the presidential candidate who is elected at the end of the first story arc of the comic. Nicknamed for his wide, rigid, nearly perpetual grin, The Smiler is originally given Spider's grudging support, until he proves to be far more corrupt and dangerous than The Beast. The Smiler privately admits to Spider that he hates everyone and only wants to be President in order to control and oppress people, and begins a personal vendetta against Spider after the journalist repeatedly humiliates him in the public eye
