While struggling to answer a question about his favorite Marvel superhero on Wednesday night, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said that the actress playing Supergirl on a new CBS show “looked pretty hot.”

During the Libre Forum in Las Vegas, Bush was asked who his favorite Marvel superhero is, according to CNN.

“I like watching the movies. I wish I owned Marvel, as someone that believes in capitalism,” he said in response.

“I don’t know, I’m kinda old school,” he added, according to CNN. “I like the old school guys like Batman, a little dark these days.”

Bush kept going, perhaps because Batman is not a Marvel superhero. The former governor mentioned that he saw an ad for the new CBS show “Supergirl” starring Melissa Benoist.

“I saw it when I was working out this morning,” he said. “She looked kind of … she looked pretty hot. I don’t know which channel it’s on, but I’m looking forward to that.”

He then added, “That’ll make news,” according to CNN.
