Donald Trump appears as supervillain in new Marvel comic

A week after revealing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will appear on the cover of a new issue of “Civil War II”, Marvel Comics are wading back into politics, featuring presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a much less flattering way.

Trump, or a very close likeness of him, can currently be seen as the villain M.O.D.O.K. in “Spider-Gwen Annual #1”, an alternate universe edition to the Spiderman comics.

In the comic, Peter Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacey is bit by the radioactive spider instead of Peter and becomes the web-slinging hero. M.O.D.A.K., whose previous acronym stood for Mental Organism Designed Only For Killing now stands for Mental Organism Designed As America’s King.

In case anyone didn’t recognise Trump’s famous mug on M.O.D.O.K.’s trademark enormous head, at one point the villain begins saying “Must make America—” before getting hit by Captain America’s shield. In this alternate Marvel Universe, Captain America is a black woman.

Comics have a long history of using current politicians in their stories, famously featuring Hitler getting punched out by Captain America on the cover of 1941’s “Captain America Comics #1”.

However, this time around, Donald Trump’s appearance has drawn mixed reaction on social media.
