Marvel turns Donald Trump into a comic-book villain — literally
Donald Trump — or at least his likeness — makes an appearance in a Marvel Comics publication this week, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The Republican presidentical candidate is turned from a mogul into the villain M.O.D.A.A.K. — short for Mental Organism Designed As America’s King — in the pages of Spider-Gwen Annual #1, where he is seen ordering a minion around and calling him “foreign filth” before announcing, “If America will not act, M.O.D.A.A.K. must!” to herald his plan to rule the US.
The Spider-Gwen series by Jason Latour, Chris Visions, and Jim Campbell is an alternate take on the Spider-Man franchise, set in a parallel world where Peter Parker’s death inspires Gwen Stacy — Gwen Stacy (a former girlfriend of his in regular continuity) to become Spider-Woman. But the story pits M.O.D.A.A.K. against another hero, Samantha Wilson — that world’s Captain America. Wilson is seen toting a bat bearing the phrase “hot sauce,” an homage to Beyoncé’s album Lemonade.
Comicbook.com posted a scene from the story showing the villain’s Trump-like profile and getting hit while saying, “Must make America –,” which can be seen below.
