Marvel turns Donald Trump into a comic-book villain — literally

Published

on

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.

The number of Americans identifying as atheists is increasing -- and recent social science research suggests that the Christian Right is playing a key role in making that happen.

As reported by Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight, new research has found that distaste for Trump-loving Christian conservatism has not just turned some Americans off from individual churches but from religion altogether.

"As recently as the early 1990s, less than 10 percent of Americans lacked a formal religious affiliation, and liberals weren’t all that much likelier to be nonreligious than the public overall," FiveThirtyEight notes. "Today, however, nearly one in four Americans are religiously unaffiliated. That includes almost 40 percent of liberals — up from 12 percent in 1990, according to the 2018 General Social Survey."

President Donald Trump this week mocked one of his Hispanic supporters during a campaign rally by claiming that he looked white and then asking him, "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"

In an interview with ABC News, Republican consultant Mike Madrid slammed Trump and said his remarks made it sound like he was trying to make "a distinction between Hispanics and true Americans."

Madrid added that the president seems to believe that Hispanics must renounce their heritage in order to be truly accepted as American citizens.
