Marvel comics has recently revealed a new super villain. It goes by the name of M.O.D.A.A.K. The acronym stands for Mental Organism Designed as America’s King. Perhaps the most disturbing part of the villain is that it features tiny hands, a big head, white around the eyes, and an overall orange hue.
Those on Twitter were quick to figure out its resemblance to dull trump. It’s a dead ringer, and the doppelgänger of the Republican candidate is featured within the last issue of Spider-Gwen.
M.O.D.A.A.K. fights a battle against a female Captain America. The ironic reference is based upon the size of Trump’s hands, which has been an ongoing discussion. The warning issued to the female Captain America is that M.O.D.A.A.K. will crush her in “my powerful hands.”
It isn’t the first time that comic book artists have used public figures within their comic books. In fact, Trump himself has been made into a villain on multiple occasions. At Comic Con in New York, in October 2015, io9 asked a few of the artists to draw the candidate as one of their favorite villains.
Nathan Fox took the challenge, and created a sketch that is remarkably similar to how M.O.D.A.A.K. was eventually depicted.
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have also received some comic book treatment, which came from storm entertainment in 2015. However, the main difference is that the Democratic candidates were depicted not a super villains, but as ordinary human beings. The same company has published “Political Power” comics that have featured Elizabeth Warren, Clinton, Senator Rand Paul, and even former Florida governor, Jeb Bush. A biographical comic of Donald Trump was even created in 2012 when he flirted with possibly running for POTUS.
