Justin Trudeau to appear in Marvel comic book

Justin Trudeau on the cover of Civil War IICanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is officially a member of the Marvel universe.

Trudeau will appear on the cover of issue No. 5 of Marvel’s Civil War II: Choosing Sides, which comes out Aug. 31. The cover art was released today.

Trudeau is depicted as a boxer, with Iron Man in his corner. Also in his corner are Puck, Sasquatch and Aurora, all of whom belong to Alpha Flight – Canada’s answer to the Avengers.

Trudeau is wearing a maple leaf tank top with red boxing gloves, as well his signature smile.

The comic will center around an ethical dilemma. A new hero named Ulysses is introduced. Ulysses has the power to predict the future with a high degree of accuracy. Alpha Flight wants to use Ulysses to stop crimes before they happen, but Iron Man thinks a punishment should come after the crime. Remember, Ulysses isn’t 100 percent accurate all the time.

The members of Alpha Flight decide to go Trudeau for advice.

This isn’t the first time a Canadian Prime Minister, or a Trudeau, has appeared in Marvel. Trudeau’s late father Pierre appeared in Uncanny X-Men in 1979.

    A bit much….hard to take him seriously.

    Ew. No one needs to see his chubby face in a comic. He’s such a fame whore.

    Every Canadian on the planet is going to want a copy.

    His powers are throwing elbows like it’s nobody’s business.

    When did Marvel start writing comedy? When I first saw the title to this little article, I thought at first it was a joke. Then when I read the actual article, I was surprised to learn it was true. What sort of superpower is Marvel going to give him? The power to be the center of attention?

    I agree with Andrea’s comment, no one needs to see an attention seeker appearing in a Marvel comic. As for Snepts comment, you can not pre-determine what every Canadian on the planet wants. If someone gave me a copy of that comic, I would laugh at it first before throwing it into a bonfire to burn. This is what happens when Marvel starts to run out of good ideas. I think I’ll just stick to DC Comics for a while.
