How Marvel Comics Refers To Donald Trump Now That He's President, In Marvel Two-In-One #1 (SPOILERS)
Marvel Two-In-One is a highly anticipated launch title for Marvel Legacy by Chip Zdarsky and Jim Cheung. Seen as a possible precursor for the return of the Fantastic Four to the comics, it features the Thing and the Human Torch getting up to, well, whatever it is superheroes get up to. Saving the day, preserving the legacy of the superhero team that Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter doesn't want to publish anymore so as to snub Fox Studios.
Perlmutter is, of course, one of the largest donors to Donald Trump's political campaign and serves as part of the new administration in regard to Veteran Affairs. Perlmutter himself fought in the Six Day War as an Israeli soldier before he came to the USA and made his fortune.
And we've been told that Marvel Comics is taking a step away from overt politics that peaked with the Secret Empire series, about a fascist gaining supreme power in the USA through purely legal means, set up to preserve security over freedom.
So what has this to do with Marvel Two-In-One? Well, I'm told that Spider-Man pops by to see The Thing. And describes him as "The World's Second Most Well-Known Orange Monster"
UPDATE: I've been sent the preview art to confirm this…
It's a bit more subtle than the way they used to do this, in the Spider-Gwen Annual pre-Election.
