Now It's Sarah Palin Vs David Tennant In America's Got Powers

In America's Got Powers from Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch we've been used to seeing a little photo reference going on with the head scientist being "played" by David Tennant and the US Senator involved with the superreality TV show bearing an uncanny resemblance to Sarah Palin.

In America's Got Powers #5, from Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch out today we get to see them both again. Minor spoilers going ahead so, you know…

We get Sarah Palin saying things like…

So it's celebrity icon vs celebrity icon, all the time while massive superhero battles go on above their heads. And by massive, we mean massive, Bryan Hitch takes his giant battles of The Ultimates and takes it up a peg. It really is rather good.

But would Sarah Palin and David Tennant approve of their likenesses being used in this comic book?

That's alright then! And I know they got Tennant's permission in person. Still, who's the one with the gun?
