When Superman Meets Obama (Superman/Wonder Woman SPOILERS)


Bleeding Cool has previously looked at DC Comics' peek-a-boo use of Obama as President of the United States in its comics of late. But in today's Superman/Wonder Woman it goes all out. With a walk around the White House garden with the man they now call Clark Kent.

Beginning with a man who cuts through the red tape faster than a speeding… actually, let's not use that kind of line in proximity to the President, okay? There are issues.

Which, you know, they're probably not really meant to do. Time for a walk amongst the blossom…

IMG_0033b Yeah, Obama quoting MLK, it's hard to argue with that kind of rhetoric.

IMG_0033 A number of which were aimed at Superman, or infected Superman, and saw mass destruction in their wake? Still nice to have a continuity checklist….


Yup, it's another Guantanamo, isn't it?



Aside from when you've been possessed by Doomsday, the Joker, or whoever, of course. Oh wait, we said that…
