In Civil War II #0. James Rhodes, War Machine, was offered the position of Secretary Of Defense by the President of the United States with the eventual aim of Rhodes becoming President himself. Silhouetted in black, the shape of the head and the ears did seem to indicate that this was Obama making the offer.

Is Marvel foreshadowing President Carol Danvers? Well she's certainly enough of a fascist to take the role, right kids? President Dredd next?

Anyway, it's not like she's as divisive a figure as Hillary Clinton, is she?

Might we have had a 2020 vision here?
