The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is now joining the ranks of legendary superheroes like Spider-Man and Captain America with his own Marvel comic cover.
The August 31 issue called 'Civil War II: Choosing Sides' was illustrated by Ramon Perez and features contents written by Edmonton, Alberta's Chip Zdarsky. The Canadian Prime Minister is depicted inside of a boxing ring, sporting patriotic apparel and his First Nations tattoo. Story-wise, the comic pits Iron Man and Captain Marvel against one another, while a group of other characters from Alpha Fight seek the counsel of Justin Trudeau on deciding which team to join.
This Marvel comic cover and its story speaks to the unique qualities of Canada's young leader as an individual, as well as Canada's role as a political mediator.
