Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Appears On New Marvel Comic Book Cover

In case you haven’t gotten enough of Justin Trudeau lately, there is now a way to memorialize the beloved Canadian prime minister.

Trudeau appears on the cover of a new issue of the Marvel comic book Civil War II: Choosing Sides, NPR reports. That’s right. In addition to photo bombing weddings, balancing babies andhugging panda cubs, Trudeau is now an action hero.

Featured on the variant cover of issue No. 5, the 44-year-old prime minister is shown sitting in a boxing ring and wearing a tank top emblazoned with a maple leaf. Behind him are Puck, Sasquatch and Aurora, members of Canadian superhero team Alpha Flight, with Iron Man in the left corner, according to the Toronto Star.

Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the new comic? No shirtless sketches of Trudeau. Toronto-based cartoonist Ramon Perez, who is behind the Trudeau depiction, told NPR his original draft did feature a bare-chested Trudeau, but Marvel thought the move might be too risqué.

The story centers around a new character named Ulysses who can see into the future, and the Alpha Flight squad is divided over whether to use the information to arrest potential criminals, according to NPR. But for more details, fans will just have to pick up the issue.
