So… I actually composed this meme back in January, in time for the Inauguration… but recent events have made it perhaps even more relevant today so I’m finally getting around to putting it on the blog. I still have a lot of stuff that I’ve done this year that never managed to make it to the blog, but I’m starting to try and catch up!
I did post this on Facebook back then, to mixed reactions… including at least one Donald Trump supporter who didn’t “get it” apparently. I thought it was a pretty good parody of the Independence Day movie poster, juxtaposed with reaction to last year’s Presidential election here in the US. Nothing super-profound or anything… just an obvious jab. 🙂 It’s a mixture of bits from the original movie poster and some heads of appropriate political figures (Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin) that I found on the Internet to mash-up together in Photoshop.

Still reeling from last week’s Captain America and Hydra conspiracy, the Internet can’t catch a break! Even as I just explained the truth behind Captain America’s revelation, we find ourselves smacked in the face with a conspiracy so deep, I was only able to uncover it late last night at great personal risk. Be warned, the following image is not for the feint of heart…
As you can see, we’ve all been fooled! Martian Manhunter, or J’onn J’onnz as he is sometimes known, has only been feigning love for Oreos all these years. Secretly, he has been a double-agent in support of the insidiously delicious Hydrox corporation! Can you believe it? Oh, the Martianity! Did he even think of the children?
How much more can comics readers take of their favorite characters dirty secrets coming to light? How much more can my blog followers take of my strange and often horrible sense of humor? Only time will tell…
Don’t forget to let me know what you think of this and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
So… I wanted to let this simmer for a bit, so as not to spoil things for anyone but if you have been living under a rock since before last Wednesday, I can no longer help you out!
Last week Marvel Comics released a new title, Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, and there was a huge reveal in it… There is a panel where Captain America utters words you never thought you would hear him say, “Hail Hydra!” and the Internet exploded. The most patriotic superhero ever created, revealed to retroactively always have been a deep cover Hydra agent? Say it ain’t so!
I’ll leave it to you to actually read the comic and follow the series to see what happens… but I’m going to blow the lid off the conspiracy right now with the secret that was right under comic readers’ very noses the whole time! You see, all you had to do was blow up that panel a bit and zoom in on what Captain America is really saying to see the true story.
So, there you have it… Captain America hasn’t gone rogue after all… he’s just a bit parched and extremely pro hydration! Please tell all your friends so that they can sleep better tonight… and, remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
