Justin Trudeau debuts on Marvel cover with Canadian superheroes, Iron Man Add to ...

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has officially entered the Marvel universe – and the boxing ring – as a newly minted comic cover star.

Trudeau appears on the variant cover of issue No. 5 of Marvel’s “Civil War II: Choosing Sides” released Wednesday.

Marvel offered a sneak peek at the cover earlier this summer, which features Trudeau sitting, smiling and relaxed, in the ring wearing a Maple Leaf-emblazoned tank, black shorts and red boxing gloves.

Standing behind him are Puck, Sasquatch and Aurora, who are members of Canadian superhero squad Alpha Flight, while Iron Man is seen in the left corner with his arms crossed.

The variant cover featuring the prime minister is the alternative to the main cover in circulation showcasing Aurora, Puck, Sasquatch and Nick Fury.

In the special issue, Trudeau offers advice to members of Alpha Flight – formally the Canadian peacekeeping force – during a visit to his Ottawa office. He later steps into the ring with Iron Man himself, also known as Tony Stark.
