  1. I'm not sure I 'got' this page at all. It built quite nicely with a serious tone, then that last panel threw a curveball.

    Hurm. Maybe it's just me?

    1. The last panel is in reference to the current story line in the new Marvel Now Deadpool (In which all of the former and dead Presidents have been resurrected and are looking to take America over.)

      My aim was kinda to try and show that no matter how serious Marvel try to make their big events you also have some really goof stuff going on as well, I wanted to try and use the President as the bridge between them, he'd be the guy who would have to deal with both sides.
