Webpage on Marvel Comics villain redirects to Trump's official WH page

A webpage on a fictional Marvel Comics terrorist group now redirects to President Trump's official page on the White House website.

The Hollywood Reporter first noticed on Thursday that users who type “hail-hydra.com” into their web browsers arrive at Trump’s page. The Reporter said it is unclear who set up the redirect, with the last update showing April 16.

Hydra is a recurring antagonist in Marvel Comics storylines and their offshoot media properties. The fictional extremist organization has repeatedly clashed with the Avengers superhero team in mediums including comics and movies.

The 2014 film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” featured members of the group proclaiming their allegiance with the phrase “Hail Hydra.” Marvel Comics is currently publishing an ongoing storyline about Hydra called “Secret Empire.”

The redirect appears to have been set up in the middle of April, with the last update to the site showing as April 16.
