A new villain in the Marvel Comics universe is gaining attention for his similarities to Donald TrumpDonald TrumpSouth Carolina Senate adds firing squad as alternative execution method Ex-Trump aide Pierson won't run for Dallas-area House seat House Oversight panel reissues subpoena for Trump's accounting firm MORE.

Comic book artist Jason Latour introduced the character in the recently released “2016 Spider Gwen Annual,” The Telegraph said Monday.


The antagonist is named MODAAK, which stands for “Mental Organism Designed as America’s King.” MODAAK clashes with a black, female Captain America in the storyline after insulting another character as “foreign filth.”

MODAAK is a twist on the original Captain America villain MODOK, a “Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.”

Twitter users quickly seized on MODAAK’s resemblance to Trump, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee.

The Telegraph also pointed to one illustration that subtly mocks Trump’s hands, reportedly a sensitive topic for the billionaire.

MODAAK threatens to “crush [Captain America] in my powerful hands,” only to have the superheroine knock him out with her shield.
