From the Desk of J. Jonah Jameson:
This move by Marvel can only be interpreted in one of two ways. Marvel is possibly continuing their insidious plot to advance the "Mutant Agenda" in some misguided attempt to end anti-mutant sentiments in the Middle East. We all know that Marvel has long been seeking to undermine our value systems to get people to think of mutants as anything other than the threat they are. These abominations have enough power to destroy the world! Need I remind anyone of the atrocities Magneto has committed?
The other possibility, and the more likely one in my opinion, is that Marvel desires to convert the world to Thor worship. Rumor has it that "Thorsday" celebrations have already begun in the Middle East, and this reporter has received news of "rain ceremony" sacrifices being made to the Thunder God. With America as the new Rome, will this ancient religion turn the Middle East into a new version of the Gothic hordes who conquered the once great empire?
My only question is what will Apocalypse, aka En Sabah Nur, think? More to the point...what will the people of the Middle East think about Apocalypse (one of Marvel's major supervillains), or of Sabra, aka Ruth Bat-Seraph, the superpowered Israeli special agent?
Who will offend them more?
