Rich Johnston's IRON MUSLIM #1

Script by Rich Johnston
Illustrated by Bryan Turner
Boom! Studios

Avengers parodies are all the rage!
Good thing I've seen the movies, though, for I
Eschew these comics. Still, I turn each page
And laugh anew. Al Stark is just this guy
In old Iraq, who has now to pretend
Fanaticism, all so he can make
His bombs and gadgets. Of course, he can bend
All to his will, can even go and take
A drone for parts to pimp his metal suit.
His backstory is funny but the tale
Of killing Lady Liberty's a hoot!
And speaking of the movies, one can't fail
To note a certain cynicism re
The exploitations on the screens we see.
