DC Comics, the owners of the Wonder Woman character have sent a cease and desist order to Devil’s Due Comics after they used a picture of AOC on their cover wearing a Wonder Woman costume.
It’s obviously satire because AOC is wrapped in an American flag and that she would never do. The comic book had a print run of just 250 copies and would damage DC comics by making it appear that Wonder Woman is brainless. Who wants a retarded superhero?
The only difference in their costumes is that AOC has an A whereas Wonder Woman has a W.
The artwork portrays Ocasio-Cortez, draped in a flag, dressed in the heroine’s signature costume. The only difference is that there is an “A” on her chest where the “W” would normally be.
DC does not only want the production of this comic to cease — they also want the existing ones not to be distributed, issues already sold to be recalled and remaining copies to be destroyed.
“The cover, however, had already been printed, so while 250 won’t be available, there will be some to get your hands on if you want them, but do expect the price to jump. The cover was originally sold for $30 by NY Collector Cave and then jumped to $40 from several sellers on eBay. It jumped again to $70 on eBay, and you can bet it will make another jump over the next week or so,” ComicBook.com reports.
There are already currently issues of the exclusive cover on eBay ranging from $399 to $999 — or best offer.
“It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the ‘Freshmen Force’ (of Congress) vs. the establishment in this all-new special! Comic creators converge to celebrate the election of the most diverse group of freshman Representatives in history, and spare no-one in this satire that takes aim at Washington,” the Devil’s Due description of the comic reads.
