Marvel comic book villains seem to be taking their lead from the British Prime Minister!

In Al Ewing’s second volume of ‘Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders’, a guard takes the words right out of David Cameron’s mouth when he informs his prisoners their rights are being revoked. The comic book character quotes the PM’s address to the National Security Council, made shortly after the last General Election.

Thanks to Alex Hughes for finding this quirky tale.
