    I didn't notice that before. Looking at it all it becomes the cherry on top of this cringe Sundae.

      Graffiti scrawled on the hammer
      Wearing "Air-Valhalla Nikes"
      Hoodie strings attached to his armor or cloak
      A flat top fade with blonde tips haircut
      Lives in "the hood"
      Raps and says "by Odin's fade" instead of "by Odin's beard"

      Seriously, are there any stereotypes they missed?

      I heard they did versions of him as Wolverine and the Hulk as well. Were these so far off the mark as well?

      I'm always still in trouble again

        Well, here are some images. The Wolverine version also has a hoodie. The Hulk one looks more like Obama than Miles Morales, but maybe that's just my poor facial recognition skills.

          I don't know if its because I read your mention before seeing the image, but now I can't unsee Obama as the Hulk.

            I just asked my dad if that version of the Hulk reminded him of anyone. He didn't see Obama until I mentioned it, and now he can't unsee it either.

                Originally the Hulk was gray but it didn't look good in comic books so he became green.

                  From what I understand there was a problem with the gray ink they were using. Reports on what the problem was vary. Some sources say it ended up looking green by the time people bought it, and another said it looked inconsistent from page to page.

                    Mine will probably sit next to yours.

                    I had to turn down a few requests, they weren't racist enough and I generally won't do food like fried chicken or anything.
                    I have my standards.
