    I took it as a mashup of "The Dark Knight Rises" with the X-Men "Dark Phoenix Saga." (If you're not familiar, Jean Grey, one of the X-Men, became "The Phoenix" via a variety of different means in different story lines over the decades. Her barely-controllable near-omnipotence gradually drover her insane and evil, and she became "Dark Phoenix." Whether as Phoenix or Dark Phoenix, her power often manifested as a great bird-shaped flaming aura.)

      And I see a Nick Fury, then and now mashup.

          I think you're right about the mashup. I'm not familiar with a lot of newer films (especially ones with fantasy elements) but there appears to be several themes going on.

            Me either. I think it's NorrinRadd's mashup. Haven't found the bearded reference yet.

              That may be part of the "new" Nick Fury. Here's a close-up:

                Basically, it's a mash-up mash-up: Dark Phoenix, Dark Knight, "old" (i.e. white, not bald) Nick Fury, "new" (i.e. black, bald) Nick Fury.

                  That's "Rip and Tear" Dark Brandon.

                  Still funny how they're portraying a man who gets lost walking into the White House and who's toxic farting at a state dinner became the topic of discussion is anything but the bumbling duffer we've seen all along.

                  Maybe they can do a Dark Brandon meme of him falling off his bicycle when he comes to a stop.

                    Looks like after his speech where Biden succeeded in emulating both Hitler and the Emperor in Star Wars, "Dark Brandon" has been memory-holed by his keepers.

                      It was always a dumb idea, but I guess it took Joe going off the rails in a way that was impossible to spin for his handlers to realize it.

                        He continues preaching divisivism every chance he gets but the whole Dark Brandon meme is dead.

                          Oh, it's very much alive. It's just being used by the other side of the political aisle.

                            AFAICT, the memes stopped being posted shortly after his speech

                              I missed this one when posted. Reminds me of this that I read regularly back in the day:
