ABSTRACT
The article assesses the use of political allegory focusing on the War on Terror in various comics in the U.S. War on Terror as a subject is embedded in the superhero genre in which a superhero can kill a president because of his decision to engage in an illegal war in Iraq, an example of which is Warren Ellis' "Black Summer." "Civil War," created by Marvel in 2006, also reflected the same story.
