If you ask Republicans, you may indeed receive some unflattering comments about Joe Biden, but his comic book alter-ego is just way too ironic.
The Marvel Universe is filled with hundreds of different characters, but you could hardly imagine discovering a supervillain called Joe Biden, could you?
Yet Marvel fans have recently learnt that such a supervillain exists! Joe Biden, a.k.a Spectrum, first appeared in the March 2010 issue "Peter Parker #1". With ‘colour-bending’ superpowers, Spectrum is a villain opposing Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.
However, to avoid confusing, Marvel Database has thoughtfully added a note to Spectrum’s character page explaining that the fictional supervillain is not the incumbent US president.

This did not stop Twitter users from chuckling when they found out.
Witty Spider-Man fans even came up with the villainous catchphrases that Spectrum could borrow from his presidential namesake.

One fan noted that Spectrum has actually had more appearances than El Muerto - an antihero that has recently been awarded a solo movie from Sony Pictures, with reggaeton singer Bad Bunny landing the leading role.
So, fans concluded, Sony should definitely mull the idea of rolling out a movie about Joe Biden a.k.a. Spectrum as well!

In the two frames where Spectrum first appears, Spider-Man is seen yelling: "Yo, Mr. Invincible! I don't even know your name!" with the villain responding: "It's Joe! Joe Biden! But you can call me 'Spectrum'!"

Others drew more sinister conclusions relating to Spectrum’s ‘colour-bending’ powers. Users noted how real-life Joe Biden once said that if a black person chooses not to vote for him, they are probably "not black".
In addition to Spectrum, the real Joe Biden has also appealed in the Marvel Universe as a politician, appearing in "Amazing Spider-Man #683" as the 47th Vice President of the United States.
