Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be a heroine to legions of fans, but Wonder Woman, she ain’t — so says DC Comics.
The publisher issued a cease-and-desist to a small comics company barring it from selling covers of the freshman Democrat in attire resembling that of Wonder Woman, according to comics sites.
Devil’s Due Comics is running a comic about AOC called “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?”
“Grab a hamberder and grab a cup of covfefe and prepare to enjoy this read!” a promotional webpage reads, citing jargon associated with President Trump.
According to comicbook.com, DC Comics urged Devil’s Due Comics not to distribute the 250 planned copies of the special cover with AOC wearing a metallic tiara and blue skirt — and standing over a knocked-out red elephant. Copies with different covers were not challenged.
But the Wonder Woman theme can still be found online. A copy was selling for about $25 on eBay on Saturday night.
Devils Due Comics advertises several comics with political themes, like “Talk Bernie to Me” and “Barack the Barbarian.”
I watched it last night. That lady was crazy. It was strange to see everyone but one guy not wear a tie to this debate, but I guess that's the typical uniform for tech executives.
I thought everyone wore a tie except for Mr. Yang? I also thought the Governor standing next to Ms. Williamson wore a tie that really didn't complement his outfit.
Oops, that's what I meant. Everyone, but one guy, wore a tie. I also thought it was strange that several of the speakers spoke with their upper lips frozen and when they were talking all I was paying attention to was their brown bottom teeth. How can they take care of the country if they can't even take care of their teeth? A couple times when Bernie was speaking I thought his dentures were going to pop out.
Ditch Fahrenheit: Just clippers. First time in the pandemic my hair was long, so I just shaved my head. The next time I did a buzz cut with a fade on the sides using different spacers. Did the same thing again this time. It's almost 3/4" long on top...

Ditch Fahrenheit: ...and about half that on the sides. I might keep this up. It's kinda cool not to have to rely on a barber or stylist.

StuDaBaker: Johanna refuses to cut my hair. My hair is currently the longest it's been in 20 years.
