Exclusive First Look: New UN Superheroes

Tigerhawk calls it a comic book sacrilege:

Marvel superheroes are apparently going to fight under the auspices of the United Nations. As a longstanding fan with more than 5,000 comics in my attic, I call bull***t. With the possible exception of the Fantastic Four (who have always worked with the Man), there are no important superheroes in the Marvel Universe who would work for the United Nations. Certainly not Spider-Man. Unless, of course, the story requires them to beat up on United Nations soldiers for raping girls and trading sex for favors. But somehow I don't think that's the point...

In his first major scoop, our enterprising cub reporter Biff Spackle offers an initial UN superhero comic book.

IAEA Man: a superhero devoted to helping dictators, terrorists and tyrants acquire nuclear weapons.

Hat tip: Larwyn. Original covers: Superdickery
